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.
Melanie was fantastic. We had a great time and left with the skills to make our own candles. Thank you Melanie
I really enjoyed this class. Melanie was very friendly and knowledge. This is a great class to take either if you are preparing to start your own candle making business or if you are just doing this for fun. Melanie very generously shared all of her knowledge and experience and answered any questions coming up in the class. : )
I had a great time at this class!
The class was very good; however, it should be noted that this is geared towards someone who intends to make candles again in the future using the skills they learned in this class. If that is your focus, I can't think of a better option. Seriously, this is an exceptional class for that. If you're just looking for a quick class to make some candles, it is still a good one. Although you won't get as much out of it
Perfect!! Learn so much and she is super sweet and knowledgeable.
Fun, approachable instructor made the class awesome. Highly recommend!
Wonderful class - Melanie was a knowledgeable and friendly instructor, and the candles turned out great! Wine and cheese were delicious, too :)
A wonderful and informative class!
Awesome class!, Melanie was very approachable and fun. I have been making my own candles for quite some time now (self taught) and decided to take this class in order to gain some new tips and insight, Melanie was able to answer my questions and really inspired me moving forward. The class is well organized and the resources and information Melanie shares are invaluable , I highly recommend anyone interested in candle making to take her class.
Melanie is amazing. She shared a lot about how she got into this business and just make you feel you can relate to. You barely see instructors that are willing to share everything with students these days. We learned more than how to make candle.
