De Kayu - Handmade Soy Candles


We began our passion for candles, and started a boutique home-based business, when we realised it gets quite expensive to buy well-designed, eco-friendly and premium candles from today’s market. From there, in 2015 we established our brand as ‘De Kayu’ meaning ‘of wood’. We produce beautifully designed, natural candles that are honestly priced, with scents that evoke positive recall. Our candles are the result of years spent experimenting and crafting to create our range of fragrances and handmade candles.

The maker Melinda is a mother of one and has always loved  “making things" and being creative in her spare time. She has a passion for design and fragrances that elevate our well-being. We believe that happiness radiates like the fragrance and draws all good things towards us. Good scented candles should have a certain personality that makes people identify that particular scent with us.

We strive to keep the cost of our candles friendly for the customers and the planet by using natural, earthy materials and by reducing packaging waste, without compromising on the quality of our products. We also encourage our customers to recycle, so we offer 30% off for refill if you live locally in the Perth region.

We only produce in small batches, hand-pouring the wax in each jar/tin, hand-crafted and labelled. Our candles are usually not found in most mainstream outlets, as we are very selective as to where we stock our candles and we love to support a boutique & locally handmade shops. We believe that local businesses give a community its flavour.

We hope that you will love our candles and share with those around you. De Kayu candles are hand-made with love from our home to yours.

“Evoke your senses & Elevate your happiness”

Much Love
