About us

Candles Amsterdam is a small candle business in The Netherlands. We are located in Amsterdam (of course) and make all our candles from home. After a period of learning, creating, and testing, we started our company in March 2022 with the idea to create eco-friendly decorative candles.

For our candles we only use natural Soywax, produced in Europe. This means that all our candles are sustainable and vegan! Furthermore, soy wax is odorless, does not contain any toxic substances and is 100% biodegradable.

All our candles are handmade of natural soy wax and therefore go through a frosting process. This means that there may be some small imperfections, and the appearance of our candles may also vary slightly from our photos. This makes every candle unique.


Our candles are mainly intended for decorative use but can certainly be lit. If you choose to light our candles, make sure to place it on a tray to catch the wax and cut the wick to 1 cm.

We recommend that you do not place the candles in direct sunlight and warm spaces. This is to avoid any sun damage and the candle melting in hot temperatures.


Side note: Pigments are at the expense of flammability of the candles. This means that colored candles ‘melts’ more and faster when placed in direct sunlight or hot rooms. Ivory colored candles tend to experience this to a lesser extend.
