WHY SUNDAY FOREVER?
It's Sunday afternoon, sometime past 4 o’clock. Your bed is a blissful reprieve and quite possibly the warmest, most comfortable place on the earth. Time is irrelevant and priorities are safeguarded somewhere in the back of your mind, stored for later.
Around 5 o'clock, though, something starts to shift. Imperceptibly at first, but then all at once, relaxed ‘weekend you’ begins to morph into anxious ‘weekday you’.
The imminent unknown of the week ahead begin to dawn on you and you wish that you could somehow hold this Sunday stillness in the palm of your hands.
Well, that’s what Ashli Stockton has set out to do.
Her brand, Sunday Forever, was created with a vision to encompass treasured self-care rituals, good vibes, and effortless elegance—“Sunday Forever was born out of my love of comfort, leisure, and nice things. I wanted to create a little dream world.”
Simple red string bracelets to ward off bad energy, and instill a symbol of faith in all who wear them; Intricate and beautiful kimonos inspired by Ashli’s many trips to Japan; and delicately scented candles, modernly packaged to complement every design style, are only a few of the indulging and pampering products that fill Sunday Forever’s shop pages.
“Even when it seems impossible to take time for yourself, it’s necessary—It’s easy to become isolated and consumed in work and life because the to-do list can seem endless. Taking care of yourself and your most important relationships will help to keep your soul properly nourished.”
Sunday Forever has made it simpler to identify personally and emotionally to the products you use, and to endlessly experience the Sundays when the world feels quiet, soft and anew.

Where are your products made?
All Sunday Forever products are made in the USA.
What sizes do your kimonos come in?
currently we make one size but are working to size up. by nature, kimonos are sized generously but we are in the process of developing an extended size.
wHAT ARE YOUR CANDLES MADE OF?
we use only 100% cotton wicks and use high quality COCONUT AND SOY BLEND wax FOR a clean, slow burn.
we recently moved our production to a massachusetts based company. WE CHOSE THIS PARTICULAR MANUFACTURER NOT ONLY BECAUSE OF THEIR HIGH QUALITY HAND-POURED AND HAND LABELED PRODUCTION METHODS BUT ALSO BECAUSE THEY ARE MISSION BASED - THEY SUPPORT FEMALE REFUGEES AND ARTISANS THROUGH CANDLE MAKING, allowing them to earn a fair lving wage.
what is a sunday forever candle's estimated burn time?
for our 9oz candles, 40 hours. for our 11oz candles, 60 hours.
my bracelet broke, what do i do?
we hand make each and every bracelets, so from time to time a knot may not be tied perfectly or tight enough. if you're having trouble with your bracelet send us an email and we'll help you out. if it's been a few months and it breaks - that means it's probably diong its job of protecting you and it's time for a new one!
do i need to take off my jewelry for showering, swimming etc?
this is a very personal choice. we choose to never take off our bracelets, necklaces or anklets. They can withstand quite a bit of wear and tear but if you're concerned about them turning a bit or getting a dirty you should probably remove them. we like them to look worn and broken in, we like character :)
Are fragrances safe ?
Yes, fragrance products are safe. The Fragrance Industry worldwide is regulated by The International Fragrance Association (IFRA), an organization created in 1973. IFRA establishes the standards for fragrance materials, limiting or prohibiting the use of ingredients, based on the findings of The Research Institute for Fragrance Materials, Inc. (RIFM). RIFM is a non profit corporation created in 1966 and stands as the international scientific authority for the safe use of fragrance materials. All our products are formulated to comply with the most recent IFRA standards and regulations. IFRA certificates for our products are available upon request at thesocietyofscent.info.
What about allergies?
Like certain food ingredients, fragrance materials may trigger allergies even when they come directly from nature. In fact, the highest number of potential allergens are in essential oils! It is practically impossible to create an allergen-free/100% natural fragrance. There is a lot of misinformation on this subject, and the bottom line is that if you notice rashes on your skin when using a particular fragrance, you should either spray it exclusively on your clothes or stop using it. If the allergic reaction is respiratory, common sense dictates that you stop using the product, and maybe even stop wearing any type of fragrance, as there is no good way to anticipate which fragrance is going to trigger an allergy or not. The unfortunate truth is that you being allergic is not necessarily a problem with the way the product is designed or the quality and safety of its materials. To dive deeper into the subject of Safety as it pertains to allergies, The European Commission has made it mandatory for any brand sold in Europe to label 26 recognized allergens present in a scented product and although we sell our brands in the US only, we have decided to follow this policy and label every product in the SO SCENT° line accordingly.
