Qualities of a Good Candle

Candles can vary in quality which ultimately can affect burn quality and fragrance. Low quality candles will use lead wicks and paraffin wax, high quality candles tend to use cotton wicks and soy wax plus phthalate free fragrance oil.

Candles on our list can vary greatly but all of them are sure to be fun.

What is the Best Brand of Candle?

Etsy has become a huge source of hand made candles that are typically higher quality than massively produced brands. For example Bath and Body Works candles are typically overpriced and burn quickly but Yankee Candle’s seem to have a long burn time. In the end it’s good to know you’re supporting a smaller shop who hand makes candles rather than a huge company.

Why are Candles so Expensive?

High quality candles can seem expensive but if a candle has an organic combination of oils used to create the fragrance this can greatly increase the cost to produce the candle. Things like burn speed and how evenly the candle burns are also an indication of quality.
