About Shayla + Defined Elegance:

Hi, I’m Shayla. The Founder + CEO here at Defined Elegance Candle Company. I started Defined Elegance Candle Company when I couldn’t get my hands on a clean burning candle that was fragrant. I’ve always had a thing for candles. Growing up, they were my peace. When I noticed after burning big-box brand candles I would get a headache, I combined my love for home decor + candles; Defined Elegance Candle Co was founded, January 2017. 

Our candles truly put a zestful twist on luxury in a jar!

We pride ourselves on our meticulous craftsmanship, ethics, and affordability.
Our soy wax candles are all handmade and poured to perfection in our home studio. Defined Elegance Candle Co. uses only the purest of soy wax + quality fragrance + essential oils for a clean burn. Curated in Bowie, Maryland with 100% soy wax for an eco-friendly + toxin free experience. We use lead-free cotton wicks and premium, carcinogen-free fragrance + essential oils.  Our candles are vegan, cruelty-free, and phthalate-free. We are proud to make products that are beautiful, sustainable, and made in the USA. With love from our home to yours.

This class requires at least 6 participants.
