At some point early on in life, I became fascinated by what memories and emotions a scent – even in just a sliver of a moment – could evoke. [Note:  Here is where you could insert your own paraphrased a quote of ‘smell is the strongest sense tied to memory’] 
More recently, I became intrigued by upcycling wine bottles for a number of different things--I wanted to make candles. Well candle containers.
I began recycling wine bottles from local wineries and restaurants--after cutting the bottles and use the now upcycled bottle as a container to hold the hand poured scented soy blend wax.
When I started, I think one person believed that I was serious about making candles – I do not fit the stereotypical mold of a candlemaker (if there is such a thing). But I was serious.
I hope you enjoy Hella Candles!
