Our Story


The Pure Candle Company crafts hand-poured soy wax candles in our Northumberland studio, using soy wax and fragrances sourced and created in the UK. 

Our candle fragrances are inspired by nature to calm, soothe and delight your senses.

I first began experimenting with waxes and fragrances in my kitchen, in between wrangling my three energetic sons, to try and create an environmentally friendly candle that I couldn’t find anywhere else.

Today The Pure Candle Company offers a beautifully fragranced soy wax candle range, made in small batches in our Northumberland studio, and environmentally friendly in every way.

We use 100% soy wax which is ethically produced from sustainable sources in the UK.

Our candles are clean burning, with no tunnelling or leftover wax. They have some of the longest burn times around.

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 - they make perfect drink glasses.

You can buy our candles in our online shop and also in a number of independent boutiques and selected National Trust shops in the North East of England and London.
