Raw Beauty Box's hand-poured soy candles

Feeling down? Need a pick-me-up? Look no further than scented candles! At Raw Beauty Box, we believe that having the right scented candle in your home is necessary for good vibes. Not only do candles create a warm and inviting atmosphere, but the right fragrance can also have a positive effect on your mood and well-being. Join us on a journey through the world of scented candles in Australia and discover the power of aromatherapy for yourself.


We’re passionate about offering high-quality, sustainable products that are both ethical and environmentally friendly. That’s why we use only the best ingredients in our hand-poured soy candles. Soy wax is a natural, renewable, biodegradable resource and burns cleaner than other waxes. Unlike paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum, soy wax is non-toxic and doesn’t release harmful chemicals into the air when burned. You’ll be soy, soy glad (…okay we tried) when you make the switch to our soy wax candles!


Why settle for a basic candle when you can have a Raw Beauty Box candle? With a burn time of up to 48 hours, vegan-friendly ingredients, and no palm oil or paraffin wax, our candles are the real deal. Plus, they’re Aussie-made and owned, supporting local businesses and Mother Nature.


The do’s and don’ts of candle shopping


When it comes to buying the best fragrance candles, it’s best to avoid the following:


  • Paraffin wax
  • Lead-core wicks
  • Harsh fragrance oils
  • Short burn times
  • Manufactured candles (which typically release more soot)

Instead, look for the following:

  • Soy or natural-based wax
  • Cotton or wood wicks
  • Essential oil or essential oil blends
  • 48+ hour burn times
  • Hand-poured soy candles
