Whether it’s setting the mood for a dinner for two, creating a cozy vibe for enjoying that holiday romcom, or just warming up a room, candles are the ultimate “got your back” product. Set the tone this season with these vegan candle brands that are better than Bath & Body Works.

Vegan Candle Co.

We love Vegan Candle Co. for their non-GMO soy wax candles that are ethically sourced, clean, and sustainable in scents like Fireside, Smoky Bourbon, Mandarin Basil, and Coastal Pine. This LGBTQ-owned company also utilizes a plastic-free production process.

676 Candles Co.

Sanari Candle

Clean burning and crafted from essential oils, fragrances from Sanari Candle include Sorbetto (blood orange, coconut, & vanilla bean), Biscotti (vanilla bean, nutmeg, & cinnamon), Aria (sweet tangerine, ylan ylang, & lavender), and more.

Floral Street

Floral Street offers fine fragrances for the woman of today. Big, bold, beautiful, and strong, these scents are feminine without resorting to misogynistic marketing strategies or elitist price tags. We love the affordability and sustainability of the brand. Check out their mini scented candles in fragrances like vanilla bloom, wonderland bloom, midnight tulip, and more.

Floral Street

Paddywax

Creating mood-setting scents in containers that can be repurposed once the wax is gone, Paddwax levels up sustainable warmth. We’re not sure which is more appealing, the selection of fragrances (bergamot + mahogany, orange blossom, and salted blue agave, for starters) or the line of vessels the fragrances come in.
