Handcrafted Quality

Handcrafted Quality

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.

We manufacture and hand pour all our home fragrance products in small batches and load them with 10% organic fragrance oil (almost double the recommended amount).

UPCYCLED BOTTLES
We use a 4-step, cold-working process to upcycle beer and wine bottles into handcrafted candle containers:

1) hand cut the bottle using a wet tile saw
2) sand away imperfections and chipping using a flat lap
3) pre-polish the sanded edge
4) polish the smooth edge to add shine on the glass

ECO-FRIENDLY & NATURAL MATERIALS
We use 100% all-natural soy wax due to its many benefits:

  • non-toxic & carcinogen free
  • soot free & biodegradable
  • made from soy beans, a renewable and sustainable resource
  • lasts up to 50% longer than paraffin wax

We use lead-free hemp wicks because hemp is eco-friendly, much more sustainable than cotton, and burns hotter which helps release the fragrance and improve scent throw.

ORGANIC FRAGRANCES
We work directly with our perfumer to develop our wide selection of exclusive, complex scents. All our fragrance oils are 100% organic, phthalate free, paraben free, gluten free, cruelty free, vegan and IFRA compliant.

Our scents are grouped into 8 collections by fragrance type. With 25 diverse fragrances to choose from, we have something for everyone:
