Our Candles

Our Candles

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: 

  • We only use premium all-natural soy wax with our candles to ensure a clean, slow burn. Learn more about the benefits of soy wax
  • We use a lead-free hemp wick, which is more sustainable than cotton, and burns hotter providing a better fragrance throw when lit.
  • To ensure our candles have the best possible fragrance (both unlit and while burning) we use the maximum ratio of fragrance oil to soy wax (almost double the recommended amount)
  • We work directly with a perfumer to create the strongest multi-note scents.

With a variety of collections and more than 20 fragrances to choose from, we have something for everyone:

If you're specifically looking for bathroom candles, bedroom candles, kitchen candles or office candles we have recommendations for you. And any fragrance works well in your living space. 

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.
