At Arbor Made, we set out to create a candle that is better for you and the environment.

The Problem

Unfortunately, most of these single-use candles are thrown away every day.

Meaning millions of candles, often made with toxic paraffin wax and harmful synthetic fragrances, are piling up in landfills and polluting our ecosystems.

With the average candle person buying nine candles per year, we are excited to offer candle lovers a more sustainable alternative!

A Reusable Candle Jar

We created the world's first reusable candle jar, with an innovative and patent pending design that makes it easy for you to reuse and refill over and over again. We also offer custom zero-waste wax refills.

With sustainability at the core of our mission, we made no sacrifices when it came to creating the most sustainable candle on the market.

Each scent we offer is directly aligned with a charity that supports the planet.

To source reputable charities and ensure full transparency, we have partnered with 1% for the Planet.
