Business Owner, MyLi Candles

Alison Thomas is a born and bred Griffith local who started out her career as an Export Coordinator at a local winery. She had a love of scented 100% soy candles, home decor and beautiful fragrances and it has proved a very successful hobby.

Myli...light of mine...was born in 2012 and is the inspiration of her beautiful girls Myah & Lillah (MyLi), with her 3rd princess, Evie, born in 2015! Alison has been supported by her husband Nathan, her wonderful mother and friends who are always by her side. They have always encouraged her to follow her passion and dreams.

The concept of commercial acumen wasn’t on Alison’s radar when the idea for Myli was born. Nowadays Alison has a strong understanding of the business world relevant to her product; this is backed by a ready grasp of what her company needs to do to succeed.

Alison’s products are now on offer at 11 retail outlets throughout Australia via a wholesale model. In 2018, Alison ventured into the brave new world of a retail store of her very own. Each and every candle, diffuser and melt on offer in her range is all hand poured right here in Griffith, New South Wales.
