Where to Buy Hints and Tips

In 1992 Chester Candles realized it's humble beginnings when candle maker, Judy Parsons, decided to turn her many years of crafting candles as a hobby into a full-time business. Joined by her partner, Bill Drane, who lends his talents creating and designing the original molds for the Hurricane Candle line, together have strived to make the best candles possible.

Most of our candles are fragrance-free - Scented candles are still very popular and we carry a selection of aroma therapy votives scented with essential oils. To find out how any candle can be scented with the fragrance of your choice check out our Hints and Tips section.

Chester Candles uses only the finest quality waxes available. Where our candles require cored wicks we use only paper - never lead. Before we market our candles we also test them to ensure that they will burn properly and safely. We handle all of the work from concept to finished product. Great care is taken in developing our unique candles - our Lighthouse Hurricanes took 2 years from concept to market. The Atlantic coast has given us many years of enjoyment and has proven to be a major source for inspiration and some of the materials you will find used in our products.

Each candle receives careful hands on treatment from start to finish. Beautiful colours and excellent quality make our candles look good day and night.
