About Us

Who we are and what we do

Bowdens Candles were established in February 2016. We had a passion for candles and decided to have a go at making them ourselves.

All of our candles are hand poured in small batches using only natural soy wax that are vegan friendly and cruelty free, no nasty chemicals will be released into your home when burning.

Get the most from your candles

To get the most out of your homemade candle, please take note of the following instructions and recommendations:

Trim the wick

For candles with a normal cotton wick, please keep wicks trimmed to about 0.5cm. Keeping the wick nice and short means your candle will burn at the right temperature, it will be less smoky and you'll have less wick trimmings falling into the pool of wax surrounding the wick.

Let it melt

Each time you light your candle, allow the top surface to melt completely. (Do not leave lit longer than 4 hours) Give the wax a chance to melt so that the whole top surface is a runny liquid. This will mean your soy wax candle will melt down correctly and at an equal rate the whole way down. This will help reduce the likelihood of wax sticking to the side of your glass container.

Burn the wick

We recommend burning your candle for between 1 and 3 hours at a time for optimal results. If it burns for less than an hour, you may end up with wax sticking to the side of your glass container, which may reduce burn time and may drown your wick (Requiring manual wax removal). If the candle burns for too long, your wick may burn hotter than usual and evaporate the soy wax at a faster rate, reducing burn time.

Close the lid

When your candle is not in use, keep the lid closed to retain the fragrance strength. Leaving the lid off for extended periods of time may result in a weaker candle fragrance next time you light your candle.

Please refer to the Candle Saftey Rules here.
