Our Story

 

Eco-friendly, inspired by nature

Our handmade candles are our pride and joy. Our small and dedicated team craft hand-poured 100% soy wax candles in our Northumberland studio, using ethically sourced and cruelty-free soy wax and fragrances. Our eco-friendly candles are made with a growing range of fragrances, each inspired by nature to calm, soothe, and delight your senses.

We first began experimenting with waxes and fragrances in my kitchen to try and create an environmentally friendly candle that I couldn’t find anywhere else. Today, The Pure Candle Company offers a range of beautifully fragranced soy wax candles, handmade in small batches in our Northumberland studio.

100% soy wax from sustainable sources

We use 100% soy wax which is ethically produced from sustainable sources. Our candles are clean burning, with no tunnelling or leftover wax. Our container candles are all frequently tested to ensure our high standards are maintained. Please see our burning tips & safety section for advice on getting the most from your candle.

Our desire was to create luxury handmade candles that were free of harmful paraffin wax. Some of the most coveted luxury candle brands are made by machine from paraffin wax, a world away from our lovingly handmade candles. Paraffin wax creates toxins when burned, collecting in your home. Conversely, soy wax is sustainable, biodegradable, and clean burning; great if you're prone to allergies.

It’s not just the candles themselves that are environmentally friendly. As soy wax is biodegradable and water soluble, it means our glass containers are easily washable, making them recyclable or reusable - making perfect drink glasses.
