LA-based Filipina entrepreneur unveils soy wax candle brand
At the onset of the pandemic, Jamlang-Tiongson belonged to a corporation, which was forced to close its doors. Now homebound, she turned to scented candles and diffusers to ease the stress brought about by the sudden unexpected situation.
“Fragrance played a big part of me now, not knowing when I could work again, not knowing when my kids can go back to school, always in a state of panic whenever we leave home because we might catch the dreaded virus,” she said. “I tried to do a lot of quiet ‘me time’ to relax. I would light candles—it instantly changes the mood in any area you are in.”
Thus in early 2021, Ryliv Home, named after her son Ryder and her daughter Olivia, started operations.
The initial series offered four sizes and over 10 scents, headlined by the bestselling Eucalyptus, French Lavender, Gardenia, Plumeria, and Black Oud.
The selections likewise include Sweet Pea, Citrus Flower, Coconut, Apple Cinnamon, Cashmere and Vanilla, Rosewater and Chamomile, Sandalwood, and Pumpkin Spice.
‘There are no shortcuts. It really takes time and patience. If you love what you are doing, you will always find a way to make it work.’
