We are Michael and Mark, aka The Bearded Candle Makers.
Our passion lies in creating intriguing scents based on stories and ideas, then carefully making them into perfectly burning candles. Being from Ireland we were brought up with and around stories, it only felt natural to bring that tradition into our candles. Scent has always intrigued us, even from a young age! If you were to see our old school books, all our stories and drawings were about smells and scent!
We feel that our approach to scent building puts us out in front of all other candle makers out there. There has been nothing new or exciting developed by any of the major candle houses in the last five years and this is where we come in.
By developing our own scent blending profiles and studying the science of candle making we truly believe our candles will smell amazing and last longer than their counter parts. We have literally tested thousands of different combinations of wicks with a range of natural waxes, in a range of different containers. As well as that we discovered most candle makers only use about 3 - 5% fragrance in their candles, we use 11%, which is the very most the wax can take. We do this because the scent is the most important part.
We are very passionate about what we do and love doing it.
Thanks for being part of our story.
It's all about the wax
The soy wax we use comes from sustainable soy farms in America. Many soy farms from other parts of the world are destroying rainforests to grow soy crops. Our soy suppliers are all family run farms with sustainable agriculture at their core. They are also Kosher certified farms to ensure they all meet the highest industry standards for hygiene and safety.
By choosing soy you are choosing to help support the environment as it is a healthily renewable resource as it can be replaced at the same rate and faster than it can be consumed. It is continually producible without damaging the ecosystem in which it is grown. Finally it is completely biodegradable.
Our soy candles contains NO: Palm wax, beeswax, pesticides OR herbicides. Guaranteed.
