ABOUT THE FOUNDER

About Us

Hi!  My name is Elizangela Bowser (my friends call me Liz) and I founded Casabela Shoppe.

Casabela Shoppe began with the idea that a candle shouldn't have to be pre-designed. Like any other home furnishing you buy, a candle should be a reflection of you!

Why should a candle scent and color be limited to the current season?

So, I started making candles for myself and also gifting them to family and friends and have been doing so for the last 13 years.

While I've wanted to open an online store since Casabela Shoppe's conception in 2006, life kept side-tracking me.  Between demanding full-time jobs, interstate moves and life's other curve balls, getting my pet project off the ground was always put on the back-burner.

Not anymore!  I've dedicated most of my free time in the last year working on this website and I am excited to see my idea finally come to life!

ABOUT OUR PRODUCT

Here, at Casabela Shoppe, we specialize in handmade candles and natural hair and skin care products.

Our shampoo and conditioner bars and soaps are handcrafted in the USA, vegan & cruelty free.

We offer pillar and container candles in various shapes and sizes. We have a wide selection of scents and colors to choose from.

Casabela Shoppe is committed to promoting positive energy and sustainability. Most of our product labels are positive words so that users can feel good when using them.  We also like to select containers that can be repurposed once the candle has completed burning (i.e. glasses, mugs, vases, bowls).

We are Environment and Human Friendly!
We only use vegetable waxes, natural wicks and phthalates-free fragrances. Our products are packaged and shipped, using only biodegradable peanuts, kraft paper and cardboard.

We are continuously looking for ways to reduce our plastic and waste footprint.

We pride ourselves on maximizing the fragrance of our candles.  We use the highest recommended percentage of fragrance oil, usually between 7 - 10%.  And, fragrance oil is added at the recommended pour temperature and stirred gently and thoroughly with the melted wax to achieve maximum scent throw results.

We hope you enjoy our candles and that they truly are a reflection of you!!

We are constantly looking for more products that are human and environment friendly, so stay tuned...
