I'm Lauren and I established The Natural Flame in 2013. I started making candles as a creative outlet which allowed the opportunity to relax and take time out from a busy working life in the hospitality world. After several years of testing and making for family and friends, stemming from a love of fragrances and home décor, The Natural Flame was born offering small batch handmade soy candles, melts and diffusers. I hand pour all products in my Melbourne home studio. A big believer in sustainability, I actively source distinctive and quality pieces for my candles, with the intention it can be re-used or re-purposed once the candle has finished. I believe the jars are too special to throw away!
