Something Smells Scrumptious: Scented Candles by Dr. Sonya Malani

2020 Women In Optometry holiday gift guide

This story was originally published in our Women In Optometry 2020 Gift Guide.

Sonya Malani, OD, of Madison Eyes in Madison, New Jersey, loves the opportunity that optometry has given her to work in the healthcare field and achieve a fulfilling work/life balance. “Being an optometrist has allowed me the ability to take care of my patients without having to sacrifice other aspects of my life like family and personal time,” she says.

She started Scrumptious Wicks in 2017 as a creative outlet. “After a day of patients, I find it very relaxing to create new scents and let my creativity run wild,” she says. “Making candles has been incredibly therapeutic for me.”

FAVORITE CREATION: “Indian Monsoon is my best selling candle scent, and it’s also one of my personal favorites. As a kid, my mom would take me to visit family in India during the summer, which is monsoon season there. I distinctly remember the calming, dewy scent of fresh rain on summer-parched earth, and this fragrance is an ode to that.”
