Provider Description

I grew up in the south of France, surrounded by the lavender fields of Provence, alongside flourishing sunflowers and olive trees. I developed a passion for the fragrances of nature as a child and started making and collecting my own perfume as a hobby. My passion has evolved into a love for candles and the cozy, healing ambiance they create in your home by diffusing these beautiful scents which evoke comforting memories of childhood.

Being an avid candle collector myself, I began to notice that some fragrances would give me headaches or trigger allergies. This is when I dug deeper and did my own research on what could be causing these reactions. What I discovered was that my favorite candle brands actually use synthetic chemicals to imitate fragrances and to reduce their costs. These chemicals, as it turns out, are very bad for our health and the environment, not so healing and cozy after all! This is where I come in….

I have since made it my mission to learn how to make my own scented candles by utilizing the best quality and l naturally sourced ingredients available. I have created my own unique recipe that uses vegetal waxes such as soy & coconut and pure essential oils in place of chemical substitutes.

My objective is to teach you what I have learned for myself, and giving you the power and skills to create a healthy, fragrant, 100% natural candle you can feel really good about burning in your home.

    I enjoyed the class. The instructor was very knowledgeable and pleasant. I will not look at candles the same way and plan to make my own. I would definitely recommend this class. It was fun and I got to take home a great smelling and looking candle. It was fun!

    I loved this class! Melanie is a great instructor who thoroughly covers candlemaking and shares generously. She welcomed questions throughout the class, and since we finished about 15 minutes early, we had plenty of time to cover lingering curiosities. I feel excited and confident about making candles would highly recommend her as an instructor, as well as this course.
