About – Avows


Avows candles is more than just a candle company.
Our mission is to boldly share the love and goodness of God

How it all started…

Avows comes from the word avow, which means to assert openly and our aim is to boldly share the love and goodness of God.

Avows initially started as a creative escape from a very busy work-life as a doctor in the NHS. I always loved how a candle could transform the environment through the scent and the light it creates. So during the pandemic I decided to try making candles for myself and my passion for it grew.

In todays’ society we can be so busy and distracted with things that are not always important and this can take us away from the things that really matter. One of the most important things for me is my faith in God and I loved the idea of sharing my faith through scents. Scent is a powerful stimulus that can trigger memories more than any other sense. Knowing this, I wanted to fuse my new passion with something meaningful. The idea is that smelling the different fragrances will associate with the name of the candle and allow you to remember the sentiment behind it.

Each candle is carefully named based on what the bible says. Through these scents, I hope you will be encouraged and be reminded of what the bible says in a world that can be so noisy with so many other thoughts.

Good for you

Here at avows candle company we believe that we should be kind to ourselves, so we ensure that only quality ingredients, that are cruelty-free and gentle for us, are used. That includes;
Soy wax: Usually candles sold in the commercial market are made from paraffin wax, a product of crude oil. We use soy wax, which is a natural and renewable source that is kinder to you when it burns as it doesn’t release any toxins.
Phthalate free fragrance oils – Phthalates are a group of chemicals commonly seen in a lot of fragrance oils that can potentially be harmful to our health. We’ve steered clear of this with our fragrance oils and do our best to ensure our candles are as safe to for you to use.
Cotton wicks – we use cotton wicks that have been entwined with a thread of paper to ensure that there is a good even burn.
