Wicks Of Water Orton About Us

Candle Shop

Our Story...

I'm Donna and I hand pour our range of natural soy wax candles and wax melts.

In 2015 I gave birth to my daughter.  Within a few hours we found out that she had a critical heart disease.  She underwent numerous open heart surgeries and procedures and when 13 months old, we were finally discharged from Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

Whilst resident with my daughter I was also made redundant. So when returning home, my husband had bought me a candle making kit. He decided I would need a hobby... and he was so right! I absolutely loved it. It didn’t take me long to discover soy wax, which is a much cleaner and safer alternative to paraffin wax, and soy is also safe to burn around my daughter. I started to make for myself, then family and friends, and before I knew it Wicks Of Water Orton was born.​

We are now an established business, offering a full range of natural Home Fragrance products.  We are Award Winning, notably scooping an #SBS award from Theo Pahitis in July 2019.
