About

Welcome to my candle world!

Here's my story.
After 13 years in different art schools (yes, I have bachelor degree of glass art) I met my man and decided to make a break. I even tried become a gardening :)
In 2001, very unexpectedly, an old friend called to ask, "Could you make some candles for my shop?"
Since then, candles live in my mind! Each day I search for unique ways to create beautiful candles. First I made gel candles and oil lamps with decorations inside. But mostly I searched different ways to make shaped, decorative hand poured candle. One inspiration was traditional Japanese candles. These hand painted flowers look so simple and so beautiful. I tried hundreds of different paints and waxes until I found the one's I now use and am absolutely satisfied. Now I can offer you great looking, perfect burning handmade candles. No any machines are involved in this process.
I use food-grade paraffin wax, pure cotton wicks and the best quality dyes for candle making.
Every candle is hand painted with care and love.

I love to spend time in the meadows and forests collecting all those things – birch barks, acorns, moss, chestnuts and snail shells. And more pleasure to create candles from it – so pure and natural gifts. I love to use materials for my candles, that we usually throw out – orange and kiwi peels, eggshells. I love to create small cute peaces for cozy and eco friendly home.

It's a big pleasure to make Your home more beautiful and cozy!



Sincerely ,
Asta from LessCandles.

Frequently asked questions

How to safely burn a candle?

*Place the candle in holder, on stable, heat-resistant surface.
*Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations.
*Always keep the candle within your sight. If you are going to leave the room, be sure to first extinguish all candles. Never go to sleep with a candle left burning.
*Place candles at least ten centimeters (10 cm) apart from one another, as the heat from one candle can actually melt the outside of an adjacent candle causing the melted wax to spill out.
*Never blow on the candle to extinguish the flame, as this could cause hot wax to splatter.
*Don't touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
