Welcome to Three Wicks Candles!
It’s not just a candle, it’s a memory waiting to be made
If you take a moment and think about it, candles are at the center of life’s most precious memories.
We use candles for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and family gatherings. Candles symbolize coming together through hope, faith, romance, and at life’s end the, continuation of the spirit.
The flickering of candlelight creates a sparkling effect that many people find comforting, calming and relaxing while the smell of a candle can invoke special memories of loved ones. For me, that’s Baker’s Daughter, one of my fall scents. My parents owned a bakery in Whitby, Ontario for years and this fresh bread smelling candle just brings me back to my childhood and days of working together in the bakery as a family.
When I set out on this journey of starting my business, I made the decision that I wanted to make a clean burning candle that would be eco-friendly and as natural as possible. After much research I settled on soy wax because it offers an alternative to traditional candles that are typically full of toxins. Making sure my candles are made from 100% soy wax with no added colour, phthalate free, paraffin free, with wicks that are lead free, and made in recyclable vessels is very important to me for the future of my daughters.
I’m Diane, the face behind the brand. I currently have a full-time career in the healthcare industry but after 30 + years of service I will soon retire. I wanted to find something that would keep me busy once I retire, that has meaning to me and will be something that provides customers with an experience that invokes family memories. Family is very important to me, so much so that I named Three Wicks after my three daughters, who are the light of my life. They are my pillars of strength and inspire me every day to strive for more.
In small batches I hand pour all candles from my home in Courtice, Ontario. I ensure every candle is of top quality and ready for you to start making your own memories.
Thank you for supporting my small business.
