About Us

Hi, I'm Sarah, the creative force behind The Polite House— I make the handcrafted beeswax candles designed to ignite intention and inspire personal growth in your life.

My journey began as a young stay-at-home mom. I embraced the roles of wife and mother of two with open arms. As I navigated the joys and challenges of family life, I discovered a deep passion for creating and putting something of my own into the world.

Originally, The Polite House was a place for eco-home goods, but it underwent a hard and necessary transformation guided by my unwavering commitment to bring joy to the home. It was through this journey that I found myself drawn to the enchanting allure of beeswax—the soothing aroma, the gentle glow, and the profound sense of connection it evoked within me.

Driven by the essence of growth and intentionality, I made the bold decision to refocus The Polite House exclusively on handcrafted beeswax candles. Each candle became a vessel for transformation, inviting individuals to pause, reflect, and set their intentions. Aligning my passion for personal growth with the beauty of these candles has allowed me to feel more aligned with my business than ever before. 

For me, The Polite House is more than just a business; it's a reflection of my belief that there is beauty in the ordinary and the smallest habits can create the most fulfilling lives. With each candle I craft, I aim to inspire others to embrace life's journey, to seek growth, and to become the best versions of themselves.

Today, The Polite House stands as a testament to my unwavering commitment to personal growth, mindfulness, and the art of intentional living. Through my candles, I hope to continue inspiring individuals to illuminate their path and ignite their inner light, one flicker of intention at a time.
