When Hudson Candle founder Kristin D'Aliso was diagnosed multiple autoimmune diseases six years ago, she found solace and ritual in lighting candles and taking long baths to help ease the pain on her most challenging days. This was the spark to create a line of candles inspiring hope and relief. As Kristin is more sensitive than others to scents, her fierce dedication to find the purest ingredients led her to hand pouring natural wax candles in her Fishkill, New York studio and creating proprietary essential oil blends. A native New Yorker, she named her company out of local pride of where she was born, raised and where she now lives and raises her own family.

Maker, Kristin - founder / healer / mother / explorer and most of all fighter and philosopher who instead of letting the sudden onset of an unpredictable condition stop her from moving forward, she created a remarkable product line as an act of resistance against it.
