The Yelp Elite Squad in Maine celebrated the end of the year with a candle making class at Sea Love in Biddeford. Owners Stacy and Barry Miller taught an Art of Scent Building workshop to an intimate group of Yelpers who had the opportunity to create (and recreate!) happy places and moments in time through smell thanks to this thoughtfully curated experience.
[The owners] were funny, knowledgeable, and passionate about what they do and it shows through everything I experienced. The workshop and learning about why quality candles are important for our health and the environment was great and not overbearing. Understanding why they use the materials they use comes from a personal and passionate POV that I admire and appreciate. Learning about the top, middle, and base notes was interesting as well. I enjoyed having the chance to smell all the scents and to mix and match what I liked. This personalized experience really made it that much more wonderful for me.Samantha L, Yelp Elite
Not only is the space amazing, so are Stacy and Barry whose passion for quality candle making and use shows! It’s so much fun to design a custom scent, and make something that will smell amazing. Even better is knowing the ingredients are sourced responsibly and the candles burn cleanly. The reed diffuser is so simple to make and smells wonderful. Their tips and tricks are so helpful to ensuring that you get the most out of your candle/reed diffuser.Hillary G, Yelp Elite

About Sea Love
“Sea Love, founder, Stacy Miller, started making candles in her basement in 2017 because (husband) Barry has asthma. She started experimenting with natural waxes after learning most common candles on the market are filled with toxic paraffin wax bases. After a year of making candles as a craft for herself and her friends, paired with feeling that her career path was not meeting her desire to help people, Stacy came up with the idea of Sea Love; a company that blended her loves (the sea and clean burning candles!), with a passion to help promote living a healthier lifestyle and giving back to environmental consciousness… Sea Love is a feeling – all inspired by a moment or place and designed with intention. Our candle bar and boutique is inspiration for life and home – a curated collection coastal inspired products combined with a custom experience to help bring your memories alive through the art of scent blending and ‘pouring your own’.”
