About Arya Candles
At Arya we create luxurious candles, made in Britain, with ethically sourced natural wax and the finest fragrance oils.
We're Lina & Jenny, the mother-daughter duo behind Arya Candles. We create our candles, by hand, in the heart of the Suffolk countryside. We are both passionate about empowering women, and about the environment. That is why we use wax from sustainable, ethical sources, and why we sponsor women from war-torn countries with sales of our candles.
One power cut, two creative minds, and several old candles - The idea behind Arya Candles came after we returned from a Cretan holiday at 3am to find a power outage and a cold home in early October, in the Suffolk countryside. The following two days we were reliant on candles for light and a gas burner for heating food. After running out of candles, we decided to create our own by recycling old wax.
As people who are passionate about all things natural – home products, skin care, food ingredients etc – we were very interested to find out more about how candles are made and more specifically, what they’re made from.
Arya Natural Ltd was born, and we both knew that we would strive towards creating ethical products, keeping them as natural as possible. We thoroughly research our ingredients and packaging, and never knowingly source anything unethical.
As two women who are passionate about women's rights, education and equality, we are sponsoring women from war-torn countries through a year-long program to rebuild their lives, via Women for Women International. By supporting us, you're also enabling women to learn about their human rights, health and skills they can turn into a business. You can learn more here.
We are very proud of our candles and will continue working to make them as natural as possible, whilst continuing our charity work with Women for Women International.
