Amanda Kelly - Candles

Amanda Kelly

I have Parkinsons Disease and making my own candles helps me relax and continue to fight this disease.

Through Covid I decided to teach myself how to make candles as itís something I love and find a candle relaxing. I was diagnosed with young persons parkinsons disease at 36. The first 10 years have been ok but the latter 2 have been very hard. So I found myself a hobby of candle making which relaxes me and helps me fight this crippling disease. Through Covid and lots of trials and errors I perfected my skills and Iím very proud to say my candles have had so many amazing reviews from friends and family, from the smell and presentation to the finishing burn, that I decided to sell my products. Since I began properly in July last year I have seen it slowly grow. I now make not only my candles but also wax melts, diffusers, car diffusers, room sprays and Iím currently practicing bath bombs and bath salts. All my candles are refillable and all my products are made with natural ingredients and I only use eco friendly products for my wax melts, candles and all my other products. I absolutely love what I do and hoping to see my business grow a little more this year too.
