Hello, Nice to meet you! My name is Melissa.

EVIL EYE SANCTUARY’S story begins along with our founder’s journey. When searching for a fresh outlook on life, I unearthed a passion for crystals, transcendental meditation, and becoming a true believer in the word meliorism which is the belief that the world can be made better by human effort. During this personal transformation, I set out to create a line that would increase positivity through products featuring symbols of protection and peace. The goal is to ward off all negative energy that has been brought to us by the stress of everyday life.
Emerging from this passion, Evil Eye Sanctuary opened its doors selling handcrafted candles. Every EVIL EYE SANCTUARY product has been created with the belief that we can ward off any negative energy. Handcrafted using 100% natural, American, soy wax and high-quality non-toxic oils. Today, I’ve expanded our collections to offer crystals, sage burners, Milagros wall decor and shortly plan to increase our ranges further.
Supplying our customers with everything they need to begin their explorations, starting this journey with only one goal: giving hope and positivity to our customers. Our goal is to foster these values today and continue to grow as a community. Amongst these values, our customer care remains at our core. We strive to offer the most dedicated support and care to all our customers.
Handcrafting our pieces with love, thoughtfulness, and the tools to surround yourself with positive energy. Redefining the definition of Modern Spirituality, utilizing these tools to envision your inner path and the essence of your being.
EVIL EYE SANCTUARY strives to adapt to the planet we call home, because of this, we’re always looking for new and innovative ways to be more eco-friendly. Right now, we urge our customers to upcycle our candle jars or return them to us for savings off their next order. Remember that my favorite word is Meliorism, so let’s unite to create, protect and bring positivity to our world.
