About Us


My name is Kayla and I’m the owner of Sugar & Sand Candle Company. I run the business with my partner, Chazz. I’m 5th generation, born and raised in Key West, FL. I was raised on the boat and spend most of my time in the ocean. I have a 10 year old daughter and I’m a registered nurse as well. I started pouring my first candles in May 2023. I had the vision to create authentic candles that had their own unique Key West charm. I wanted to show people the beauty of Key West through artistic designs and scents that will make you feel like you are sitting on the sandbar listening to the ocean around you 🌊

I began selling my candles in August 2023 and from there things have grown very quickly. I am so grateful to be able to live this life!

All of our candles are hand poured by myself and Chazz. We custom create every scent, every design, and every label. We use 100% soy wax with phthalate free fragrance oils making our candles non toxic with a slow, clean burn.

We are beginning to branch out, with our dream being to turn this company into a lifestyle brand. Follow along on our journey with us 🤍💙
