Our Story

   Years of Hand Pouring Beautiful Candles   

Melbourne Candle Company, first started in 2014 as a fun hobby to keep my mind (and hands) busy after being made redundant. While waiting for that next big job to come along, I began, making hand-made gifts for friends and loved ones. Over the years I perfected the technique to produce the delicate hemp wick candles we have today. They are completely natural, environmentally sustainable and can burn for 40+ hours (large tin).

 

Hemp wick candles have many environmental advantages over cotton wick candles and are more sustainable than cotton wicks. The crops use substantially less water than cotton and can also grow up to 14 times in the one spot before the need for fertilisers. Hemp will also grow from seed to harvesting in only 90 days.

​Our candles are naturally scented with the finest candle oils to produce a delicate, steady and beautiful flame. Our fragrances are also up to date with current market trends. Each scent has been named after a historic Melbourne location in accordance with the impact that the location had on the city at the time.

 

Each candle is hand poured in Melbourne into its own tin and wrapped in a 1880s map of the associated Melbourne landmark. This makes them ideal for transporting and great gifts that can be sent through post or taken overseas.
