THE WICK CHICK
We came across these beautiful Australian made Soy candles which are highly fragranced, colourful and individually hand poured.
The Wick Chick hand makes soy candles, which are available in travel tins, aromatic, melts and tea lights. All candles are made from 100% natural eco-soy wax, a product derived from soy beans, which is non toxic and burns at a low temperature. This ensures that the candles burn slower and the scent permeates throughout your home for a longer period of time.
All candles are 5-10% scented oil concentration and melts are 12% scented oil concentration, one of which is the highest on the market. It is from the liquid scent pool in which a superior scent throw is achieved.
Unlike paraffin waxes, a derivative from petroleum, soy wax is non-toxic and better for the environment and us! Palm wax is said to be sustainable but people love Orangutans, and seeing them in their natural environment, which is slowly being destroyed. It's not proven that Palm wax is 100% sustainable.
The Wick Chick’s aim is to have an elegant, practical and yet affordable product that customers can enjoy themselves or give them as gifts to loved ones, family and friends.

Where do you get your inspiration?
"We gain our inspiration from our family, friends and customers, many of which have become friends. We listen as these are the people who not only love our products but continue to purchase our beautiful candles. Looking after and being aware of our environment for my grandchildren is most important to me."
What has been your favourite piece and why?
"Our favourite piece is our travel tins. When we started producing these, nobody else was offering them and we feel that they are more robust. They travel well and can be sent overseas and postage is affordable due to their size. They make beautiful presents and surprises to send to family, loved one or friends, in far away lands."
What is your favourite material to work with?
"Natural eco-soy wax is beautiful as it can also be used as a moisturiser on your hands and massaged into your feet, leaving them feeling soft and smelling beautiful! Our colours are so bright and lift your spirits, and the fragrances are a great variety, of spicy, citrus, fruity and florals."
If you were to expand your product range to something entirely different, what would it be?
"We have introduced Himalayan salt lamps! These are not only of great benefit to your health, but look amazing when lit as they illuminate beautifully in your home. We are always looking for unique and special products."
Describe your products in three words...
