Hello. I am Karelle, sole owner and maker at Handmade by Karelle, now affectionately known as HbK.
Who We Are
Welcome to my website. If you have visited before, you will have noticed many changes – mostly, that I currently only making and selling candles. Whereas in years gone, my website was full of body products and a range of different home products, I am now specialising in Luxury Candles. And what amazing candles they are. Made with all natural Rapeseed and Coconut Wax, and scented with the most beautiful scents, these candles are something special.
The wax is blended in Europe exclusively for one British company, and is made from rapeseed oil and coconut oil and nothing else. It is completely free from paraffin, soy, palm, beeswax and synthetic additives. Because it is all natural, it almost has a personality of it’s own, and every candle is unique! Sometime they set perfectly, other times they may have a few small cracks, a bubble or two in the surface, or appear a little less than perfectly smooth. All of these features are perfectly normal for this wonderful wax, and won’t affect how they burn or smell.
All of my candles are painstakingly tested by myself and my dedicated team of volunteers to ensure they are safe, burn consistently well, and most importantly, fill your room with their wonderful scent. I hope you decide to try them, and that you are as happy with them as I am.
