about us

We are bombarded with so many chemicals in our daily lives. A few years ago, I was looking for a way to reduce, if not eliminate unnecessary chemicals from my home. Believe me, Being a candle addict didn’t help! Most candles are either made of toxic Paraffin or genetically modified Soy. Additionally, synthetically fragranced candles cause allergic reactions and poor air quality.

 

Not wanting to give up entirely, I decided to make my own candles and started experimenting at home. My guiding lights were my love for handmade, respect for the planet and a passion for perfection. I invested in natural and organic (whenever possible) raw materials. An year of trial and error with different waxes, wicks and fragrances ensued. In the end, I was able to create a candle that looked beautiful, burnt properly, smelled good and was completely safe to burn around my children. My friends loved it and encouraged me to sell. This is how Palm Lights was born!

 

Each candle is a unique piece of art because no two pieces look exactly the same, thanks to the natural feather and snowflake pattern of palm wax. A lot of effort goes into handcrafting these candles. Each candle takes about 10-12 hours to make and a couple of days to cure. I use only authentic and transparent ingredients (no nasties or color stabilizers), which bring wellness. This is what makes it worth to be lit around you.
Enter the sensual world of light and fragrance, at the flick of a match!

Why PALM WAX?

Fell in love with Palm wax the first time I saw it create natural beautiful crystalline patterns on the surface of the candle. Palm wax production is clean and uses no harmful solvents or catalysts. It is composed of vegetable fatty acids, particularly triglycerides, separated out of palm oil under extreme temperate fluctuations and pressure.

Certified Sustainable Palm wax is more expensive than regular palm wax but we think it’s a small price to pay to encourage small- scale farmers.

Essential Oils Vs Fragrance oils

Why Essential Oils?

At Palm Lights, I work only with 100% aromatherapy grade essential oils. Essential oils(EO) are aromatic essence of certain plants, trees, fruits, flowers, herbs, and spices. These oils have been traditionally distilled since 4000BC. Closer at home, I grew up seeing and using essential oils as an alternative source of healing. Steam inhalations with Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils to clear congestion, Lavender essential oil for cuts and bruises, Chamomile for digestion and sleep; there was a healing EO for everything. Is it any wonder that it became my first choice to scent the candles?

I wanted to share the power and therapeutic effects of these natural oils. A strong sense of smell and an intuitive knowledge of blends were my guide. After experimenting for months, I was able to create stabilized recipes of hand-blended oils. I source only the purest, most ethically viable, sustainably farmed essential oils. Although pure essential oils are rare and expensive, they result in clean burning candles.

  • Steam distilled and cold pressed oils only
  • Strong fragrance till the very last burn
  • No over-harvested oils
  • Wild crafted wherever possible
  • No animal derived fragrances like Civet, Musk or Ambergris
  • Cruelty-free
