About Us (well me)

Welcome to Smelty, my shop and passion project! I’m Paula, Brazilian-Australian entrepreneur and candle maker.

The journey of Smelty began when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease. In my search for ways to manage my condition, I discovered the power of essential oils and the soothing effects they can have on the body.

I became especially fond of the combination of lemongrass, cinnamon, and frankincense, but I couldn’t find any melts with that specific blend. So, I decided to create my own. That’s when my love for candle making began.

I started experimenting with different fragrances and eventually developed my own line of products, including the popular Aussie Christmas candle.

When the COVID pandemic hit and life changed for so many of us, I took my products to farmers markets and the response was overwhelmingly positive. From there, Smelty has grown and now includes the SmeltyMobile, which allows me to take my products on the road and share the joy of handmade candles and soaps with even more people.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey and find a scent that perfectly complements your style. Thank you for supporting small businesses like mine.
