About Himalayan Handmade Candles

Taking inspiration from the unexpected, the vintage, the distressed..bygone times define our candle collection. Fragrances are complex and layered, designed to evoke a particular time and place, triggered by memories and nostalgia.

Himalayan Candles makes beautifully fragranced candles in reusable original containers. Our candles are poured using artisan techniques with a natural soy wax blend and high quality essential and fragrance oils. They will burn exceptionally well..a clean even burn with minimal sooting, leaving little to no residue and a lingering fragrance.

Our candles are hand made and packaged at our studio in Decatur, Georgia. We offer a competitively paid, pleasant and flexible working environment to our candle makers, packers and shipping staff. We also work directly with small scale manufactures in northern India and source our containers directly. We only work with factories that have transparent and fair working conditions for their staff.

The company was started in 2004 by Julia Leaphart in her kitchen. It was founded as a way for her to connect with a childhood spent in a small town in the foot hills of the Himalayas and a need to earn a living for herself and her young daughter. She began pouring candles into wooden containers bought from India and selling them at local antique shows and craft fairs. The company grew from there as it found its niche selling high quality artisan candles.
