Hiya! My name is Britney and I am the sole owner of Flicker & Flame.
The Flicker & Flame journey started back in mid 2020 when I really wanted to start a hobby and a bit of a side hustle, with my love for candles it just totally made sense to start my candle journey!
Along with the candles also came diffusers and we have now moved into the wax melt range. We are forever introducing new products to fit our market so keep an eye out on our socials!
We are super proud to be supporting local businesses with the purchase of our supplies from mostly NZ companies but also reaching across the Tasman to our neighbours in Australia.
My main goal is always customer satisfaction - this means ensuring products arrive in a timely manner, arrive safely and make your space smell amazing!
Empty candle jar? Get in touch with us either by email or on our socials and we can refill them!
Candle jars purchased from us or purchased elsewhere... no worries!
Price is dependent on jar size/capacity.
We do request that when jars are sent to us they have been cleaned with warm soapy water and have had the previous wick removed.

Why Soy Wax?
The key features and benefits from the soy wax we use:
Made from 100% natural, plant based products making it vegan friendly.
Produces less soot than a paraffin wax candle.
Has an even and calm burn meaning it is longer lasting.
Great overall performance with scent throw.
Renewable and kind to the environment.
Where does soy wax actually come from?
Soy wax is derived from the oil of soybeans. After the soybeans are harvested, the beans are cleaned, cracked, dehulled, and rolled into flakes. It is from these flakes that the oil is extracted to then be hydrogenated. Hydrogenating oil is the process of converting some of its fatty acids from unsaturated to saturated, which raises the melting point of the oil to where it is a solid at room temperature.
