Our Story


About Us


Our most treasured memories of our childhood are those spent in the kitchen, cooking with our Mum. Using recipes handed down through generations to create meals to remember. Now as adults we relive this special memory every day working together with three generations of our family handmaking beautiful soy wax candles with scents to inspire and remember.


Why Use Soy Wax? 

Inspired Candles uses only 100% Soy Wax. Soy candles are made from soybeans, they are a natural renewable product grown in many regions by local farmers. This makes it a more environmentally friendly product. 

Interestingly, Soy wax burns slower, making it a longer lasting candle which burns at a lower temperature, making it safer to burn.  Soy candle wax burns cleaner with little soot released as the candle burns. Soy candles may accumulate some black soot on the jar, but the amount is much less than paraffin candles. Soy candles are also non-toxic, so they won't release toxins into the air as they burn.


The Royal Gift

To showcase South Australia, Inspired Candles were chosen to provide a gift of candles to the Royal Couple, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, for their visit on April 23rd 2014 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will continue to be inspired by their South Australian visit when back home at Kensington Palace, as they light their beautifully scented candles from local SA business -  Inspired Candles. 

The candles provided were 'Lemony', 'Iced Biscotti' and our limited edition 'Lotus Blossom' in honour of the Duchess celebrating her first Mother's Day 

A Quality Approach

At Inspired Candles our products undertake hours of testing and quality control. This ensures the candles you purchase always look stunning and are perfectly scented. 

We individually test all elements of the candles including jars, wicks, wax and scents to provide a premium hand poured soy candle.

We ensure we reach all our quality control criteria which include a strict and consistent commitment to achieve uniformity and perfection of all our products 

We're not happy unless you are happy!


Proudly Australian

We are passionate about our beautiful country, the people that surround us and the amazing lifestyle that being Australian gives us.  

We are committed to working alongside our stockists and customers to deliver a product that truly inspires.
