Candle store Blue Pearl opens on Dixie Highway

Kim Rowe first started making and selling homemade, scented candles online with her 14-year-old adopted daughter Terriaanna Rowe in March 2020. In December, Rowe opened a brick-and-mortar store called Blue Pearl selling candles and wax melts at 17538 Dixie Highway in Homewood.

To make the candles, Rowe and her daughter heat soy wax, add coloring and scents, and pour it into molds . . .
