About

Handmade Design Candles - Shaped Carved and Painted... OOAK candles to any occasion!

It started with a kit...
And was the beggining of a long affair!

I've always liked candles, the flickering flames and the soft scents, but the passion to create them was born only after buying a candle making kit to make Christmas gifts for friends and family. This was back in 2006.

Candlemaking quickly became a hobby and I used to offer my creations as gifts. In 2010, during a period of unemployment, it became a business idea and an Etsy shop was open.
After some ups and downs I reopen the shop in 2012 under a new name - PavioseParafina - which means wicks and paraffin, and exclusively dedicated to candles, hurricanes, freshners and its scents.

Here I showcase the candles I create, some are born from my creativity and imagination with new and unique designs. I have a small book where I draw my crazy ideas and then heat (and sometimes burn) the tips of my fingers to create the candles I share for sale.

I use quality products in the making of my candles.
The soy wax and paraffin are bought @ candlemaking suppliers as well as the dyes and the essences & scents.
For my massage candles only natural certified products are used and mixed and the oil essences come from ecofriendly agriculture.
The beeswax comes directly from the family beehives (sunflower or multiflower) or from local producers (french lavender).

So, so sit down, grab a cup of your favorite drink and dive in the world of PavioseParafina. Welcome!

CANDLE SAFETY RULES:
- Always keep a burning candle within sight. Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep.
- Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
- Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.Do not place lighted candles where they can be knocked over by children, pets or anyone else.
- Always use a candleholder specifically designed for candle use. The holder should be heat resistant, sturdy and large enough to contain any drips or melted wax.
- Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans and air currents. This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning, and avoid flame flare-ups and sooting. Drafts can also blow lightweight curtains or papers into the flame where they could catch fire.
- Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room. Don't burn too many candles in a small room or in a "tight" home where air exchange is limited.
- Place burning candles at least three inches apart from one another. This is to make sure they don't melt one another, or create their own drafts that will cause the candles to burn improperly.
- Use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle. It's the safest way to prevent hot wax from splattering.
- Make sure a candle is completely extinguished and the wick ember is no longer glowing before leaving the room.
- Extinguish a candle if it smokes, flickers repeatedly, or the flame becomes too high. The candle isn't burning properly and the flame isn't controlled. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before re-lighting.
