About Us

Who We Are

We founded Classical Candle Co. with one goal in mind: to create candles inspired by history. We use new and used containers to bring you candles that will remind you of the lives and times of the past.

​New for 2022, our candles will be released throughout the year on a seasonal basis. This means that all candles will be limited to certain months of the year. We have decided take our business in this direction to avoid waste and create excitement for our customers throughout the year.

We may be a company that focuses on the past but we do all that we can to consider the future and our impact on the environment. That is why we are so keen to reuse objects, often bought from charity shops in our Relics Collection.

We are also taking steps to ensure that our packaging is as environmentally friendly as possible- you might find that your parcel may arrive in a box we have recycled for example.

We also have a forest with Ecologi where trees are planted all over the world to offset our environmental impact. 

We are also proud to say that we use only sustainable soy wax in all of our candles, which along with our fragrance oils, are vegan and cruelty-free.



Owner and Candle Maker

At the beginning of 2020 Liz was working in theatre but like so many others she has had the time to pursue other passions and thus Classical Candle co. was born. 


Liz loves history in particular the Ancient world and the Tudors. She is also in love with Italy and one day wants to live in Venice!
