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.
Enhance your mind and spirit with the aromatic properties of natural plants, flowers and grasses.
Aromatherapy candles infuse many health benefits: lavender candles provide soothing stress relief, induce relaxation, improve quality and length of sleep and help with insomnia; eucalyptus candles are energizing and help improve focus; lemon verbena candles help you remain focused and open your mind to absorbing and retaining information.
Fresh cut bamboo swirled with rich, exotic black ginger on a warm bed of woody notes completes this complex and enticing fragrance.

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.
