My name is Amy and I have been making soy candles and wax melts since I received a candle making kit for Christmas in 2016. I decided to take my hobby and turn it into a business when I realised what I was making was alright! Having loved lovely smelling candles for many years, I knew what I liked and what was well made. So, I tested and practiced and learned more and more until I was ready to launch. I test every new scent before launching and quality is of huge importance to me.
Why Starlight? Well, pop culture is a huge influence on me and my life. I knew I had to incorporate this into my business and my brand. One of my favourite Muse songs is called Starlight. I knew Starlight would be a great name for a candle company and boom, The Starlight Candle Company was born.
I launched in June 2017 with a small scent list of candles. Shortly after, I launched our wax melt range - The Orion's Melt Collection.
The space theme continues to this day, as in 2019 I launched our wax melt monthly subscription box - The Full Moon Box.
I continue to try and improve and add to our product range as much as I can.
We make everything by hand with passion and love.
We care about the environment so all our packaging is recyclable and/or biodegradable.
Life is short - we want our products to make you smile!
We promote kindness and compassion in our community of Starlight fans.
