I'm not just a dad, a husband, or a man; I'm a human being with a story.

After suffering from burnout, depression and then suicidal thoughts.

I am now on an entrepreneurial journey inspiring individuals to focus on what really makes you happy.

Allowing time for self-reflection leads to greater self-awareness.

Let me show you how…


But first... here's my story

My name is Ricki Takooree.

Back when I turned 18, I began noticing patchy bald spots on my head.

The diagnosis: Alopecia, brought on by depression.

Doctors suggested anti-depressants, but I was hesitant, knowing their impact on friends and family at the time.

That's when I decided to take a different path...

I'd retreat to my bedroom, switch off the lights, and light a candle.

As I gazed at the flame, I'd ponder my problems, seeking solutions.

After a while, ideas emerged, and I'd blow out the candle, ready to tackle those challenges head-on.

And it worked!

That experience inspired me to create something that could help others - BEMAN Candles.

BEMAN Candles don’t just stop at good aromatherapy smells; they have a purpose - to empower you.

Each candle reflects a topic for example purpose, gratitude, or self-worth, guiding you on a journey of self-reflection and journaling.

Simply scan the QR code, and a video on the chosen topic awaits you.

Then, immerse yourself in the reflection, paving the way for your personal growth.

It's all about you.

In today's fast-paced world, we often neglect our mental space, living on autopilot.

But BEMAN Candles encourage you to pause, connect with your inner self, and embrace your potential.

I built this business from where my battle with depression began - my childhood bedroom. But thanks to your support things are fast progressing.

I still feel this journey has just begun. I'm grateful for the people I've met and the inspiring stories shared with me.

My hope is that more of us find the courage to speak up and self-develop. 

Join me on this empowering adventure, and if you've already joined, thank you for being a part of it.
