After the interest in my Cruelty Free Indigenous Beauty and Wellness Brands in Australia blog post, I have decided to do a series of posts about Indigenous owned brands so that you can support them. Today I am covering Indigenous candle brands. As with my last post, I have tried to find as many brands as I could but this isn’t a comprehensive list of all the brands out there.
Before I continue with this post, I would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people who are the traditional custodians of the land on which I live, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. I would also like to pay my respects to Elders past, present and emerging of the Kulin nation, and I extend that respect to other Indigenous people who are reading this.
I contacted all the brands in this post to ensure that they are Indigenous owned and that they are happy to be mentioned in this blog post. I haven’t had the time to check the cruelty free status of these brands as I wanted to get this post up in time for Christmas. Some of the brands in this post were featured in my Indigenous Beauty and Wellness blog post, so those brands are cruelty free.
This post isn’t a review of any of these brands as I haven’t tried most of them. I do however have a matte black soy candle from the Jyelah Mind and Body Vogue Collection in Blackberry Fig, which smells lovely. You can see photos of that candle throughout this post.

That’s all the Indigenous candle brands that I was able to find, if you know of more, please leave their info in a comment so that I can contact them and add them to the list. If you are looking for essential oils, you can find those in my Cruelty Free Indigenous Beauty and Wellness Brands blog post. I have more brands to add to that post, so I will update it soon. If you find these sorts of posts helpful, please let me know so that I can continue doing them. I have a very long list of Indigenous owned brands that I am continually adding to. I am trying to break the list down by category to make it more manageable for me to write the blog posts. If there is a particular category, like clothing, accessories, food or homewares that you would like to see next, let me know. In the mean time, you can sign up to email updates to get my new blog posts sent to your inbox. You can also find me on social media – Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.
Have you tried any candles from these brands? Will you be buying some in the future?
