Artisan Crafted 100% Pure Soy Candles. Highly Fragrant + Hand Poured in small batches out of Queens, New York.

Urban | Wanderlust is an independently owned candle manufacturing home-based shop in Queens, New York.

Our candles are handcrafted using American-grown pure soy wax, with eco-cotton wicks and phthalate-free fragrance oils for a clean burning experience. Each candle is carefully hand-poured and tested for best quality and freshness. Production is always kept small with 8-10 candles poured per batch. Our candles are free from all dyes, paraffins and additives.
Every step in the candle making process is done by my 2 hands: from wicking & labeling each jar, to cutting & tying bows, and stamping each box before it ships out. I love knowing that every single detail from beginning to end was made by me, with care for you!

Our Products:
- Natural Pure Soy Wax
- Biodegradable
- Clean Burning & Non-Toxic
- Free from Dyes, Paraffin, Additives
- 100% Eco-Cotton Wick, Free from Lead & Zinc
- Highly Fragrant
- Hand-poured

Thank you for supporting my small business!

Frequently asked questions

I hope everyone understands, I do not accept returns or exchanges.

If your candle arrives damaged due to a shipping error I will gladly replace it. Please contact me directly with your order number along photos of the damaged product and I will get back to you as soon as possible.


REMOVE - Any decorative items attached to your candle before burning.

THE FIRST BURN - When you first light your candle, allow it to burn for 1-2 hrs until the wax melts across the entire surface. This prevents tunneling and creates an even burn for the life of your candle.

GENERAL CARE - Always trim the wick to 1/4" prior to each burn (your candle’s wick will always come trimmed to size). We recommend burning no longer than 3-4 hours at a time for best results. If soot forms on the inside of your jar, blow out the flame, allow it to cool, then wipe clean. Keep the wax pool free of debris.


Use warm/hot water with some soap and gently wash the inside of your container. Leave upside down to dry and BOOM - you have a cute jar to use as you'd like!

- 100% Natural (made from USA grown soy beans)

- Does not produce toxic smoke making them indoor friendly and safer for everyone! 


Our candles are hand poured - not massed produced.

When using completely natural soy wax, sometimes you may notice darker patches or wet spots in your container candles.
This is not a fault, but simply a small area where the wax has not adhered to the glass 100% (called frosting).


We offer custom candles on an order by order basis, they're great for all occasions: Weddings Favors, Bridal & Baby Showers, Gift Baskets, Client Thank You Gifts and more!

Do you use artificial coloring in your candles?


Why do some candles have an off white or yellow tint if you do not use color?

Natural Soy wax is white in color. The fragrance blends that I use range from clear to light yellow. Fragrance oil may tint the soy wax producing an off white to yellowish wax color.

What are your wicks made of?

100% all natural braided cotton.
