Where Should You Buy Candles?

Candles are such an important element in a home. Lighting one can feel like a form of self care. But the amount of choices there are when it comes to candles, can feel extremely overwhelming. But it can also be fun to discover new candles that you’ve never tried before. So where should you buy your candles from? We’re going to give you a list of popular places to find candles, and what you can expect from their candle selection.

Farmers Markets
Farmers Markets are a great place to find handmade, all natural candles. It’s also a great way to support a local small business and make connections with people in your area. Local candle makers typically use higher quality ingredients in their candles. This means they use less fillers and chemicals than mass produced brands. Which is great because they won’t release as much soot or toxic ingredients into the air. Keep in mind that small businesses are paying more for high quality ingredients. This means their candles will most likely come with a higher price point.

T.J. Maxx

This is a popular place to find a wide variety of candles. They will vary in size, color, scent and quality. Price point here is usually super affordable. This is great news if you’re a candle hoarder like most candle lovers are. You can find everything from paraffin wax , soy wax, coconut wax candles and more. If you’re unsure about a brand or the ingredients in the candle, keep your phone nearby to do a quick google search before you commit to a purchase.

This is another popular place for candle browsing and shopping. Considering the quality of the candles you can find at Anthropologie, the price point is fair. Not to mention the gorgeous jars and vessels there are to choose from. Anthropologie carries some of the most aesthetically pleasing candles out there. Which is always a plus if you consider your candles to be just as important as your other home decor. You can usually always find something here to go with whatever vibe and style you like.

Etsy is a great one stop shop for any kind of candle you can imagine. Jar candles, pillar candles, taper candles, and more. You can also find a candle made of whatever wax type you prefer. And of course the scent and color options are endless. There are a lot of small business Etsy shops with great reviews, so you can definitely find a shop you’re able to trust. Price point varies, so there is something for everyone. Not only do we have our own website but we sell on Etsy as well.

Bath & Body Works
This might be one of the most popular places to buy candles. They always have a great sale and are very affordable to begin with.

They have scents you can buy all year round, and then seasonal ones that are available for a limited time. Even though the quality of these candles isn’t the best, they are still one of the biggest candle retailers in the world.

Though there are many more stores and brands we could list, we hope this info has given you a better idea of where you might make your next candle purchase. There is something for everyone, no matter your preference or budget.
