How did we choose?

We considered several factors when compiling this list of the best vegan candle brands. Not only did we look at quality and price, but we looked at company goals and social involvement.

In addition, a few of these brands go above and beyond in their mission.

We are very supportive of brands that have a positive impact on the world and do their part to make the world a better place.

Notice some missing brands?

We consciously left off a few brands that are vegan because they use paraffin wax in their candles. While paraffin wax is technically vegan, it is also a petroleum byproduct. When paraffin wax candles burn they release toxins that are known to cause cancer, among other things.

While Beeswax is natural, it is not vegan. We did not list any producers of beeswax candles on this article.

Did we miss something? Leave a comment down below and let us know what your favorite all-natural and vegan candle brands are.


You have a lot of great brands to choose from when looking for your next candle. Look for the scent you love and place an order and it is as easy as that. However, I prefer to support brands that also have a cause I can get behind.

Last but not least, if you are in the giving mood checkout #TeamTrees.

Carl Adamson

Hi, I'm Carl Adamson, one of the founders here at Candleers. A few years ago I got really into the art and craft of candle making, initially with soy wax container candles. My friends started asking me to make candles for them and pretty soon it turned into a nice side-business. I started this website as a way to document what I've learned over the past few years and hopefully help others in the process. I still love candle making but I'm learning that what I enjoy even more is the business side of things - and for this reason I've started consulting others on how to start and grow their own candle-making businesses and side-hustles.
