About Us


Empowering eco-conscious living, our mission is to illuminate homes with sustainable and environmentally-friendly candles. We strive to create a warm, inviting atmosphere while minimizing our ecological footprint through the use of renewable materials, responsible sourcing, and eco-friendly packaging. Together, let's light up spaces with candles that not only soothe the soul but also nurture the planet.

All candles are made with U.S grown soy beans & wooden wicks sourced from sustainable forests and approved by the Forest Stewardship Council Certified Mills (FSC). We pride ourselves in making the most natural and sustainably sourced candles.
Each product is hand poured in small micro-batches.



My name is Amy PaChia Yang (she/her), and in 2018, I founded PaChia Blooms. Married for six years, I am a proud wife and a loving mom to two fur babies—a cat and a dog. I am a St. Cloud State Husky alum and I balance my time as a program manager at one of Minnesota's largest non-profit organization. The inspiration behind the name 'PaChia Blooms' stems from my middle name, PaChia, which translates to 'blooming flower' in Hmong.


While in college, I frequently lit candles to enhance focus and relaxation, but I began experiencing headaches. Investigating, I learned about the potential harm from certain candle waxes and fragrance oils. Transitioning to soy candles improved matters, yet the scent distribution remained a challenge. Motivated to find a solution, I began crafting my own candles. After a year of experimentation, PaChia Blooms was born. I take pride in offering 100% soy candles with pure scents, ensuring a safe and delightful experience for both humans and pets.


Obtained from soybeans, soy wax stands as a superior alternative to paraffin wax, derived from petroleum oil. Highlighted below are the key distinctions between paraffin and soy waxes, as outlined by CANDLESCIENCE.COM

  • Easy to use
  • Non-toxic, colorless, clean-burning fuel
  • Has a clearly defined large crystal structure and a melting point usually between 120-160°F
  • Tends to be hard and brittle
  • Soy Wax
  • Discovered in 1991 as an alternative to paraffin wax
  • Natural, renewable, non-toxic and biodegradable

We exclusively acquire premium fragrance oils, utilizing a blend of natural essential oils and synthetic aroma chemicals of the highest quality. Our oils remain undiluted, ensuring a robust and concentrated aroma that persists throughout the candle-burning experience. Embracing the concept of 'clean scents,' we meticulously eliminate the listed ingredients below for a pure and untarnished fragrance.
  • Carcinogens: These are materials known or thought to cause cancer. 
  • Mutagens: Materials that change the DNA of a cell, harming the cell and causing diseases like cancer. 
  • Reproductive toxins: Toxins that adversely affect reproductive organs and increase the risk of birth defects. 
  • Organ toxins: These are toxins that can cause adverse effects or disease within specific bodily organs. 
  • Acute toxins: Toxins that can cause adverse effects from a single exposure. Generally, this would be accidental exposure like spillage or ingestion.

Introduced in 2001 to replicate the ambiance of a fireplace, wood wicks offer distinct advantages over cotton wicks. In comparison:

  • Wooden wicks facilitate a quicker formation of a melt pool, ensuring a rapid and excellent hot throw.
  • They produce an enchanting crackling sound during burning.
  • Wooden wicks exhibit minimal mushrooming, with little carbon buildup, debris, or sooting.
All wood used for our wicks is sourced from Forest Stewardship Council Certified Mills (FSC) in the USA, our Wooden Wicks are a sustainable, natural, and eco-friendly.
Numerous states impose limitations on the VOC percentage in reed diffusers due to concerns about Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which can be harmful and contribute to indoor air quality issues. Our reed diffuser is toxic-free and compliant with VOC regulations in all 50 states, ensuring that your reed diffusers meet indoor air quality standards. Additionally, our product is free from DPG (dipropylene glycol).
