Sea and Sand Candles

Sea and Sand Candles

My love for all things beachy, good vibes and summer fun has lead to me making a collection of shell candles.

This range of candles is direct result of Raquel (me) Candle Artist, creative juices flowing from my dreamtime or meditative state.

These Candles feature beachy and fruity scents which will take you to memories of happiness from your favourite holiday or best day out!

My home based business is only minutes away from a very popular Island off the Coast of North Brisbane which is a popular holiday destination. Some of our favourite "down-time" activities include camping, boating, swimming and body surfing!

I have perfected each candle, over time by including coloured islands and pearls to go along with the unique shells we use.

I am so proud that we are leaders in candle design, that we do not follow the pack. Although we do get frustrated from time to time as newbie candle makers come along and try to imitate our exclusive designs and call it their own. Saying, this I try to have clear tunnel vision, not get distracted and stay focused on "our own lane/style", of candle making!

We often get asked are the shell candles safe and the answer would be Yes.

The first things we did when we came up with this design is obviously do batch testing, but also check to see what the shells would do once our special formula of soy wax blend burns down.

What we discovered is that the shells sink when the candle is lit and burned over a period of time, thus making them safe. We find that shells have a hard core and do not catch light and this makes our Insurance Company happy that we meet their requirements!

If you love the look of the shells on top of the candle and don't want to disturb the creative look, then simply before the wax re-sets after use is to grab a toothpick and scoot them to the outer edges. Well that's what I do anyway!

If you have a Hamptons Style Home or a Beachy Bungalow and love white interiors whilst co-ordinating pops of colour, then this in-style candle will make your room pop and be a great talking point when family and friends come to visit.

Well that's all for me today, if this style of candle interests you and you want to have a cheeky peek then click here.
