- About Bonita Fierce
Spanish Moss is a flowering plant that grows on large trees that are native to Mexico, Bermuda, the Bahamas, Central America, South America, the Southern United States. Often associated with Southern Gothic imagery, Deep South culture and Mexican folklore, but like a shot of your favorite tequila ahumado o mezcal, this candle packs a punch. Fill your lungs with the earthy scent of sage with the deep character of oakmoss and amber. Go ahead and open that tequila bottle, you’ve worked hard all week, now just burn me and relax with the soothing orange, tonka bean, and lavender that balance out this candle.

Bonita Fierce Candles was founded by Melissa Gallardo in 2020, a few months into the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout her life, she always felt at a cultural crossroads being a Latina in the United States. Navigating language, culture, and heritage has always been a challenge - the feeling of what home meant, embracing heritage and connecting with la cultura. After graduating college she leaned into the Latina community online. There she felt at home but something was missing.
Burning candles was always her way of indulging in self-care but she realized the scents she grew up with weren't represented in the home fragrance industry. With that in mind, she set out to create Bonita Fierce Candles, a collection of candles dedicated to celebrating heritage and home. Done in an elevated way with clean ingredients and eco-friendly packaging as our way of sharing our cultura with the rest of the world.
