G Candles: These Vegan Candles Are Too Beautiful To Burn

September 25th, 2020 at 10:42 am

The first thing we can’t wait to do when we bring home a candle is light it up that night and bask in the calming candlelight. It’s our favorite way to unwind – the soothing scents melting the day away as we enter a relaxing rest-and-recovery mode.

With G Candles, the intricate designs have us thinking twice about burning the beautifully crafted bodies – instead, we look forward to decorating our dressing tables with these chic pieces that make for a captivating centerpiece.

G Candles was founded by Ghazal, an Iranian architect living in Malaysia with an affinity for art. She’s been making candles for years, but what started as a hobby, to spruce up her home and spoil her loved ones, became a profitable passion project during the MCO – like many others, Ghazal started a business from her own kitchen.

How did you come up with the distinctive design?

I’ve always appreciated the beauty of the human body – all shapes, sizes and appearances. Everyone’s uniqueness always catches my eye, so to me, the human body is the best work of art.

Other than the design, what else makes your candles special?

When I was trying to figure out how I could separate my brand from the others, I realised that love was the key ingredient – I hand-pour my candles and spend hours experimenting with the colours, so I feel very connected to them.

Many people overlook the ingredients of a candle because they aren’t being consumed. Why is it important to know what’s inside of them?

Many candles contain paraffin wax and the hydrocarbon mixture is actually harmful for the environment. I produce natural, vegan candles out of soy wax, which is cleaner and safer for both your health and the environment – thankfully, bigger candle brands are shifting to soy wax and non-toxic blends.

It has become increasingly important for businesses to be more sustainable. How else have you been practicing sustainability?

We safely deliver our organic candles in plastic-free packaging.

If you’re looking to add more allure to your space, a candle from G Candles would be the perfect piece of décor – or get it as a glamorous gift! Her best-sellers are the sultry black and millennial pink, but customers are able to customise their candles with luxurious scents, dazzling designs and bright colours. She recently added a male torso candle to diversify her collection.
