About Us



I'm Ashley Mack. My husband, Richard, and I are the owners of LAV LUX. (Here's more about our personal story: https://www.essence.com/love/weddings/bridal-bliss-ashley-richard-charleston-wedding/  ) Aside from our professional careers, we're creatives. I'm a selfcare FANATIC and my husband is a great woodworker, together we hope to use our talent to inspire others to care for themselves and their spaces.


By definition selfcare is the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one's own health.

We created LAV LUX to remind people to take the best care of themselves (and the spaces they inhabit) possible. We hope our customers will add our goods to their selfcare routines and spaces. And for those who don't have a routine yet, we hope goods from our store will serve as a reminder to be good to and take care of themselves. 

Our candles are a blend of apricot and coconut wax. This creamy white wax is all natural, vegan, gluten free, toxin free, paraben free, phthalate free, and responsibly sourced. Our fragrances are phthalate free and paraben free, products made this way have been proven to reduce health risks and be better for the immune system. We use wooden wicks because of their ability to create a fast melt pool which ensures a greater scent throw for the candles. In addition, wooden wicks create very little carbon build-up, sooting, and debris. 

Our candles are designed not to take up space in your home decor. While they quietly crackle and have high scent throw, they have a clean minimal appearance. 

We understand that a major part of selfcare is having an environment that supports your mental and physical wellness. With our space collection we have created and curated a number of items we believe are essential to the home. 

All candles, bath, and wooden items are handmade in Austin, TX.
