Take a moment to take it slow

At vlam · van · an we hope to inspire people to take moments to wind life down and practice self care. With this, the ritual of lighting a candle and making yourself comfortable, becomes the starting point of taking time to care for yourself, your own needs and finding what feels good.

Next to self care, taking care of this wonderful planet is also very important to us. This is why we’ve made sure that every candle is vegan, cruelty free and zero-waste. To make them we use all locally grown soy bean wax, sustainable candle supplies and high quality pure essential oils. Next to that all of our packaging is plastic free and recyclable.

We also take pride in the fact that we design our own unique fragrance blends and pour all candles by hand in our small atelier in Groningen, The Netherlands. Yet our modern, luxe look makes every vlam · van · an candle complement contemporary interiors all over the planet. From urban jungles to minimalist, a vlam · van · an candle will make your house feel like home.

What does ‘vlam · van · an’ mean?

Our name, ‘vlam · van · an’ is dutch for ‘a flame from an’ or ‘love an’. As the owner, Anna, started out making candles for her friends and family (who call her ‘an’ all the time) she saw them as a gift from her and labelled her candles with this name. It stuck because loads of people loved the name so much and we love the personal touch it gives!

What makes soy candles sustainable?

Soy wax is a renewable source and biodegradable. Unlike most used wax, parrafin, that is made out of petroleum aka the same stuff gasoline and plastic comes from. Plus, we only use soy wax that’s 100% natural and locally grown under European laws and standards.

Doesn’t soy contribute to the deforestation of the Amazone?

The deforestation of the Amazon is 80% caused by the need to produce soy for animal feed. The soy beans that are used to make our soy wax is grown in Europe by European laws and standards. So yes, soy does contribute to the deforestation of the Amazone, but not our soy.
