My name's Amanda and this is my shop, Stardust Candle Company .
This incredible journey started over a year ago.
I began researching, learning and testing the art off candle making because of my love of scented candles. Over the years I found I was always disappointed with the candles I bought not burning correctly and the scent not lasting as long as claimed, some would even aggravate my husband's allergies.
I began my journey testing different soy waxes that I liked and learned the art and science behind it all, testing what seemed like a thousand wicks and fragrances, until I was happy with a formula that worked well and
I instantly became hooked and kept making and testing.
I fell in love with using soy wax as it's so nice to work with and it's clean burning and lasts so much longer compared to parrafin candles.
I'm a fulltime mum to a little boy who is 2 years old and I have a daughter who is 12 years old who calls me the crazy candle lady as I'm always making and testing lots of candles and they are all around our home!
I have one amazing husband who has supported me every step of the way to fulfil my dream of creating an amazing product that I can share with all of you.
I'm the maker and creator of our beautiful candles, but my husband is the one who creates all my branded labels to give my candles that finishing touch.
It was my little boy who inspired me to name my business Stardust Candle Company due to his obesession with stars and it being his first ever word.
Then came the idea to name my candles after the stars in our solar system to make them alittle more unique to our brand and to fit in with our theme.
All our candles are handmade by myself and blended with beautiful hand selected high quality artisian fragrance oils.
Soy wax needs to settle and bind with the fragrance oil so that it fills your home with a beautiful aroma, I'm constantly making and creating and building up my stock of my candles to ensure they are cured so they are ready to post out immediately so you don't have to wait. In busier periods you may receive a note with your candle with an advisory date on to leave it a few more days before you light it, so it's cures a little bit longer and reaches its full potential.
I use eco soy wax and paraben free fragrance oils, all my candles are also 100% vegan friendly and completely parrafin & lead free.
I hope you love my candles as much as me and my family and friends 😊
More scents will be added along the way !
