At ellby candles, we take pride in making sure you get the best out of your candle. There is nothing worse than buying a candle that smells amazing but when the candle is lit you cannot smell the fragrance, or even worse, when you love a candle but only seem to get half of what you purchased for because the wax doesn’t melt all around the sides. 

That is why ellby has spent 2 years trialling and testing different waxes, fragrance oils and methods to make sure you get the most out of your candle. 


I founded Ellby in 2019 after my husband and I went through IVF which unfortunately failed. 

I found the physical and mental health of the infertility world and failed IVF round extremely difficult and was struggling to see beyond where I was and identify who I was. 

I have always been a lover of candles, I mean have you really cleaned your house unless you have burned a candle at the end of it? 

I found burning a candle really helped with my anxiety, the smells filling a room made me feel whole and somewhat grounded so I thought to myself, Louise, life it too short to sit there and fell sorry for yourself over something that is out of your control, you need a hobby! 


I bought some candle supplies and had a little play around with things. I loved it, I had a hobby that made me happy because I enjoyed making the candles and also the calmness I felt while making them. 

One night I lit one of the candles I made and I said to my husband as a joke, “you never know, if I get good at this I could start a little business.” 

My husband straightaway said “do it, you love making candles for yourself, why don’t you make what you love for everyone else” 


So after 2 years of research, testing, frustration and joy, I bring to you Ellby. 

My name is me, it’s my brand. I am Louise Berrisford, initials being L and B which if you spell out is ellby.  

This journey over the past 2 years is not just about making the perfect candle that I think everyone will love as much as I do,  but part of who I am, who I identify as.
