Andy & Caitlynfounders Founded on the principles of quality, passion & honesty; Backwater Candles was born in 2019 in the kitchen of our home outside of Belfast, N.I. Simple. Honest. A Lot of Heart L ets get back to basics where less is more. The Backwater Candle Co. is a soy candle company in Belfast, Northern Ireland that began in August 2019. Our goal is to produce sustainable, long-lasting, luxury candles that are earth friendly. While our passion is in our product, our vision is in our community. Each Backwater candle is thoughtfully hand-poured in small batches using all-natural soy wax, high quality phthalate free fragrance oils, pure essential oils and unique crackling wood wicks. Our luxurious, earth friendly candles are paraffin wax, palm wax, lead and zinc free. They are clean burning with no lid to throw away and a jar that can be re-purposed or reused. We are proud to create products that are both vegan and cruelty-free. This makes Backwater Candles a much friendlier choice to burn in your home. We are a community based small business and donate £1 from every Backwater candle to a local not for profit organization that supports neglected children and youth in Northern Ireland.
