About Us

Promoting overall wellness through the light of Christ.

3 John 1:2 - Dear friend, I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit. (NLT)


Well Lit Candles seeks to help others achieve their desired level of wellness through the calming of a lit candle and spiritual inspiration. We believe candles have many therapeutic aspects to them that help bring peace to one's environment. We also know that with constant communion with the Prince of Peace, we can always experience true tranquility. As such, each of our products will always refer to a person, story, or specific scripture in the Bible to give our customers an intentional, spiritual thought they can meditate on when lighting their candles.


The name Well Lit takes on three different meanings:

  1. The most obvious is that every candle lover respects a candle that is well lit.

  2. When separating the two words, we have well and lit. Well is a reflection of the mission of the business to always seek wellness for the mind, body, and soul. Lit is a reflection of the light of Christ, the light of the world.

  3. Putting the words back together, we essentially connect our wellness to the light of Jesus. With Him as our source, we can be assured of the longevity of our health and wellness.

Well Lit offers a variety of candles throughout the year, but we will always sell our flagship collection: Fruit of the Spirit. Check out the shop to find out more details about this and other candles!​

Be blessed!!

Meet our Founder

As with many small businesses in 2020, Well Lit Candles was born during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our founder, Monica Peynado, was looking for a way to maintain her mental and spiritual wellness as so many unprecedented events were happening in such a small period of time. Her love for scented candles and a rejuvenated spiritual walk with God led her to start her own candle business. She wants to share with others the newfound wellness she has found during this stressful time through her candle-making and intentional time with God.

"As a business, we hope to help others achieve their desired level of wellness through the calmness of a lit candle and spiritual inspiration." -- Peynado

Peynado was born and raised in Houston, Texas. She holds a Bachelor's of Science in Electrical Engineering from Howard University and a Master's of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Texas A&M University. She has been a Girl Scout troop leader since 2012 and a mentor with Aya Inc. since 2020. She loves to travel, binge-watch 90s-00s shows, and constantly work to give her best self to others.
