We make beautiful handmade crafted candles, that have a rustic charm and are made using superior quality natural and certified organic ingredients. Our candles are non-toxic and environmentally friendly.
We DO NOT use any of the following ingredients in making our candles:

We make our premium candles using traditional methods in small batches that enable us to give each candle we make our special care and attention.
Each beautiful candle is made in London, England and is hand poured and finished. A timeless classic suitable for any home or occasion. Our ethos is to make our candles simple and just use nature’s ingredients and we do not make any scented candles.
In the Beginning
We wanted to know what ingredients are used to make candles that are generally sold in shops and major department stores on the high street and the Internet. We soon discovered that both expensive and inexpensive candles that we had used in our home were potentially made from harmful toxic chemicals like low grade paraffin wax, synthetic fragrance oils, synthetic colourants, chemical additives and candle wicks with a metal core – all which can affect the respiratory system and contribute to very poor air quality. Generally candles that are made of low grade paraffin wax, release toxins which are the same as fumes found in diesel fuel.
So after plenty of research we decided to make our own unique handmade candles and wicks made from natural cotton and blended in one of our certified waxes. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
We use natural and certified organic ingredients to make our candles and nothing else. We do not add any colour or additives to our candle wax. Our ethos is to make our candles simple and just use nature’s ingredients.
Certified Organic – Candle Wax Blends
We make two different types of candle wax by blending together certified organic beeswax with either certified organic premium 100% raw coconut oil or certified organic unfiltered virgin olive oil.
The beeswax is a high quality, unbleached, unrefined organic yellow beeswax from the EU and comes from the European honey bee Apis Mellifera. It is a natural wax which is made by bees in the cell walls of honeycombs.
The coconut oil is extracted from the finest organically grown coconuts and cold pressed to preserve its superb qualities and purity, also it is NOT hydrogenated, refined, bleached or deodorised and is non-GM.
The olive oil is unfiltered organic virgin olive oil. It is first press, the olive oil is cloudy soon after crushing and before final filtration and is more natural. This oil has more superior sensory characteristics compared to filtered olive oil because it is less processed.
Natural Cotton – Candle Wick
We prepare our own candle wicks. The candle wick is made from 100% natural cotton and primed in one of our own blend of certified organic waxes which makes them burn clean and exceptionally bright.
Our candle wax ingredients are certified organic by the Soil Association in the United Kingdom or Certification of Environmental Standards (CERES) or the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Bella Luce do eventually would like to apply for certification for our beautiful candles to the Soil Association in the UK.
