Amy’s Candles are 100% soy wax candles, made with phthalate free scented oils and infused with some essential oils, insuring a long, clean burn. They are made with cotton wicks, which are lead and zinc free. Each candle is lovingly poured in a recycled glass bottle that has been cut and sanded by hand. Each candle is unique and not always flawless. There are variations in sizes and shapes, the effects of curing too quickly can sometimes be visible. The burn time for 16oz candles is approximately 90 hours.
We’ve got a fresh new look and some new scents for Spring 2023.
We’ll be updating the web page within the next few days so be sure to check back. In the meantime you can pick up some of our favorites: Warm Ginger, Cardamom & Cream, White Birch, Fig Tree or Rosemary Lavender.
If your looking for a little peace and tranquility I recommend Breathe, Lavender Driftwood, Palo Santo or Sea Salt& Orchid.
Amy’s Candles started in my kitchen in 2013. Little did I know then that my holiday craft/gifts idea would be so well received. Perusing Pinterest I came across glass bottle cutting. I immediately cleaned up some wine bottles I had laying around, got my acetone and string. I boiled pots of water and made ice baths in my sink. Bottles exploded and imploded, some cut nicely, most had jagged little edges. Melting the wax in a double boiler on my kitchen stove was the easy part?
Flash forward a few years and I had streamlined the cutting process. I had gone through grinders and dremel tools, hand sanders, palm sanders, sheets and sheets of emery paper and arrived at my motor grinder. Improvements in production ensued.
These candles are so lovingly created. There is a great amount of work and time that goes into upcycling glass bottles. I take pride in each and every candle that I make; I often tell people that “a lot of love has gone into creating this candle.” From day one, I have loved making beautiful, eco-friendly candles and I trust that you will love my creations.
