This is my go-to fall candle each year (teakwood + cardamom), and it's wonderful. It arrives expertly wrapped, and the materials used -- from the wax to the glass to the labeling -- is all quality and lovely. Highly recommend these candles and this seller!

Amazing to do business with. I love the little wood scoops that the salts come with.

These salts smell amazing! I got the clove and citrus and the winterberry and they are wonderful. Winterberry got me into a great Christmas mood! Molten was able to combine shipping for multiple items at a discount too. Great experience, I will be buying again!

Hand-crafted soy candles and apothecary

I started making soy candles in mid-2011 after being unsatisfied with most commercially-made candles I found on the market. I wanted a natural product that was generously fragrance with nice, clean lines. Nine months later Molten was born.

Alongside candle making I started experimenting with mineral bath soaks and room sprays. I am delighted to be offering these new products starting Fall 2012.

    I love wonderful smelling things! That combined with my need to keep my hands occupied brought me to candle making. I am passionate about these and love the process of making each and every one!

Molten is my passion and was born from the desire to create clean burning, wonderful smelling soy candles at a fair price. They are made with pure, 100% natural soybeans from domestically grown crops. Biodegradable, renewable, and I think in every way superior to paraffin candles. Let me know what you think - I value your feedback and strive to create a wonderful experience.
