📣 SMALL BUSINESS SHOUTOUT 📣: Burning Flame
Looking for premium 100% natural soy wax candles made locally? Burning Flame candles are all hand-poured in Halifax, Nova Scotia by artisan Lauren Burke.
Q: What's the story behind why you started your business?
It was March 2020. I was waitressing at The Keg here in Dartmouth and my industry had entirely shut down. I had a young boy to feed so I quickly got creative on ways to make money during that time when nobody knew what was going on.
Burning Flame Candle Company was brought to light by helping channel my persistent desire to create. I started selling candles through Instagram and would do deliveries with my car. I never imagined this business would evolve into what it is today.
Fast forward to 2023 Burning Flame Candle Company is thriving.
Q: What can customers expect?
All Burning Flame Candle Company products are proudly handcrafted in Halifax, NS by artisan and Entrepreneur Lauren Burke. Our candles are made from premium 100% natural soy wax and are free of toxins and chemicals such as petroleum, phthalates, parabens and paraffins. Soy candles are becoming the preferred choice of eco-conscious consumers because they burn clean and last much longer than petroleum-based paraffin wax candles.
Our focus is premium products, exceptional customer service and an opportunity for people to collaborate and think outside the box.
We specialize in Custom Candle Collaboration. Our candles are perfect for weddings, Realtors, private label, corporate branding, gift-giving, fundraising opportunities and more. Clients can customize almost anything, with the end result being their own personal aromatic experience.
We have collaborated with a number of well-known local businesses across Atlantic Canada, including East Coast Lifestyle, Coldstream Clear Distilleries, The Coffee Pro, East Coast Kicks, Underground Snax, Ashburn Golf Club, Marchand Homes, Chisholm Group, Keyes Insurance, Parks Health Shop, The Pilates Barre, and many more.
Imagine designing a unique fragrance and label for your wedding guests, or gifting your real estate clients with a branded candle to enjoy in their new home — if you can dream it, Burning Flame can help realize it.
