Illuminations candles are made from the finest ingredients available, with unmatched craftsmanship. We use refined waxes that are classified as food-grade materials. Vegetable-derived ingredients are also used in our candles, but we do not use animal byproducts. Our wicks are made mostly of cotton and paper and do not contain lead.
Our candles are the most well-balanced, long-lasting candles you will ever discover and will burn impeccably when properly lit and maintained. If you'd like to know more about how to use our candles, we invite you to read the art of burning candles.
