Making Candles

Rak Candles is a small business run from Narrabeen in the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Primarily run by Aom with the assistance of my husband.

The business started as a hobby as we could not find the quality of candles we wanted. We love candles but hate the fact that getting quality candles can be very expensive and candles from overseas are generally of poor quality and don't have a great smell. We started with some hobby kits which quickly grew into wholesale production when our friends and family began demanding (in the kindest possible way) candles for gifts.

I am from a town in Thailand called Ubon Ratchatani where they hold the worlds biggest candle festival (see the Wikipedia article here ). The word Rak is also of Thai origin and it means love....Rak Candles - Love Candles. That is exactly what we do, we love our candles, we love making them and hope that you love them too.
