Billie Detchokul – Sensilla Candles.

I am a biomedical scientist who loves making nice smelling things. It surprises me every day how different scents trigger reactions and memories in each individual person. I feel energised when my home is smelling nice and fresh. At markets, I love seeing the relationship between the human sense of smell and how it affects peoples moods. This reminds me every time why I started Sensilla. It is such a pleasure to be able to create a product that people enjoy and take home to brighten their space, home is where the magic happens.

My business was established in 2015, time flies when you are having fun, and I really enjoy meeting and working with small businesses around Australia. I am proud to have grown personally, and as a small business given the challenges I have overcome in the past few years.

I create home fragrances and bath products including soy candles, room sprays, soy melts, diffusers, liquid soaps and essential oils.

I take inspiration from nature and the world around me, and as well as enjoying blending new scents, I adore designing labels. All fragrances in the candles and reed diffusers are Australian made.

How I create my range.

Soy Candles – I use a double boiler method where wax is heated via indirect heat. Fragrances are mixed at high temperature and poured at a set temperature in order for the candles to set in a gentle cooling method. I have experimented with lots of different scents and waxes until I found the best combination for my business.
