The Inner Story of Innerfyre Co

I Am Loved scented candle in clear frosted jar and bronze lid with Innerfyre logo

The story begins with an innocent desire for a scented candle, and the abrupt realization that there weren't any wholesome candle products in the market that had any actual effect, other than looking and smelling good.

Hence, Innerfyre was conceptualized, soon introducing a range of affirmation candles and that really does the job.

Conventional candles have always used paraffin waxes derived from petroleum, which is not only non-renewable but also releases harmful chemicals when burned, potentially damaging your health and that of the environment.

We believe that creating beautiful, fragrant candles should not come at your expense or at the expense of the environment. That's why we place a strong emphasis on using sustainable and eco-friendly ingredients in making our candles and other mood-boosting products.

Innerfyre Co is Singapore’s first candle brand which uses a unique, sustainable wax blend made from coconut and rice bran wax. These plant-based waxes are not only better for the environment but also burn cleaner and longer, providing a more enjoyable candle-burning experience.

We aim to spread self-love through our candles, achieved with natural, captivating scent blends — like frankincense and myrrh. Scents are a crucial aspect of candle-making:

Many commercial candles rely on synthetic fragrances, which are unfortunately harmful to both human and environmental health, especially with prolonged exposure.

To mitigate this effect, Innerfyre exclusively uses pure essential oils and natural fragrance blends derived from plants, fruits, and flowers to infuse into their candles.

These natural scents not only smell divine but also offer therapeutic benefits, promoting relaxation and well-being.

In our mission towards sustainability, we endeavor to avoid single-use plastics and instead prioritize eco-friendly packaging, using recycled or recyclable materials whenever possible.

By choosing sustainable ingredients and practices, we are on the path to innovating a mindful and responsible candle-making process that not only nurtures creativity but also respects and protects our planet.

Step-by-Step Guide: How to Make a Candle

Creating a beautiful, fragrant candle from scratch may seem daunting, but with the right guidance and materials, it's a surprisingly simple and rewarding process. 

Here's a step-by-step guide to making your very own candle, courtesy of Innerfyre’s Candle-Making Workshop:

  1. Choose Your Wax: At Innerfyre, we craft our candles with a blend of coconut and rice bran wax. These ingredients are renewable, biodegradable, and safe to use; plus, they’re obtained from environmentally-responsible sources.
  2. Select Your Fragrance: This is where your creativity truly shines! Innerfyre provides a vast array of pure essential oils and natural fragrance blends, allowing you to create a scent that perfectly captures your desired ambiance. You can choose from floral, citrusy, earthy, or spicy aromas — plenty of options to explore.
  3. Prepare Your Vessel: Next, you'll choose your candle vessel – a container that will hold your wax and wick. Innerfyre offers stylish and eco-friendly containers for this purpose, such as recycled glass jars. You can even bring your own upcycled vessel for a truly personalized touch.
  4. Melt and Scent the Wax: Under the guidance of our skilled instructors, you'll learn how to safely melt the wax and incorporate your chosen fragrance. This step requires precision and attention to detail, ensuring the perfect blend of scent and wax consistency.
  5. Wick Placement and Pouring: Once your wax is melted and scented, it's time to carefully place the wick in your vessel and pour the liquid wax. Our instructors will help you ensure your wick is properly positioned and your candle is free from air bubbles or imperfections.
  6. Cooling and Intention Setting: As your candle cools and solidifies, you'll have the opportunity to add any final decorative touches, such as dried flowers or even personalized messages, leveling up your simple candle to a work of art. This time is also when you will explore intention setting, learning how to incorporate and manifest intentions with the candle you have just made.

Don’t Worry! Throughout the entire process, Innerfyre instructors will be on hand to provide guidance, answer questions, and ensure that you leave with a beautiful, handcrafted candle that you can proudly display or gift to someone special.

Promotes Creativity and Problem-Solving

The process of candle-making requires participants to think outside the box, experiment with different scents, colors, and designs, and find creative solutions to challenges that may arise. This stimulates creative thinking and problem-solving skills, which are invaluable in any professional setting.

Creative Candle-Making Tips

While the Innerfyre Candle-Making Workshop provides a nurturing environment for creativity, it's important to embrace your inner artist and let your imagination run wild, so you can make the most of your candle-making experience. 

Have you thought about how you can do this?

  • Don't be afraid to mix and match different essential oils and fragrance blends. Unexpected combinations can often lead to unique and captivating scents that reflect your personal style and preferences.
  • Candle-making is an art form, and like any art, it's the imperfections that make each creation truly unique. Embrace any small blemishes or irregularities in your candle, as they add character and charm.
  • Look to the natural world for inspiration; the colors, textures, and scents of flowers, herbs, and fruits can serve as a starting point for your candle design. Incorporate dried botanicals or natural dyes to create a truly organic masterpiece.
  • Your candle can be more than just a functional item — it can be a vessel for storytelling. Think about the emotions, memories, or experiences you want to evoke with your creation, and let that guide your design choices.
  • Don't be afraid to collaborate with fellow participants or seek feedback from our instructors during the workshop. Sharing ideas and perspectives can spark new creative directions and lead to unexpected breakthroughs.
