MEET THE NOSE + HANDS BEHIND NOMAD

I have always loved - no, scratch that, ADORED - scent. From the time I was a child, I have been obsessed with all things scented. I started Nomad Wax Co. quite on accident in 2018 during a restless period in my life. With a corporate job that left me crabby, stressed and in tears more days than not, more stress in my personal life, and health issues exacerbated by endocrine disrupting chemicals (learn more about that here), I was a mess inside and out. I had given up many of the fragrance products I'd long adored, in an effort to calm my overstressed, inflamed body. I mixed my first Lavender + Cream candle in an attempt to replace my beloved lavender vanilla wall plugin with a safer, cleaner option and to soothe myself from my chaotic life. Making things with my hands has long been my respite.

A few months later - burnt out, broken and raw - I left the soul-crushing corporate job, and wondered, "what next?" With naive ambition, a single Lavender + Cream travel tin candle, and a boatload of ideas, I launched my online retail site in January 2019. I did my first pop-up market for Valentine's Day and I was hooked! What started in my spare bedroom in Omaha, Nebraska, soon became a pop-up retail space in Lincoln, Nebraska and expanded into wholesale products. We’ve now grown into a studio and retail showroom in the heart of central Omaha with stockists across the U.S.

I’ve created collections of candles, perfumes, and home scent meant to make your everyday moments feel special. With clean, non-toxic ingredients and most importantly, without nasty endocrine disrupting chemicals - you can smell amazing and feel good. I hope we can help you find a brief moment of awareness, enjoy a laugh or create a little poetry for your senses,
