Brooklyn Flavors' Story

Brooklyn Flavors Story picture

In 2003 I wanted to work from home to be with my children, so I built a website and opened a wholesale account with a well known candle manufacturer. They made beautiful candles but my customers complained about the scent not being strong when burned. I didn’t want to disappoint them any longer so in the fall of 2004  I decided to make my own candles, natural, sweet smelling and strong.  It worked, my customers loved them. My signature scent Red Passion (now known as Red Hook) became a huge success. The skincare products started because my children suffered with severe dry skin and I couldn’t find anything over the counter that would help.  I also wanted products that were made with natural ingredients that I knew had healing properties .

 In the summer of 2006  I decided to go a step further and make natural skin care products, that way I knew what was going in the products. Loyal customers, products with a personal touch and word of mouth is making Brooklyn Flavors a huge success. I use Shea Butter, Olive Oil, Almond Oil and all the other great oils that will soothe, moisturize and nourish your skin.

 Our mission is to create quality handmade products using natural ingredients while promoting a healthy approach to beauty and bath products as well as candles. We take great pride in our creations by making small batches to maintain the great quality our customers are used to having. We use organic and natural ingredients, sourced locally and from around the world. We hope you will enjoy the products we make for you.
