Lit Up Candle Co. was founded by two beer lovers with a candle-making problem on a mission to promote sustainability. Read more about us.
Our process starts by collecting empty beer bottles from local events and businesses, saving them from the landfill as the Atlanta area no longer recycles glass. After removing the labels, we use a 4-step cold-working process to repurpose the bottles into usable upcycled containers for our candles: first we use a wet saw to hand-cut the glass then we use the lapidary wheel to grind away any imperfections or chipping, pre-polish the now smooth edge and lastly polish it to add shine back onto the glass.
Then we give them new life as soy candles:
With a variety of collections and more than 20 fragrances to choose from, we have something for everyone:
We are dedicated to using locally sourced, eco-friendly materials to create our premium candles which are handcrafted with love in Decatur, GA in hopes that you enjoy them.
Reminiscent of a day at the spa and that fresh out-of-the-shower smell, these lovely clean fragrances are a perfect way to start and end your day.
Bring scents of the barn indoors with our equestrian-inspired candle collection. These horse candles make perfect gifts for horse lovers: English riders, Western riders, casual riders, trainers and girls who just love horses.
These equine-themed scents are sure to trigger fond memories: Hay Bale (freshly mown), Pine Bedding (clean, crisp pine shavings), Shoo Fly (fly-spray inspired citronella candles), Sweet Feed (well-balanced molasses) and Tack Box (fresh, new leather). All fragrances are available in 8 oz. upcycled beer bottle candles and 6 oz. 100% recyclable travel tin candles.
We dedicate this collection in memory of Jon Sonkin, our close personal friend and colleague who was the inspiration behind this collection. Jon was a long time eventer, he competed and trained as an English Rider for almost 20 years. He introduced us to the equestrian world and many incredible people we have the pleasure of working with. Jon was a beacon of kindness, dedication and unmatched friendship: his flame went out too soon but his bright light will never be forgotten.
Bright citrus oils of lemon and orange enhance the refreshing scent of natural lemongrass to stimulate and energize while calming.

OUR SOY CANDLES:
All of our candles are made with 100% all-natural soy wax, hand-poured in small batches and blended with the maximum ratio of fully-concentrated fragrance oil (almost double the recommended amount), to make the best smelling, long burning candles. We use a hemp wick because hemp is more sustainable than cotton and burns hotter to improve the fragrance throw.
8 OZ. BEER BOTTLE CANDLES:
Each beer bottle candle is handcrafted using upcycled beer bottles collected from local events and businesses. After cleaning the labels off, we use a 4-step cold-working process to repurpose the beer bottles into usable, upcycled containers for our candles: first we use a wet saw to hand-cut the glass then we use the lapidary wheel to grind away any imperfections or chipping, pre-polish the now smooth edge and lastly polish it to add shine back onto the glass.
