Questions? Fire away.

How can you tell if a candle is good quality?

When it comes to choosing the best candles Australia has to offer, it’s important to look beyond labels and price tags. While cost is often a good indicator of quality, it’s not the only factor that you should be looking at when perusing a candle shop online or in-store.

You can recognise a quality candle by the way that it burns. Our candles are characterised by a slow burn with a calm, steady flame that allows the candle to burn down evenly and all the way down. Here are some important things to consider:

Burn time: A high-quality candle will burn for a long time and at an even rate. If you’re burning through candles (pardon the pun) in a few hours, then you’re not getting your money’s worth.

Wax: Candle wax texture and finish is a strong indicator of quality. The wax of a candle should be smooth and clean, with no impurities, cracks or rough spots on the surface. This ensures that the candle will melt evenly and consistently as it burns.

Our candles are a subtle addition to any room or any occasion. We design our candles to burn brighter, longer, and cleaner.

What wax do you use in your candles?

When it comes to choosing the right wax, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. We use different wax types for different candles to ensure that we get the best result. Some of the most popular wax types that we use in our candles include:

  • Coconut wax
  • Haze wax
  • Mineral wax
  • Rice bran wax
  • Plant-based wax

You can check out the ‘specifications’ tab on the different product pages on our website to find which wax is used to create each candle. 

Are your candles vegan friendly?

They sure are. We exclusively use plant-based and mineral waxes in our candles, along with 100% cotton wicks, and we do not use any materials that are derived from animals. This means that all our candles are vegan friendly.

How are your candles packaged?

As a society, we have a complicated relationship with packaging and pollution. At Candle Kiosk, we’re not interested in adding to the pollution in our world, which is why we make our packaging out of 100% recycled paper.

From the box to the protective buffers inside it, our packaging is made from recycled and recyclable materials (paper, not plastic), to ensure that we are not adding to the plastic waste in landfills and oceans. Our candles are individually wrapped in tissue paper and are shipped to you carbon neutral so that they arrive undamaged, without damaging our planet.

Where do you ship?

We ship our candles all over Australia, with free shipping on orders of $99 or more. All orders are dispatched the next business day, if not quicker.

Candles can be heavy yet fragile. To get your order to you as safely, efficiently and quickly as possible, we use a door-to-door courier service. Once your order is placed, you will receive a despatch notification with tracking details.

Candle Kiosk vs. the rest – why choose us?

We specialise in creating high-quality candles that add style and character to any space they light up. Even when they're not lit :) Because we focus on candles and don't have to divide our attention across other categories, we can spend more time refining our candle offering and innovating our product line. We are one of only a few dedicated candle shops in Australia.

We are constantly innovating and investing in research and development to ensure that we are offering the best range and the best quality candles in Australia. We’re in it for the long run, so you can be sure that you’re getting candles that are backed by rigorous testing and after-purchase support.

Are your candles tested and certified?

You bet. At Candle Kiosk, we take quality seriously, which is why all of our candles have passed Australia’s important safety tests:

  • Standard Specification for Fire Safety for Candles (ASTM F-2417)
  • Australia Mandatory Standard for Candles with Wicks (Trade Practices Act 1974, Consumer Protection Notice No. 7 of 2002)
