I have a love for vintage, anything handmade, DIY, art, and home decor. Back in 2013 I had been playing around with making candles for myself and for friends as gifts. Once I perfected my candle making and found a "signature" scent I opened my online store in March of 2013. One of my favorite candles is Diptyque Baies so I came up with something very similar, a blend of fresh cut roses and red currant. I started out making all of my candles in vintage cups and tea cups or whatever I come across during my estate sale browsing, thrift store shopping, garage sale scrounging and antiquing. Two years later in 2015, I expanded to branding and creating my own candle line. Since then I've added multiple new scents and continue to grow along with the company and demand. The signature ellion candle line now consists of candles in tumblers with wooden wicks and travel tins with cotton wicks with 6 different scents and counting.
I was originally born and raised in Louisiana but during the summer of 2014 I moved to Houston, TX to be a newlywed with my husband. I have loved becoming a part of the handmade Houston community and watching my small candle business grow!
