Welcome to ZenaMoon.com! We’re so glad you’re here…
I'm Jenn Balliett, ‘Chief Executive Candlemaker’ and owner of Zena Moon. We are a small but growing company located in the seaside town of Norwalk, Connecticut.
The Zena Moon Story (So Far)
Zena Moon was founded in 1999 by the inspiring Carla Blazek. Carla created this enchanted, little company to help others honor exactly who they are and where they are, on their journey through life. Carla and I met in the Spring of 2014 at a time when we were each determining our next steps in our own journeys. We were both seeking to make some changes in our lives and as fate would have it, the stars aligned over our new found friendship and Zena Moon was passed from Carla’s loving heart and hands into mine.
Being the new owner of Zena Moon has changed my life and that of my family’s in so many ways. It allows me a creative outlet that fills my soul, while providing a unique and special product for my loyal customers. And my three kiddies get to have their mom at home with them during these busy and impressionable years, when they need me the most. As a family, we are so grateful—for Zena Moon and for you.
A Little About Me
I've always been a candle lover and the first time I received a set of Zena Moon candles as a gift from a friend, I knew that there was something absolutely magical about them. I even remember not wanting to burn them—they were too special! Little did I know back then that one day I’d be creating them myself from my very own studio.
When I’m not pouring candles or packing and shipping these little gems to your doorstep, you can find me training for my next marathon or cheering from the bleachers at one of my kids’ games. I’m the proud mom of 3 amazing kids and partner to the love of my life—Dan. I’m so grateful for all their love and support when it comes to my business. I’m a lucky girl, for sure.
A Little History
Zena Moon has such an interesting and fun backstory. First—the name. Because so many people ask…
žena (zhay-na): means woman in Czech (Carla’s heritage)
moon: honors the power, cycles and light reflected throughout our lives.
As the new owner, it was important to me to keep this beautiful name. The meaning behind it is a large part of her (the company’s) personality.
Zena Moon candles have had their share of the spotlight too! One of the very first orders was given to Oprah as a gift from one of her closest friends. As a result, Oprah personally chose Zena Moon candles for her Live Your Best Life Tour, along with a mention in People magazine. Bestselling author SARK has recommended Zena Moon candles in her monthly e-letter. And O Magazine columnist and author extraordinaire Martha Beck gives Zena Moon candles to everyone who completes her Life Coach Training program.
Carla created a company that symbolizes light, love, and inspiration and I’m so honored to lead Zena Moon into the future—I have big shoes to fill as I carry on the traditions that Carla started and introduce some new ones as well. I hope to continue working with all of our current customers and to meet many new ones, too.
The Human Touch
Our lightly scented candles are made by hand from start to finish, as are most of the products in our gift sets. I believe in quality vs. quantity and am dedicated to upholding the personality and deeper meaning that only hand-crafted items can offer. Our products are created prayerfully, with only pure enjoyment. We love what we do and I believe that shows in every candle we ship.
