ABOUT US and our stuff...

Handcrafted, unique scents to fill your space inspired by the music that brings joy to our soul (hint: the Grateful Dead).

Who is the Grateful Merchant? Just a fun-loving pair of dead heads on a mission to make your life smell better - aka Chip - the super-supportive man of mystery (always behind the scenes); and Staci - the creative soul, maker, and lover of *all things that smell good* running the show. Nice to meet ya!

So why would you want to buy our stuff? Because we made them to make you SMILE, and FEEL GOOD - from the design to the way we create our fragrances to uplift & elevate your mood. Plus, we're all about transparency and believe honesty will get you... somewhere ;) So if you have about 45 seconds, we would like to share a few details about the stuff we make that smells good...

    • OUR CANDLES // vegan, small batch, ethically created and hand-poured. We use premium, non-GMO coconut/soy & hemp/soy blend waxes, lead-free cotton wicks and eco-friendly (FSC Certified) wood wicks for an ahhhmazing aroma and clean burn every time. Score!
    • OUR INCENSE // bamboo-derived activated charcoal sticks hand-dipped with our unique premium fragrance & essential oil blends. Double Score!
    • OUR REED DIFFUSERS // made with a non-toxic, VOC compliant base and doesn't contain any parabens or phthalates - fancy words for the 'funky' stuff that you don't need in your life. Triple Word Score!
    • OUR FRAGRANCES // uniquely crafted blends of high quality fragrance & essential oils - free from carcinogens, reproductive toxins, and other potentially hazardous junk often found in fragrance. Like we said - no funky stuff (parabens / phthalates) in any of our products that would harm you or the environment! Right On!
    • PACKAGING & MATERIALS // we're not perfect, but we do our best to be mindful of everything we use here at Grateful Merchant Co.: eco-friendly packaging/shipping & product materials that can be recycled, repurposed and reused is how we roll. Woo hoo!
    • Oh yeah - and did we mention that EVERYTHING smells great, too! "Alright, alright, alright!"

      And the most important part? We're soooo grateful. Grateful for YOU - your support - for the music that inspires us and the creativity that drives us. ✌🏻❤️⚡️
