Mångata Grove, formerly Wicked Wicc 'N Candles, was created after
several months of brainstorming, talking, researching, and planning in late
2012 and became a reality in 2013. The plan was to create a product that
contained both all natural wax and essential oils or plant extracts into a
product that could enjoyed by individuals that have the same allergies
and/or lung issues as Julia. The choice for our products was both simple
and logical. A great quality, natural product that could be used
for more than just a candle. We have also added wood burning crafts,
dried herbs, salts, and seeds.
New ideas are always churning so stay turned for what could come next!
I love to travel and learn new things. I am
a widow, mother, animal
lover (I have an Alusky [Alaskan
Malamute/Siberian Husky mix] -
Togo, Rottweiler - Thor, and
Schipperke - Captain's Kentucky Sundown
aka Naykidd), photographer, cook,
garden, and overall lover of the
outdoors and nature.
I am the candle maker, owner, artisan,
researcher, and do social media and website updates.
I am also the artisan behind the other products we have and I put a great
deal of love and energy it to every product. It was with the support
of Fred, that made this brainstorming idea a reality.
It is with a heavy heart and
extreme sadness that I, Julia, share this with
Fred's light and energy will be missed as he
passed to the Summerlands on April 2, 2016
at 3:15pm. There are no words that can
express how deeply saddened the girls and
I truly are. He always came off
as rough around the edges, but he also was
one heck of a salesman!
While we miss him at events, he is never far! Fred will always be apart of
this and be forever present in all that we do.

** Fred's spirit is with us and travels with us to events in the form
of a teddy-bear wearing the Wallace tartan kilt. **
Savannah and Alexanderia:
You will also see Frank traveling with us now! He has
been helping with the events and the candles since
2017. He helps with set up, tear down, and will man the
booth if Julia needs to step away for a few minutes.
Frank has also been helping with the creating of the
candles and the introduction of some of the newer
products that have happened in 2018. He has been a
wonderful assistant and 'candle chef'! Frank and Julia
have known each other and been friends since
2003 and life enabled their paths to cross again and they have
been together since March 2017.
