About Denbies Candles

Thank you for visiting my website.  I set this website up in June 2019 after selling on Etsy for 18 months.  This is a huge step for me as a small independant business!

I am passionate about fragrance and bringing scents into our homes and places of work for you to enjoy.  I have always been a fan of candles and decided to turn my passion for candles and scents into a business.  I establised Denbies Candles in November 2017 and make hand poured soy wax candles and wax melts. 

I like to be busy!  I am a mum to a young daughter and also work part time.  Running this business while being a working mum is hard work, a lot harder than what I thought! Luckily, I also have a very supportive husband who helps where he can. I use a spare room at home to store my products and work.  My daughter fondly refers to this room as "mummies candle room". She also loves smelling all my products and proudly declares that each one is her favourite!!

I started with only eight fragrances selling at local craft fairs.  I have steadily grown my product range and business and I now make wax melts, candles in a tin and a range of luxury glass candles in over 60 fragrances.  I still attend craft fairs and events within Yorkshire, I love speaking to customers face to face and hearing feedback and ideas for new scents. As a small business, I try and support other small businesses and I also have my candles stocked in a number of independant retailers. I am also supported by a great local customer base in Huddersfield who I have met through friends, networking events & craft fairs.

All my candles and wax melts are CLP compliant which is a legal requirement.  This means that each individual product comes affixed with a CLP label which details the allergens in the fragrance oils, environmental and safety information. I have also recently expanded and offer a CLP printing service for other candle and wax melt makers.

We also have a loyalty reward scheme.  All orders over £15.00 will receive a loyaly card and for each future order over this amount you will receive star.  Fill your card to receive a discount!

In addition to the products available to purchase in my shop, I have also worked on bespoke orders such as making candles in recycled glass jars and wax melt favours for giveaways at an event.  Please don't hesitate to contact me for a bespoke quote on any ideas you may have.

Enjoy browsing my products and I hope you get as much enjoyment from them as I get from making them!

Reducing Plastic

I've always been concious of the amout of plastic I use and receive from my supplier orders.  I've taken some steps to reduce plastic and reuse where I can. My packaging for wax melts are all packaged in compostable & biodegrable vegetable starch bags and decorated with biodegradable glitter. The containers for my candles can be cleaned and re-used for storage or tea light holders. It doesn't stop there!  I use packing peanuts and paper to pack orders and eco friendly brown tape.

Wholesale

I also supply to the wholesale market and have a range of candles and wax melts that can be supplied at wholesale prices for you to either customise with your own branding or produced with Denbies Candles branding ready for you to sell straight away.
