Love Candles By Eleni is a fab new brand out of Melbourne created by a local gal who, incidentally, I used to teach! Helen got in touch with me to tell me she’d started Love Candles – a business venture that suited her as a busy mum.
I love to hear stories about Melbourne based start-ups, specially when they manage to manufacture here as well. The candles are made using ecosoya wax, which is biodegradable and free from pesticides and herbicides. Using pure soy beans, they contains no petroleum and then there’s the heavenly scents created from oils.
What everyone wants to know when buying a candle, however, is two things: how long will it burn, and will it fill the room with scent? Well I can tell you that the burn-time for these candles is long, and the scent is subtle, but will fill your entire space. The burnt vanilla you can see in these photos, smells like I’ve been cooking with brown sugar, it’s delicious and because of the natural elements, I feel great about burning it with the baby in the house.
So there you go folks, another great little business started right here in Melbourne!
