Since the beginning of 2017, Octō proudly pour all of their candles by hand in their London studio.
They manually blend and pour them using only the best, all-natural ingredients. Everything in their collection is cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. Octō candles are 100% natural. Made with soy wax, they are blended at the perfect temperature with pure essential oils (no artificial fragrance oils) and cotton or wooden wicks, without synthetic or chemical nasties.
Only a tiny crew manages every part of the candle-making process, and everything is done with extreme care and attention to detail.
Meet the Founders
With a passion for candles and the cosy memories they evoke,
Octō candles were born with the aim of creating natural,
affordable and original candles. Ieva and François are
managing every aspect of the candle making and have been
loving every step of their journey. The range now consists of amber
jar candles with cotton wicks, clear jars with wood wicks, tea lights, reed diffusors and more.
Since they have been making their own candles, there hasn’t
been a day without burning them. Ieva says, that you have to
truly love what you do and make, in order to offer it to others.
How right she is!
