Voluspa was hand-crafted with love by artisans and entrepreneurs Traci and Troy Arntsen in their California kitchen nearly 20 years ago. Rising from burned pots, homemade waxes and intoxicating perfume oils, Voluspa is today a reflection of the art, beauty and culture that inspire its founders in their travels.
Traci’s cultivated passion for botany and essential oils combined with her fragrance expertise, allows Voluspa to blend proprietary scents using the finest ingredients sustainably sourced from the farthest reaches of the world. Troy’s passion for travel, business savvy – and for never overlooking the right opportunity – have positioned Voluspa as one of the premier purveyors of luxury scented candles and body products in the world today. The name Voluspa originates in an ancient Norse poem about the creation of the world from chaos. And as the chaos in the kitchen signified, great beauty is often born of great passion.
“Voluspa is true handcrafted California luxury. Exquisite scents, cool, colorful, reusable containers that we design in house and perfectly formulated candles are the backbone of who we are. Our ingredients are rare, sourced globally and fine fragrance quality. Each ingredient contributing to an exclusively unique fragrance that is far above and beyond that of typical department store candles.
That is why we have such a cult and celebrity following for our scents. Voluspa has never sold a candle we didn't make ourselves. This is a fact that we have always taken pride in, and not something that many other brands can claim.”
–Traci and Troy Arntsen, Creators of Voluspa
