Isn't she lovely

My company comes from humble beginnings. Over a decade ago, my New Year's resolution was to learn a new hobby, why not candle making?

What started as a hobby quickly became a passion that led to various candle recipes, loads of research, lots of trial and error with a heavy helping of creativity. It has been fun! That being said, something was missing. I was disappointed by the lack of aesthetically pleasing vessels for candle making and thoughtfully curated DIY kits for the modern-day hobbyist.

I soon realized the need to start making my own candle vessels and curating unique candle making experiences. So that is exactly what I did. I set out to create a modern, sleek, beautiful candle vessel and Lovela + Company LLC came to life.

In July 2021, I opened a small studio to complete the design for The Essential Candle. A candle built on my mission to make a sustainable product entirely by hand but also to fill living spaces with clean, complex, custom-blended fragrances. Upon completing The Essential Candle, I began designing and crafting other products as well. I am proud to share with you an array of home fragrance goods you will truly enjoy.

Our products are designed, created, made-by-hand, formulated, printed, packed and shipped by us in our studio located in Austin, Texas.
