Himalayan Candles was started in 2004 as a home-based business, by pouring wax into wooden containers bought from India and selling them at local antique shows and craft fairs. The company grew from there as it found its niche, with special fragrance combinations and distinctive containers creating high quality artisan candles.
Himalayan’s soy candles are handmade in small batches with meticulous attention to details and packaged in Georgia. They offer a competitively paid, pleasant and flexible working environment for their candlemakers, packers and shipping staff. They source our containers directly by partnering with small scale manufacturers from all over the world, and only work with factories that have transparent and fair working conditions for their staff.
Himalayan Candles takes much of its inspiration from the unexpected, the vintage, or the distressed textures of bygone times. Their fragrances are complex and layered, uniquely designed to evoke a specific time and place, and the vessels are created with an eye for both beauty and reuse.
