ForCandles was founded in 2017.
The journey began through a love of candles and a growing frustration with what we saw as a lack of overall product quality.
We wanted candles that burned well, not just down the middle, candles that had meaningful colour with lovely long-lasting fragrances and without harmful chemicals.
Our beautifully crafted soy candles and melts are made from 100% soy wax with essential oil fragrances, natural colours and lead-free cotton, or wooden, wicks.
Each soy candle, and melt, is hand poured by us in Queensland, Australia, and our strict Quality Control means candle products by ForCandles are brought to you well presented and to a consistently high, and reproducible, standard.
Our products are Vegan and cruelty free. In fact our products are free from paraffin (and all other petroleum products), free from artificial additives, are phthalate-free and are made with fragrances that are to IFRA standards.
Due to our superior formulation, minimal residue is left behind which means you enjoy all of the candle.
Our large soy candles have a burn time of 40-45 hours, medium candles 30-35 hours and our small tins (52mm diameter, 35mm deep) have a burn time of around 8 hours.
Our soy melts have been formulated to release easily from their clam-shell mould packaging for easy use in oil burners. Our melt cubes are specially formulated for a cleaner release.
In 2018 we introduced our ‘Indulgence for Men’, or Mandle, range. Candles designed with men in mind but with fragrances for everyone.
