Earth Candles Co. was born from a families passion for our environment, combined with a love of handcrafted soy candles. Handmade in Warkworth using only 100% natural soy wax, the scented soy candles are enjoyed by candle lovers throughout New Zealand.
With a strong focus on the reduction of waste. At Earth Candles Co. they salvage empty wine bottles from local wineries (in and around the Warkworth and Matakana area) and repurpose them into natural soy wax candles. They start the meticulous process by de-labelling and cleaning all salvaged bottles, carefully cutting the top off each bottle, and finish the bottle by grinding and polishing the edge, leaving a smooth surface and a completed vessel ready for filling.
They hand-pour the soy wax for the candles into re-purposed wine and beer bottles, creating artisan candles with a piece of New Zealand within. Each of our five distinct core fragrances was chosen to evoke and create precious memories of our beautiful country.
Each handmade candle rests within its own glass vessel, which they make themselves from used wine and beer bottles. Not only does each vessel look attractive, but they can also be reused or recycled once the candle has burnt out. They are proud of the care and attention we place in their creation, right through to their delivery at your home.
Each candle comes with a beautiful timber lid, no more dusty candles and they look great too when not burning.
Approximate Burn Times:

Five fragrances to choose from:
Feel the vibes of this hippy seaside town. Breathe in the smell of the sun, sand, sea and surf at the spritz of Raglan Vibes a perfume inspired from the sights, sounds and smell of the town of Raglan. The fresh citrus and tropical fruit fragrances form the top notes that slowly meld into deeper spicy notes, so reminiscent of the vibrant and lovely Raglan and its community.
Lake Wanaka Retreat
Take relaxation to a whole new location. Enjoy a clean and delicate combination of bergamot, jasmine, ylang-ylang, infused with grounding rosewood fragrance oils reminiscent of the earthy and woodsy fragrance of trees by the lake. With top notes of bergamot and jasmine hints of the flowers growing among the trees.

A unique fragrance blend of Vanilla, Bergamot and Basil leaves your home smelling wonderfully fresh.
Revisit the place where two great water bodies clash before they merge. Breathe in the fresh and delightful fragrance of Cape Reinga Cliffs, a perfume that embodies the spirit of a place where an ancient Pohutukawa tree grows. With the initial whiff of bamboo, lime and ginger, the fragrance finally settles into the woodsy delicious fragrance of black cardamom and sandalwood with mid floral notes of Lily of the Valley and Jasmine.

Fill your home with the scent of fresh New Zealand Pine. Fresh and green, this fragrance is created with pine fragrance oil featuring a top note of citrus, and bottom notes including sandalwood and musk.
