About Us


In 2017, WOODLIT CANDLES was created with a goal of bringing a healthier candle alternative than the big brand companies and at a more affordable price.
Have you ever walked into a candle store and got a headache after being there for only a few minutes? You ever wondered why? It’s because your common candle brands found in most stores are made from paraffin, petroleum, and even soy-paraffin blend waxes with chemical additives and synthetic fragrances. About 90% of candles sold are made from Paraffin wax, because it is cheaper to produce. WoodLit Candles’ ALL NATURAL PAIRINGS alleviates this typical problem.
Once our founder, Joshua Lennon, found out how unhealthy typical candles are, he realized that other companies that produced healthy alternative candles were quite expensive and unattainable for some consumers. That very day, he started laying the foundation of Woodlit Candles, an AFFORDABLE HEALTHIER OPTION FOR ALL TO ENJOY! 
Our products are locally hand-poured in Raleigh, NC. They are made from 100% all-natural soy wax, essential oils, natural fragrance oils and a wooden wick. That means no additives, chemicals, dyes, or zinc cored wicks. That's right, completely different than your typical scented candle! Here are some of the benefits of our 100% all-natural soy products:
    • Clean Burning- non-toxic, non-pollutant & non-carcinogenic. Producing 95% less soot than paraffin candles; easier on people with allergies and breathing problems.
    • Biodegradable- our wax is made from 100% vegetable by-product, accidental spills are easier to clean up.
    • Longer Lasting- soy wax has a lower melting point, which means it burns at lower degrees allowing you to enjoy your candle for almost twice as long as paraffin wax candle.
    • No lead or zinc cored wicks- all of our wicks are 100% all natural, non-treated wood. This produces a beautiful flickering flame with a soft crackling sound.
    • Environmentally friendly- soy wax and wood are both natural, renewable resources
