“Hi, I’m Rachael, a wife and a mum of one to my beautiful daughter, I work full time at my local Harcourts office, however my candle business is my passion and what lights me up (so to speak).
My candle obsession started while I was living in Melbourne, Australia. I went to a candle making workshop and that was the beginning of my love of candles. In 2012 I created Makoha Candles where I started selling candles at my local market and making gifts for my friends and family. When I moved back to my hometown, I decided to make it a little easier to find my candles online, so I changed the business name to Christchurch Candles. I love our city and Christchurch brings so much joy to so many Cantabrian’s which is why I wanted to incorporate it into the name.
I love what I do and hope you will share in my obsession of beautiful scents drifting through your home or office.”
