Picture this: a curious soul captivated by the alluring curves and smoothness of a stunning female torso candle.
That was the moment when my candle-making adventure began, and little did I know that it would become a passion project that brings joy, relaxation, and a touch of magic to my life. Welcome to the whimsical world of HOT Candles!
As a busy graphic and web designer running my business, Designerbloom, my weekdays are a juggling act of school lunches, drop-offs, pick-ups, and the never-ending cycle of cleaning, washing, cooking, and repeat. But amidst the chaos, I found solace and creative freedom in making candles. It became my creative escape from the screens and deadlines, a delightful hobby that lights up my soul.
It all started with a playful desire to have my own sexy body candle. Eager to embark on a little DIY adventure, I delved into the world of candle-making and fell head over heels for the process. I must confess, I may have enjoyed it a bit too much! The joy of creating something beautiful with my own hands, and the sheer delight I felt when gifting these candles to friends and seeing their reactions, inspired me to take a leap and share my creations with the world.
HOT Candles is the result of my candle-making passion, carefully handcrafted in small batches at my home-studio in the enchanting Aotea, Porirua, Wellington. Each candle is a labor of love, taking up to 12 hours to create. From the very first candle I made in June 2022 to the progress I've made since then, I'm proud of every step of this magical journey.
Why candles, you might ask? Well, besides being a creative outlet, candle-making offers so much more. It's a form of self-expression, a way for me to explore different colours, shapes, and designs, and transform wax into unique works of art. The process itself is a delightful ritual, a moment of relaxation and meditation. As I melt and pour the wax, a sense of tranquility washes over me, and the gentle glow of the candles creates an ambiance of coziness and peace.
But it doesn't stop there. What truly makes this journey special is the ability to personalise each candle, infusing it with meaning and significance. Whether it's a design that resonates with my own story or a thoughtful gift created for someone dear to my heart, every candle becomes a semi-permanent piece of art that holds memories and emotions.
HOT Candles is a curated selection of shapes that I personally adore and cherish in my own spaces, and my hope is that they bring the same joy and magic to your life. So join me on this whimsical adventure, where creativity knows no bounds and each flicker of light whispers a tale of passion and self-expression.
Remember, the best things in life are handmade, and HOT Candles is a testament to that. Let the glow of these exquisite creations illuminate your world and ignite your own creative spark. Welcome to the enchanting realm of HOT Candles, where magic meets craftsmanship, and every candle tells a unique story.
With love and light, Sara-Jane ♥
