About Us

Lillydale Candle Co is more than just the soy wax and fragrance oils that go into them. There is one special ingredient that goes into the making of each new scent, can you guess what it is? The special ingredient is ‘stories’.

Scents can tell a story, trigger a beautiful memory, take you back to a place and time, and create a feeling of warmth and cosiness in the home whether it be alone or together with family and friends. We hope to create and bring this ultimate experience and feeling into your home by lighting one of our candles.

Each candle is lovingly handcrafted by actual humans, by the same beating hearts and by the same pairs of hands (yes that's us, Bettina and Paul), we are a husband and wife team and we create our jars of soy wax goodness from our home studio located in Lilydale, the gateway to the Yarra Valley. For us it's about creating a product that has thought and care put into it and upholds the values of being utilitarian, small batch, handmade, quality over quantity and an aura of authenticity.

Our candles contain natural soy wax, a renewable, sustainable, plant based and clean-burning ingredient, as the base for all our candles. We melt the wax and mix Australian made phthalate-free fragrances in, and allow the candles to cure to completion. 

All our candle scents are inspired by personal nostalgic memories which resonate with us. Who doesn't love a good freshly baked vanilla scone fresh out of the oven with homemade strawberry jam mmm! We hope you enjoy our curated range of candles designed with minimalism and simplicity in mind to complement every style of home.

Keep browsing our website and buy a candle or two to support Australian makers, it would mean the world to us. Every time you buy a candle from our website, imagine two people doing a little happy dance (that's us) yay!

Love & Light,

Bettina and Paul
