Happy Flame Candles started four years ago when Anca and Peter Meredith started to research and develop the art of beeswax candles making in the Northern Rivers, near Byron Bay. It took two years to produce a range of 100% pure beeswax candles that burned perfectly without the aid of additives.
They were determined to make pure beeswax candles affordable for everyone because burning a beeswax candle has many health benefits. Research has shown that when you burn a beeswax candle it emits negative ions, which act as a “cleanser” for the surrounding air. Motivation also came when they learnt that the most commonly candle sold are made from paraffin wax. Paraffin is a byproduct of petroleum sludge and can contain up to 11 toxic compounds.
Their passion for quality hand made products is evident in every step of the candle making process. Each candle is either hand poured or hand rolled. Then each one is finished to exacting standards. This ensures they burn well, but they also look superb at all times.
