If you follow our studio updates over on Instagram you will know that we have been working on this collaborative series for the last 15 months. I am so very excited to be sharing this project with you all, a series where we look forward to bringing you beautiful bespoke hand poured candles through collaboration. These limited edition candles and accessories will be sold in small batches, each item will arrive at your door with a certificate of authenticity, making the perfect thoughtful gift.

Working with like minded creatives is something I am passionate about so without any more teasing let me introduce the first creative to you…

This past year has really reiterated the importance of surrounding yourself with people who inspire you, challenge you, love you and support you. To find those people in life is a rare treasure worth holding onto…and in business it can be even more rare but Mimi Chaun of M/mskii is one of those people. She is incredibly talented, kind and patient – I could not have partnered with a better person for the first collection of this series. 

Together, we would like to showcase to you the very first collection of SML + CO.

Floral Slumber. A dreamy blend of rose and lavender organic essential oils delicately infused into soy wax and hand poured into these limited edition, bespoke M/mskii ceramic vessels. Studio Melissa Louise candles are vegan, we pride ourselves for being a producer of a top quality, non harmful product that burns beautifully, smells divine and is also a nourishing massage oil. Simply apply the melted wax to your skin to moisturise and treat affected areas.

Rose essential oils are known to balance hormones, reduce acne and assists with the relief of depression while lavender releases nervous tension, stabilises moods and enhances sleep quality. These feminine undertones are what inspired Mimi Chuan, Cape Town based ceramicist, to create the perfect vessel for our candles, hand etched with delicate organic shapes and hints to lashes and flora. We envisioned this beauty on your dressing table and therefore paired it with a ring bowl to keep your jewels safe while you sleep. We also love that you can store your make up brushes in the vessel once the candle is finished… a nod to a waste free life which is another passion we share.

There are only 25 sets in this series, to avoid disappointment, shop yours online – we courier nation wide to your door. Please note that no two items are the same.

Thank you for your love and support, it’s because of you that I can follow my dreams.
