Hello and welcome to my shop! I started making candles a few years ago and it actually happened by accident. I was designing jewelry at the time and went to a local, fairly large craft show as a spectator on a mission to find handmade candles! To me, there is nothing is more soothing than walking into a home that smells wonderful! Much to my dismay, there was not one candle maker at this particular show!
As soon as I got home I packed up my beads, put them in storage and started my candle making research! It was a true learning experience. Many people had asked me how hard it could be to melt wax and pour it into a jar but I soon learned that there was a lot more to it than that! I am a perfectionist and I will never sell something that I would not use myself.
How many times have you purchased a candle only to get home and find out that it does not smell the same when it is burning....or that it doesn't…

How many times have you purchased a candle only to get home and find out that it does not smell the same when it is burning....or that it doesn't smell at all? It has happened to me on many occasion which is why I am very particular about my products. My family and friends will be the first to try out a new scent and if it passes their test I will I will make it available for purchase.
Some candles have a very strong "cold throw" which is basically how strong it smells without being lit. Not all of these will smell as strong when lit (hot throw) and this leads to a customer's disappointment in the product. Some candles, on the other hand, will have a faint "cold throw" and may have a stronger "hot throw." This is why it is so important for me to have my family and friends' opinions before I offer a particular scent and this is why I believe you will enjoy my candles.
I offer many more scents than pictured so if there is one particular scent you cannot live without, please contact me and I may actually have it in my inventory!
