Rachel Andrews' Profile

About

Hi, I'm Rachel the candlemaker, sewer and all other things of Sephyrus.

My mother taught me how to make candles when I was 8 and I've been doing it ever since! I love smelly things and making everything I can think of. Over the years I have experimented with soy, parrafin and palm wax and have found palm wax to be the best choice for candles and tarts. It holds the most scent, looks beautiful and releases it's scent hot or cold.

My Grandmother taught me how to embroider and sew when I was young. I come from a very crafty family. I went to school for Fashion Design so hopefully some clothes of mine will make their way to Etsy.

I have made candles for years and had a .com website until I found etsy.

Here's what my customers have to say about Sephyrus Candles:

Hello Rachel,
The candles are wonderful! I do love them. Even my 15 year old son loves them! :)

Thanks,
Lisa


Hey Rachel!
I'm really glad I stumbled onto your site...My roommate is allergic to incense which I love to burn, so I've been working with Yankee candles for the most part...but yours are far superior (you were right about the palm oil!)

Hi Rachel ...

I just wanted to tell you I shipped the Sandalwoods Friday. And also, I love your candles. The crystallized palm wax is beautiful to look at after the candle has cooled. I've never seen anything like it. The snozzberry is filling my house with the heavenly scent and even the kitties seem to be enjoying the atmosphere it brings. Not to mention me ... thank you so much!

Namaste!

Annie
