My name is Stefanie Alexia and I am the creator and founder of Touch of August, a self-care and wellness brand, created to help you cater to yourself. The goal of Touch of August is to provide quality products and services to help you create and perfect your self-care routine and wellness practices by focusing on human senes.
Audre Lorde said it best
“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation.”
A little bit about me, I was born in August (Leo) hence the brand name. I am a busy body, I play hard and work harder. Sometimes I find myself saying yes when I should say no, and no when I should say yes. All in all, I love to be involved and of service to others and I believe we all can relate to that. Yet, the seldom moments (pre-COVID-19) when I would have an evening to myself, it would always include a candle. Self-care comes in many forms and looks different for everyone. But the one thing that holds true is that self-care is the intentional act to cater to your individual needs.
When purchasing one of my candles, you’ll be receiving a soy wax candle with a cotton wick, infused with fragrance and essential oils. These candles are hand-poured into clear glass jars with a gold, metal lid. Plus, it is always vegan, cruelty-free, and phthalate-free.
