About Gweni


Welcome to our online shop of candles, melts, and room diffusers! You will also find a range of products that will enable you to be an expert candle keeper, and melt burner!

We are really proud of what we produce, and are so happy to be able to offer them to you. We believe that our selection of candles and reed diffusers are the best on the market. Whether you like floral or fresh scents, mild or musky, you are sure to find something that you will love!

We began by making candles in recycled jam cars, with floral paper tops! Those days seem like a long time ago, but they were popular and people loved the scents and how well they burnt. So we experimented, and got ‘hooked’ on candle making

Each of our candles, melts, and diffusers are made with care, by hand and in small batches. We believe that this enables us to produce items of a high quality, that you will cherish and love.

We use soy wax in all our candles. Here’s why!

Did you know that paraffin wax comes from paraffin which is a bi-product of the petro chemical industry; paraffin is derived from the detritus from oil barrels. Compare that to soy plants which are natural, sustainable and environmentally friendly. It’s a no-brainer, really.

Soy wax candles also tend to burn slower and longer than paraffin candles, and, it is argued, produce a better scent throw due to their slow burning nature.

The team

‘We’ are led by myself, Amanda. I like to bake, to make, to paint, to draw, to run, to chat, to read, to take photographs, to be in my native Pembrokeshire, to walk my dogs, and to relax by burning my own fantastic candles!

The name ‘Gweni’ is a tribute to my gorgeous little niece, Gwen, who is showing great promise of being as addicted to candles as us, albeit only 6 years old!  She and her little sister, Catrin,  love sniffing the new makes!Coincidentally, ‘gwenu’ (slightly different spelling) means ‘to smile’ in Welsh, which is rather apt as these candles and diffusers certainly make us smile!

Best wishes,
