Hi there

My name is Elena and I start my business Bellanina Creations in 2016 making candles

Candle making is a form of art and in one that I have a wealth of knowledge and expertise gained over many years of candle making. My expertise goes far beyond wax and wicks. I have hosted many classes and met many wonderful people and each time it truly brings so much joy to my heart just by seeing people from all walks of life including first-timers, hobbyists and entrepreneurs enjoying my class making candles.

Throughout my class, I ensure everyone is involved and engaged having a hands-on experience at making candles. I discuss how different ingredients react and how to work with them safely, how candle testing is conduct and all the troubleshooting you might encounter on your journey. At the end of my sessions, I only hope that I made a difference to someone not only by improving their knowledge and skills in the subtle art of candle making but also ensuring a fun weekend experience had by all.

I must also mention that I do my absolute best in protecting our beautiful planet. I make every endeavour to ensure the products and the ingredients I use is sustainable and ethically sourced where possible. I would like to add for your peace of mind - my fragrances are completely vegan and cruelty-free and adhere to RIFM and IFRA standards for safety and purity.

My candles and my soap is created with passion and represents my craft.

With that said, I hope to see you on my next workshopand get your feedback on board as I always aim to improve.
