Paulova specializes in thoughtfully crafted, handmade ceramic wares and fragrance products, made in the USA. All of the ceramics you see in the shop is made by hand on a pottery wheel, ensuring you receive a one of a kind piece. The candles and perfumes are made in small batches from premium ingredients, and are free of phthalates, paraffin and palm oil.
My ceramics are strongly influenced by the simplicity and clean lines of Scandinavian and Japanese design. These pieces are meant to be used and enjoyed. The glazes I use are free of lead and barium and are food-safe. Although my ceramics are microwave and dishwasher safe, I always recommend hand washing to preserve the longevity of your wares.
The candles are all individually hand-poured with a natural blend of coconut, soy and beeswax, and infused with essential oils, absolutes, resins and premium grade perfume oils. While it is often not disclosed, it is common practice to add palm wax or paraffin to coconut and soy wax candles as a stabilizer. I have chosen to add beeswax instead, to offer you a cleaner burning alternative to most other candles on the market. Also, the addition of botanical ingredients achieves a more authentic scent profile.
My perfume line is based on a few of my candle scents, with a higher concentration of botanicals. The solid fragrances are made from a scented creamy balm, including moisturizing jojoba oil, organic coconut oil and beeswax.
