A little note from me… Julia x
Candles are the one constant in my adult life… I must have bought hundreds in my time as gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas as well as for my own personal use and enjoyment. I realised that as I was buying so many of them, that I would try my hand at making them, and (after many many months of testing and perfecting) in 2019 Calon Candles was born.
I wanted a Welsh element to the name, although I needed one that was easy to pronounce whether or not the person picking up the candle was a Welsh-speaker or not. (“Calon” is the Welsh word for “Heart” by the way!).?
Having recently relocated from beautiful Snowdonia I now live in a small village in Carmarthenshire. All the candles I make are hand-poured in small batches from my own home often with a little help from my two children. We are currently in the process of creating a bespoke home studio (so I can stop taking over the whole house!)
I only use 100% natural wax and what I believe are the finest cosmetic grade fragrance oils and essential oils on the market. One thing you can be sure of is that I never launch a new blend until I am fully happy with the aesthetics of the candle, and of course, the all important “hot throw”. The range is constantly expanding and I now offer a range of products: Sentiment candles – perfect for gifting; Aromatherapy candles with essential oils; seasonal Christmas candles; high quality and long lasting wax melts; and a selection of melt warmers. I can even personalise your candle with one of our high quality bamboo lids.
IFRA and EU compliant.
100% natural wax used. We DO NOT test on animals.
Every candle has been carefully hand-poured in small batches in our home in Wales.
The candle jar and outer packaging is fully recyclable.
