Your host:
As a creative and nature-loving candle artisan, I invite you to explore my botanical world through my handmade candle creations. My products, made under the Ombellessence brand, use 100% European vegetable wax (rapeseed and sunflower) from non-GMO and additive-free sources, presented in custom packaging that opens like a blossoming flower. I prioritize short supply chains, select Grasse fragrances free of CMR and phthalates, and source organic dried flowers from local French floral farms. I also offer traditional dipped candles made using an ancient technique. To ensure the longevity of my creations, I have designed two lines of refillable and reusable containers.
