About Handmade Ciao Candles


Soy-based candles offer soft, natural lighting with none of the dangers associated with burning materials such as paraffin wax. Instead of ditching candles altogether in the name of health, you may want to consider switching to soy candles the next time you’re looking for a little mood lighting.


Number 1

Our candles are all natural and eco-friendly. You can feel good every time you light a Ciao Candle as our wax is made from soybeans, an all natural and renewable source grown all over the world.

Cleaner Burning

Number 2

Soy wax burns cleaner than paraffin wax, with little soot released as the candle burns. Additionally, soy candles are non-toxic meaning no toxins are released into the air as the candles burn.

Longer Lasting

Number 3

Soy wax has a lower melting point, so our candles typically last longer. On average our Ciao Candles last 25 hours or longer, giving you plenty hours of enjoyment.

Better Scent

Number 4

Soy wax candles burn slower, the fragrance oils we use to build the scent is released more gradually than traditional candles, providing a pleasant atmosphere for the duration of the candle.

Our Story

Welcome to Ciao Candles, all natural and eco-friendly soy wax candles lovingly handmade and hand-poured by me, Luisa, in beautiful Kent, United Kingdom.

With my Italian background in mind, the name “Ciao Candles” seemed like the obvious choice for my love of candle making – Hello Candles! Candle making has always been a passion and lifetime hobby of mine.

As candle making became more and more part of my life, I started testing various types of waxes such as paraffin and soy wax, and came to the conclusion that not only is soy wax natural and eco-friendly, it also gives the best finish and result.

All Ciao Candles are delivered in our signature copper 250 ml tin, our wicks are made from waxed paper and cotton and all scents are from premium fragrance oils. Throughout the year, when I’m not busy making candles, you can find me attending various arts and crafts fairs throughout the United Kingdom. Thank you for taking the time to visit my site, I hope you enjoy your Ciao Candles as much as I do!
