Our candles are infused with premium grade fragrance oils, botanicals and essential oils and hand-poured in a small batch process to ensure quality and attention to detail. Each candle, from wicking to pouring to labeling, is created with the utmost care and precision. Oak + Amber candles provide a full sensory experience from their minimalist design and apothecary charm to the warm candlelight they provide and to the delicate, nature-inspired aromas that fill a room.


A candle is versatile, transformative and personal. The perfect addition to any home, office or travel location. The ideal housewarming gift or holiday favor. A candle has the ability to create comfort and evoke pleasant remembrances through the warmth of its flame or nostalgic aroma.

With great appreciation for the meaning our customers give our candles, Oak + Amber Candle Company combines it’s passion of hand-poured, artisan products with natural, eco-friendly ingredients that are long-lasting, non-toxic and clean burning.


Why 100% Soy Wax?

Many candles are made with paraffin wax or paraffin blends. The reason why paraffin wax is so widely used is that it holds and throws fragrance better and stronger than other vegetable-based waxes. Paraffin wax is made from bleaching and converting the sludge from petroleum barrels into wax. The issue with paraffin candles is that they release carcinogenic chemicals such as styrene, acetone, benzene, toluene, acetaldehyde, formaldehyde, acrolein, naphthalene, polychlorodibenzofurans and polyaromatic hydrocarbons when burned. Studies show that burning paraffin candles can cause respiratory problems and can aggravate asthma and lung or heart problems as well as damage ductwork and electrical appliances.

We use 100% all-natural soy wax because it is non-toxic and burns cleaner than paraffin. Soy emits no toxic petrol-carbon soot. Soy candles also burn about 30% to 50% longer than paraffin, or about 6-8 hours per ounce. Soy is a sustainable, renewable resource. The soy beans from which our wax is derived is domestically grown.

Why Lead Free Wicks?

The candle industry is rampant with toxic chemicals, waxes, and dyes. Many candles made cheaply abroad use lead core wicks that release harmful toxins into the air you breathe. A candle with a lead-core wick releases five times the amount of lead considered hazardous for children. Studies show that exposure to high amounts of lead has been linked to hormone disruption, behavioral problems, learning disabilities, and numerous other health problems. Lead core wicks were banned in the US in 2003, but many manufacturers in countries with little to no regulation still use them in candles that are imported into the United States.

The cotton core wicks we use are lead and zinc free. We use wicks constructed from natural flat cotton threads interwoven with paper threads that produce a rigid structure for easy pouring. The consistent flame and slight curl of our wicks work well with natural waxes and ensures an even burn.

Why Phthalate Free?

Phthalates are esters of phthalic acid used to dissolve raw materials when making fragrance oils. Studies show that high levels of phthalates can cause re- productive issues and birth defects such as increased risk of developing behavioral problems, premature birth, and respiratory difficulties in children with asthma.

We choose only to use components in our fragrances that are certified phthalate free to avoid posing any health risks to ourselves as manufacturers or our customers. We also opt not to use any dyes, additives, or preservatives in our candles as they may contain toxins as well.
