The name “MiGi” (Mee-Jee) comes from a combination of the names of my beautiful daughters, Milah and Giannah and “Cera” is the Spanish word for “wax.” Our family name reflects the motivation and reason behind the business.

My family is of Mexican descent, and, living in the excitingly diverse area of California known as the Bay Area, I decided to incorporate my heritage into my candles in the form of scents and their Spanish names. This resulted in a unique scent, candle, and aesthetic.

It's always my #1 priority to bring A++ quality products to my customers and I am always striving to improve. I want to share memories through smells and one day give you something that will trigger beautiful and fond memories of friends, family, and moments.

Our coconut wax candles and all natural skin care are hand made with only top quality ingredients. Migi products are vegan, non toxic and eco friendly safe ingredients that I stand by and personally use.

Our instructor Marcelina was amazing! Her love for what she teaches shines through her classes!
She was able to envision a setup great for our space.
The materials were of high quality and the candle wax was of coconut oil, so your end product lasts longer than generic candles.
We are looking forward to working with her again in the new year!

Candle Making class review by Savannah Seruby - San Jose

Tempest Early Dec 2022

We have had Marcelina host 2 of our company's events with a candle making class for roughly 25 each session and both times have been AMAZING! Marcelina is friendly, easy to communicate with and so knowledgable/thoughtful in the candle making process. I can't wait to have her come back to hold another candle making class with our employees!

The instructor is thorough, and our class mentioned they appreciated her guiding questions instead of just being told all the information and facts. It was so helpful that she could travel to our event location and tailor the experience to us. We enjoyed the presentation and the materials she provided.

We could have been given more detailed instructions on how to put together the candle: where exactly to place the label and what angle to place the wick on (horizontal to the label). It was hard to hear since we had a large group (15-18), so repeating the instructions a lot would be better next time.

The quality of the candle is lovely (vegan and eco friendly) and the scents that she had pre-mixed were beautiful-smelling. Each participant had a jar, wick, and wick trimmer to take home (we added that purchase on to the experience). She printed labels for us which was a great touch, though the label appears a bit grainy on our end.

She spent a lot of time setting up and trying to customize to our every need. For a corporate class, it was good value for the money. Thanks so much!
