OUR 100 % NATURAL WAX

The alchemy of creating high quality natural candles is based on passion for quality ingredients and artisanal finesse to symbolise a different sensorial experience. Each candle carries with it creative freedom.

AK candles are made with high quality natural blends of coconut, rapeseed, soy and beeswaxes for a greater scented pleasure and a better place to live. Our candles are slow burning and considered the healthiest for people as they are smokeless and sootless. Rapeseed is a bright yellow flowering plant that is sustainable, renewable, and greener alternative to mineral wax.

The best for a gorgeous smelling-home.
