About Us

 

Hello, there! We’re Christina and Emily, a mother-daughter duo based in Windsor, Ontario, whose mission is to dazzle and delight with gifts that are as beautiful, as they are useful.

We’ve scoured artisan markets, boutiques and online stores for products that make our hearts sing.  Products that offer something unique and special for the recipient. Nearly all of the products we’ve chosen for our boxes are sourced from small makers throughout Canada. As makers ourselves, we understand the effort and care that goes into each product, and we are thrilled to be able to support that.

In addition to our support of small makers, we also believe in eco-friendly natural products. Our own line of candles, as well as bath and body products are handmade with only the finest ingredients, including top grade essential oils and 100% plant-derived fragrances. Not a single product in the My Weekend is Booked line contains fragrance that is not truly natural.

We use eco-friendly packaging wherever possible, including biodegradable bubble wrap to protect our candles during shipping; recyclable packing paper; recyclable paper shred; biodegradable packing peanuts and recyclable glass jars for candles and bath salts.

 

MWB Candles & Bath and Body Products

A natural candle that smells good? Is that possible? That’s what we wondered when we began our quest to create soy candles that do not contain synthetic fragrances.

The bath and body industry has myriad options when it comes to natural products, but finding a truly natural candle is nearly impossible. We can’t even count the amount of times we’ve picked up a so called ‘all-natural’ candle only to find that it contains synthetic fragrances. Even though many candle companies claim to use essential oils in their candles, they are not required to disclose whether or not synthetic fragrances were blended with the essential oils.

After spending months experimenting with essential oils and natural plant-derived fragrance oils, we perfected recipes for truly natural candles that burn clean and smell incredible.

We exclusively use soy wax made in the USA with American-grown soy. Unlike many candle companies, we do not add paraffin to our candles.

Each of our candles is hand poured with love in small batches in our studio. We have worked with talented graphic designers to create whimsical, one-of-a-kind labels that are unlike any others on the market. 

The My Weekend is Booked line of bath and body products is also made with premium oils and free from synthetic ingredients. Christina has been making cold-processed soap for more than twenty years. Over the years, she’s perfected her formula to create the perfect bar of soap that premium essential oils and plant based fragrance. My Weekend is Booked soap is perfect for anyone who has sensitive skin, or has allergies to commercial soap.
