About Us And Our Candles

Hello everyone, let me start by introducing myself, my name is Nadia. I'm a wife to an amazing husband, and mother to a handsome boy and a beautiful little girl. I'm also the founder and owner of Fiery Wicks Candle Co.

 

The idea of candle making first came to me at a Tim Horton's lineup (very Canadian, eh!) at the end of the year in 2019. At first I was making candles as a hobby for my mental health. It was my "me time". The whole process of weighing and measuring, and even wicking jars, is somehow very calming to me.

 

After months of experimentation with a lot of trial and error, what started as a hobby idea became a business idea, and here we are now, bringing Fiery Wicks Candle Co. to all of you online here and in local markets around Toronto.

Our candles are made with All-Natural Soy Wax and we use only Phthalate-Free Fragrance Oils. By doing so, we are helping contribute to the reduction of fossil fuel resources usage, as soy wax comes from a renewable source (soy beans), turning to a more sustainable and cleaner candle experience.

We operate from home and our candles are Hand Poured in small batches, always with a lot of Love and Care (yes, it's me pouring each one!).

It is our ultimate goal to provide you with the best candle experience -  from browsing, to purchasing and shipping, and finally to burning and enjoying your scented candle.

If you're not sure which scent you'd like to have in your home, I leave you with the recommendation of my three favourite ones: Roasted Espresso I like to burn in the kitchen, Sensual Amber for the living room, and Cucumber Melon for a nice, clean smell in the bathroom.

Have any questions, requests, or would love to have me at a market you're hosting?

Until then, stay well and happy candle burning!
