For us it’s important to follow sustainable principles in making our candles – all our products are made with 100% natural soy wax, recyclable materials, natural fragrance oils that are paraben free, contain no additives and they aren’t animal tested – this is fundamental to delivering a candle that is eco-friendly, smells nice and wont smoke.
We give our range some creative names and descriptions as we want a bit of our personality in every candle we lovingly hand make and hand pour.
All our candles are 180ml and have an average 24hr-30hr burn time.
Our Founder James Williams spent 20 years working in the music, food & drink and yachting industry’s.
This enabled him to travel to some wonderful locations, meet some remarkably interesting people and their attitudes to mood and taste some amazing foods along the way, all polished off with a cocktail or two!!!
In his spare time, he enjoys Song writing and performing, cooking, golf and being a dad to his 3-year-old daughter “Penelope Pitstop”
Being a chap from the West Country he also has a love of cider and all things rural.
A lot of the above is reflected in the range of wonderful scents and smells he has toiled over and developed for your enjoyment – all designed to remind you of “Tastes, Moods, Cocktails and Places” and there’s a little bit of his personality and “Ying and Yang in every can”
Our company was born in difficult times at the start of 2020. A rather nasty virus caused a worldwide pandemic and complete lockdown!!
As a society we shared collective side effects irrespective of whether you contracted it or not. We were all choking on a bit of smoke!!!
There were some amazing flames of positivity underneath it all though - it bought people closer, made us reflect and focus on what really mattered, gave us an opportunity to get creative, learn, be more supportive and giving, bring back a sense of community and make us all a little more resourceful.
Most importantly we had more of the time we all gave up for work, yet the money we earned from work could never buy us more time and we didn’t want this rare opportunity to go to waste……so we formed THE CANNED CANDLE COMPANY from our kitchen.
There’s the how, when or where we had unexpected time on our hands, it’s why our flames burn with fragrance and don’t smoke, and that’s the situation that caused us to suddenly create our “brand in a can.”
