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.
This was a really great class. Melanie is a great teacher and shared some incredibly helpful tips and tricks, along with the best advice on natural candle ingredients. Highly recommend.
I was able to meet great like-minded people from all walks of life. Melanie provided great tips and pointers, along with supplier information. She’s making herself available for questions and feedback even after the course which is much appreciated. We didn’t make our own candles during class but was able to see Melanie create one.
Very kind teacher and very informative. Also wonderfully answered any and all questions.
