It all began when Kylie, the founder and sole proprietor of Folklore Candle Works, wanted to raise money for a choir trip to Ireland in 2015. She's always loved crafting and art and wanted to find a creative way to raise funds for the trip, but quickly fell in love with the art of candle making!
The original idea for Folklore was to create scents inspired by some of our favorite video game, film, literature and TV characters, as well as fantasy, cryptid and fairytale themed scents. Through the years, we've gone through many transformations and hurdles, and after a long hiatus between 2016 and 2020, we're so happy to be back.
Every product in our shop, from inception to picking fragrances to the design, is a labor of love. All of our candles and wax melts are 100% handmade with ethically sourced ingredients, including our pure soy wax, and all artwork and design is also done in house.
