Meet the Maker

Riau Candle Company is a women's empowerment program run by The Seed Basket.  The Seed Basket empowers the whole community with small business kick start grants, clean water programs, nutritional support to vulnerable children, and creating accessible health care. They operate the candle company with fair trade principles providing a safe and empowering place of work for the women of Riau. Each candle sale supports the variety of programs The Seed Basket operates.

After you've enjoyed the wonderful aroma of your candle, you can order another online. But don't throw that canister away; wash it thoroughly, so no wax remains internally. Then find a use for it; with its minimalistic style, it looks great just as it is on a bookshelf or with a cluster of jars.

Get creative, too; use it as a pen canister or a small pot for a succulent plant.  ( Hint: Having no drainage hole in the glass means I would avoid plants with a high need for water and drainage.)

Given there may be residual wax or oils in the canister after washing, we suggest you avoid repurposing it for use with food or drinking liquids.

Our offer to you and supporting a sustainable future

If you cannot find a use for the empty glass, you can send it back to us, and we will give you free shipping on your replacement candle.

Include your order number and up to date contact email so we can send you your unique free shipping code.

We will be repurposing the canister for you, so keep your eyes out for how. It will be happening when we get enough to be able to create another excellent product from them!

Three candles sizes are available in all fragrances. More popular candles have a fourth candle option: double wick.

A slow burn cotton wick, zinc and lead-free.

Essential oil and soy wax.

We love the look, fragrance and ambience of our Riau Company Candles. The essential oil fragrances are divine and last for such a long time. The soy wax and fresh cotton wick are natural, and you can repeatedly use the frosted glass canister. 

Keep you and your family safe while enjoying your candle for longer.

  • Trim the wick to 6mm (the width of your pinkie finger) each time before burning
  • Keep wax pool free of debris. Using a proper gas candle lighter can help avoid those pesky burnt matches falling in the wax.
  • Burn your candle on a level heat resistant surface for no longer than 3 hours.
  • Avoid drafts, as they make the candle burn quick, cause uneven wax melting, and increase your fire risk.
  • Stop burning the candle when 15 mm of unmelted wax remains.
  • Never touch or move a hot or burning candle.
  • Never use liquid to extinguish the candle.

Please stay safe and heed this WARNING.

  • Keep burning candle in view.
  • Keep the candle away from things that catch fire.
  • Keep away from children and pets.
