Meet the Maker
My name is Kirsty.
I have always loved creating beautiful things. Hand pouring soy candles allows me to do so and has become a real passion. My perfectionist nature ensures that each candle crafted is high of quality.
La Candela was born in 2015 when I began making candles for gifts. It soon blossomed and the name 'La Candela' was chosen. My partner and I had recently visited Europe and developed a love of Spain and it's culture/language. 'La Candela' means 'The Candle' in Spanish.
Since leaving full time employment and having my little girl, I have been able to dedicate more time to my small business. She is now the driving force behind it all, as working from home allows me to spend more time with her - so for every sale I am truly grateful!
