Hello! We're Meag & Ben.

Meag and Ben Poirier have been exploring creative pursuits for the last several years from tiny home building to website design and portrait photography. They relocated to Gorham, New Hampshire in 2020.

As avid hikers and trail runners drawn back to Gorham’s trails, they learned to make balsam and spruce soy candles to bring the “White Mountains” fragrance inside the home too.

They fell in love with the creative process and making sure the candles were thoughtfully made with clean ingredients. After two years of testing other fragrance blends and selling small batches to friends, River and Stone was made official in 2023!

They now have outdoor, apothecary, and café-inspired fragrance lines that rotate seasonally. The pair appear at local farms markets, local stores, and an online shop
