OUR STORY

I created Fair Winds to share memories of my life in the Navy.

I know what you are thinking…
Why the heck would I want to do that?

Well…since I am a Navy Veteran and have been stationed all over the country with my husband the submariner for the past 20 years, I have a unique collection of experiences to pull from. Every few years, we must pick up our lives and make a new home wherever my husband is needed. We have to find new friends and new communities to call our own, all while striving to keep a connection to the people and places we left behind through the years. It’s a lot, but I know I am one of many people who this is our normal life for years. The military family is different from the average.

It has its moments that are trying, but overall, I can’t imagine a better way to spend the past 20 years of my life. I want to celebrate all of it, so I blended some scents that do just that! Fair Winds Candle Company provides high quality candles made of coconut wax and unique fragrances to celebrate all aspects of the military life helping ease the transitions from one home to the next through smells that are familiar and comforting. My goal is to help you make ‘scents’ of Navy life.
