Join me on my herbal journey and my candle making process!

About

Redwood Coast Mercantile was born from the salty sea air of the Pacific Coast, and the mossy earth floor of redwood groves.

My name is Lindsey and I am a candle maker, mother, gardener, felter, and I enjoy seasonal living. I work on farms, I take care of my toddler, and focus on living a sustainable lifestyle while reducing my carbon footprint.  In my early twenties, I was insecure and confused about my life as I sat next to a computer working 8 hour days. I had been doing this since high school and thought this is what everyone is supposed to do as a career if you wanted to make money and be happy. When my mental and physical health started to decline, I decided it was time for a change, a big change. I quit my job and began working at community gardens, vegetable farms and chicken hatcheries. This is what life was supposed to feel like! During this time I researched everything about sustainable living and regenerative agriculture. It all came together.

Shortly after I became pregnant. I gave birth to my son in January 2018 and have spent this time paving a new path as I jumped right in to motherhood. My husband and I are working on our dream of living in a small cozy home with acreage to own our own farm, raise our children on, and to live a happy life in the short time we are here on this planet.
