Local brand Byron Bay Candles has established a luxury collection of eco-friendly home fragrances that transport you to the wild essences of the natural world. Each hand-poured candle elevates a space with the clever combination of vegan soy wax and essential oils without nasty ingredients like petroleum, palm oil, paraffin or synthetic stabilisers.
This family-run business began in 2001 and has been tantalising our senses ever since!
Under the watchful eye and nose of Anne-Marie Dove alongside her tight-knit family, Byron Bay Candles has progressed into an iconic business and regional go-getter within the market of home fragrance and coastal aesthetics. Their fresh approach to the creative process is a master class in both artistry and science. Every candle is a fusion of fine fragrance oils that are slowly poured into warmed wax and finished with a cotton wick in the heart of the candle for a stable burn. The pouring process is crucial to ensuring a quality product, where no shortcuts are taken, so every element is meticulously monitored and organically sourced. Their factory is located within the Arts & Industrial Centre, where you can visit their team of local artisans for an immersive experience of divine scent.
Byron Bay Candles are much more than just a pretty centrepiece; they have the power to enhance your mood and encourage relaxation and ease with their carefully curated blends. Their best-selling Coconut and Lime is heavenly; it exudes tropical beach vibes and is the perfect balance of creamy coconut and zesty citrus that totally refreshes the air around. The Lotus Flower Candle is uplifting, full of inviting floral bouquets that subtly diffuse into the atmosphere without overpowering it. The grounding notes of the Sandalwood and Vanilla Candle can create a sense of ease and reduce immediate anxieties. They also have a vibrant range of reed diffusers that are great for dispersing a sweet aroma around the clock, and the minimalist design blends seamlessly into your home.
You should always try to burn your candle for at least an hour on the first light; this allows the top layer of wax to melt equally across the top. The soy wax acts like a memory, so this will give you an even burn every time. Try to trim the wick regularly to slow down the flame and stop it from burning too quickly; this will also prevent the wick from moving and any soot from staining the glass. Byron Bay Candles has devised an ingenious zero-waste scheme with their refill opportunity, meaning you can keep returning to your favourite fragrances whilst minimising waste. We also love recycling the glass containers; when your candle is finished, swirl it out with boiling water (oven mitts are a good idea), flush out any remaining wax and wipe it out with a paper towel. These are great for storing makeup brushes, stationary or safely popping your jewellery into at the end of the day.
Byron Bay Candles are the perfect gift, a warm thank you, a thoughtful housewarming or a special treat for yourself. Check out their website for more information as well as our extensive choice of hampers that carry a variety of these beautiful candles!
