About Us

Find out a little more about us.

Where are we?

We are based in the historic city of Portsmouth along the South Coast of England. This is where we make all our handmade candles. We’ve had stalls at local markets along Palmerston Road organised by Love Southsea, along with stalls on the popular South Parade Pier and Christmas Markets at Fareham Shopping Centre.Β

What makes us stand out?

At Candle Works we produce our candles using unique fragrance oils, which are individually hand tested in every product.

We strive for excellent customer service and complete customer satisfaction. This, along with our unique handmade products, makes us stand out from the rest!

All our products come packaged ready to give as a gift!

Great for any occasion or a special someone. An ideal gift for 2020, so why not visit our shop?

What wax do we use?

Today there is a lot of talk with regards to the wax many candle manufacturers use. This is why it’s important for candle makers to use a responsibly sourced and eco-friendly wax.

We use one of the market leading Sasol blended waxes in all our candles, this is a unique mix of paraffin and soy wax. This also gives them their wonderful scent throw and brilliant vibrant colours.

Sasol is an extremely clean and pure wax and contains less than 0.5% oil. Our wax has been created to avoid what would have been a waste product going into landfill, in turn helping protect the environment.Β 

Most candles available in shops are made using this type of wax and Sasol is a standard other manufacturers aspire to. Our wax and fragrance oil contain no animal ingredients and are not tested on animals.

Many candles are created using just soya wax, however, due to the increase in production of these candles it has led to land being converted to fields for this product. Some might say this is not quite environmentally friendly.

Please see each individual listing for allergens.
