Hello! I’m Lymarie & I’m the founder of Nokomis Home Fragrance.
Like many, after I got married I dreamed of starting a family. Sounds easy right? After 5 years of trying we made the decision to seek help.
I’ll admit I had no clue how involved, how long & how emotional the process would be. 2 years of doctors visits, being poked & prodded, giving myself injections despite my fear of needles, having set backs, surgeries & failures. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
But as they say - Anything worth doing is never easy. And it was so worth it! My husband & I were blessed with a baby girl. And suddenly everything I went through - the late nights crying, the anger & frustration just melted away the second I laid eyes on my daughter.
So why am I telling you this? Well my daughters name is Nokomis. And this company was started for her. The second I found out I was pregnant I began my entrepreneurial journey.
I wanted to start a business that would allow me the freedom to watch my miracle baby grow up. I didn’t want to miss a single milestone, birthday or step.
I also wanted to create a business that I could be proud of - one that would give back both to Mother Nature & to other struggling couples. I focused on sustainable ingredients & recycled materials, making sure everything we made was ethical & cruelty free.
I’m very proud of our product- a truly sustainable, eco friendly luxury candle.
With custom blended clean fragrances & wooden wicks - our candles are a beautiful scent experience. And to really give back to Mother Nature- we will also plant 1 tree for every purchase through our partnership with OneTreePlanted.
But that wasn’t enough. Not a day goes by that I don’t thank God for our little girl. And I know so many couples are still not only struggling emotionally but financially too. IVF is a very expensive process. That’s why we’re launching 2 special edition candles called Hope and Dream. A portion of the proceeds from these candles will benefit @hopeforfertility - a non profit organization that awards grants to couples seeking IVF treatment.
Being in business isn’t just about making money- it’s about making an impact.
A portion of the proceeds from our charity collection will go directly to Hope For Fertility Foundation! Please consider a donation and help make someone’s dream of parenthood a reality!
