Our Story & Philosophy
Born of an immediate resiliency plan, Black Phlox was created by a nurse & veteran who was searching for a socially distanced way to lift spirits in an everchanging world of chaos. Lovingly known as RKP, Rica Kendrick-Palmer, is known for her compassion & warm smile. Sadly, the pandemic attempted to steal the entire world's resolve, including hers. During a quest for how to keep people together AND apart, Black Phlox aims to make hearts smile by allowing participants to create their own- next version of themselves in a personalized and intimate candle making experience.
