Candle making was never one of my plans in life, but when my family and I moved to America it soon became my career. There were a lot of power outages where I used to live, so that got me thinking: What’s another way to have light without electricity? Candles! It may seem a bit old fashioned but it worked and eventually, it became a business for me. Now the name Eleni’s Candle isn’t the name we’ve always had, we didn’t really have a name at all until I realized that my daughter, Eleni, had a lot to do with my job. In the afternoons she would work with me, helping me take the candles out of the molds, and cutting each string to put inside of the candles. Then it hit me, Eleni’s Candle would be the perfect name.
