Meet the Owners

I always knew I wanted to own a business. I just didn’t have the courage or funds to do so. One day a friend suggested we make lotion candles. There was some hesitation because I began to think who is going to buy them? She said what’s the worst that could happen you try and fail or you never try at all, and you never know if you would have done well.

I bought my first candle making kit and instantly fell in love with candle making.

Elfilina Essentials is a business I started because of my love for candles and other girly things that make women smile. It is my intent to create essentials (candles, whipped soap, body butter and men's beard care) my customers will enjoy as much as I do!

Each candle is hand poured in my home from 100% all natural soy. The wicks are all cotton so they will produce a clean burn with little soot released. This will allow for a longer burn time with the candles (burn time will vary depending on size). The scents used are phthalate free.

Candles are great for birthdays, holidays, and weddings. They also make great gifts for family and friends. Contact me to try one today – Elfilina Essentials will not disappoint!!

Most of all thank you for shopping and supporting local businesses!
