What inspired you to start Halo Candles?
We believe that in this over stimulated world we live in, it is so important to enjoy the simple pleasures in life like watching a sunrise or sunset or listening to your favourite tune. So we were inspired to create an exquisite range of candles that would encourage conscious living, to make time for yourself, and to live your best life!
What makes your candles different?
Our candles really have the WOW factor! Not only do they present beautifully in a contemporary glass jar with a silver foil logo and sophisticated carton featuring silver foiling, but they also smell good enough to eat! The glass jar is recyclable and we use only the highest quality natural soy wax, 100% lead free cotton wicks and vegan friendly fragrances that have not been tested on animals, are free from parabens, PEGS and contain no animal by-products. We are also proudly 100% Australian owned and made.
What is the candle making process like? Do you make the candles yourself?
Yes, we make them right here in WA and we just love the process of making candles! Seeing the end result of each delicately hand poured candle is very rewarding and being surrounded by the beautiful fragrances is just another added bonus!
How do you decide what scents to create?
A scented candle is like a personal fragrance, so we have carefully selected a variety of scents to cater for all candle lovers
What has been the biggest challenge thus far with starting a new business?
Our biggest challenge was creating our brand, as it was very important for us to connect with people at an emotional level. We really wanted our customers to feel good when they buy our candles and thus far we are delighted with the feedback.
I am sure that you can all agree candles make you home feel snuggly and smell delicious! If you need to restock like I do or you would just like to try one of these gorgeous candles use the code pep17 for free shipping (valid until 22/8/17).
