About Us

It all started in the sandbox in the quiet, but growing suburbs of Chicago, and that's where it remains.

Remember those long summer days of childhood spent creating imaginary worlds in the sandbox and selling lemonade in front of the house to fund trips to the candy store? If we go back to the very beginning of Creatively Intentional, it all started in the sandbox. I'm Mary Ylisela, Founder and Head Creator, and I've been imagining and creating all of my life.

As an adult I began to turn creative hobbies into business ideas. Some were successful, others not so much. But all of those ideas lead to the creation of Creatively Intentional.

Here we believe that if you can think of it, you can create it. We also believe that dreams come true and a steady dose of encouragement and motivation can help in the achievement of those dreams.

I've had a lifelong passion for helping others feel good about themselves, their surroundings and the goals they've set. I hope that our products and customer service will play a role in motivating, relaxing, focusing and rejuvenating you.

Here are a few of the things that motivate and inspire me...my family and my furry babies.

             

Our Commitment to You & the Environment

At Creatively Intentional, making a high quality, natural, cruelty-free product is important. We believe that everyone can benefit from a little help with self-care. But it should never be at the risk of your well-being, your family's well-being or at the detriment of our environment.

Our products are packaged in recyclable or reusable materials. We opt for natural, plant-based, toxin-free ingredients for our scented soy candles and wax melts as well as for our balms, creams and salves.

 

SOY CANDLES & MELTS

To benefit you and our environment we are committed to our small batch, handmade, hand-poured process that creates:

  • All-natural, 100% scented soy candles infused with plant-based essential oils
  • Clean burning with no petrol soot, and free from toxins, carcinogens and pollutants
  • Dye-free, phlatate-free
  • Biodegradable and sustainable
  • Hand-poured and hand-packaged  
  • Cotton wicks are zinc-free and lead-free

Our scented soy wax products come in a six-pack of wax melts for your wax warmer, or in a half-pint or pint-sized reusable canning jar. New soy candle collections are introduced regularly, so be sure to check back for our latest collections! Enjoy shopping with us online or visit us at a local craft show.
