Waxx Essentials was founded in 2020 by BFF’s Tyler Smith and Alea Shipp. The two met on the campus of Morgan State University in 2015. Shipp was pursuing a degree in Biology while Smith was pursuing a degree in Communications/Multi-Platform Productions. Despite being different in many ways, the two found commonality in having fun and enjoying the finer things in life. 


After successfully obtaining their degrees during a global pandemic, they were looking for ways to unwind and relax. Unable to find a candle that provided an amazing scent-throw and appealing aesthetic, the dynamic duo started a quest to create their own. They leveraged their backgrounds in science and communications to provide the perfect balance of innovation and creative branding; as a result, Waxx Essentials was born.
