The magic began in 1996, when the founder of PaddyWax, Gretchen Hollingsworth, stumbled across a magazine article describing ancient recipes of candle making. She tried to make candles right in her own kitchen to give them to her friends later on. The results were more than satisfying, and eventually her little hobby became a passion. Today, PaddyWax is a successful producer of scented candles, each of which is made of 100% natural soy wax and essential oils. For a perfect atmosphere, all you need to add is just a match.
