Hi! I'm Jovanna :)
I am a trained yoga & meditation teacher, amateur candle maker, plant enthusiast, and Vedic astrologer. I have always enjoyed my solitude and one of my passions since I was a teenager has been to make candles for myself and loved ones.
I'm not particularly creative in any traditional way; I don't paint, I don't dance, I don't compose music or play instruments... but since I was a little girl, I dreamt of my very own apothecary, with labeled glass jars filled with all kinds of different herbs, flowers, and plants. I dreamt of making all sorts of things with them: tonics, teas, and candles.
When I was 14 or 15, I went to Michael's and bought a candle making kit; I instantly fell in love with creating them. Before I ever sat down in meditation, this was one of the ways I centered myself. While creating these vehicles for light and pleasant aromas, I felt for the first time like I had found a way to truly create something that I thought was beautiful. It rejuvenated my soul with a sense of humble pride, and I loved gifting them to those who I knew would appreciate them.
In this course, I hope I can introduce you to the same feeling I felt all those years ago. The opportunity to spend quality time with your Self, while creating something so simple, yet so magical.
In this course, we will go over the fundamentals of candle making and hone our knowledge of this ancient craft. I hope you enjoy!
With love & gratitude,
