Gretchen is a Certified Massage Therapist as well as a candlemaker. Helping you to relax and find yourself is her focus. She understands the benefits of massage to both the mind and the body and is very passionate about helping others feel their very best through massage. She has a way of intuitively utilizing her natural gift to create healing energy. And candlemaking has become another way to extend her healing reach.

Mattie Girl candles are made with pure soy wax derived from American grown soy beans. Using only cotton braided wicks that are both lead and zinc free, as well as premium grade fragrance oils and essential oils. The candles contain no dyes or colorants of any kind, creating a clean and environmentally friendly burn. Candles are poured into reusable 8 ounce glass mason jars.

I live in Duluth with my husband Chris, and in my spare time, enjoy camping, hiking, travel, wine and cooking.
