TNT Candles was established in 2015 by life-long friends Claire Simmons and Tabitha Taylor. Our candles are made in batches of six, using only natural ingredients. We are committed to a product that is simple and pure, which is carried through to our packaging. We strive to create unique products and original scents for our customers to indulge in.


TNT Candles is a micro-batch aromatherapy soy candle company based in Nova Scotia. Our hand poured candles are made using GMO-free soy wax and are scented with 100% essential oils. TNT Candles are designed with care for the conscious consumer. Their subtle scent quality allows them to be used by customers who are overwhelmed by traditionally fragranced candles. Soy candles release essential oils gradually so there is no immediate wave of strong scent. This creates a  more pleasant atmosphere for most people. 

All of our candles are made using EcoSoya Wax®, a natural vegan product that provides a cleaner burn than paraffin. Soy wax candles burn cleaner and release much less soot than paraffin candles. They are a slow burning candle that can be enjoyed for up to 72 hours.

Essential oils are naturally occurring substances derived from nature. They are used in aromatherapy to enhance mood and to relieve symptoms of stress. Our candles contain no artificial substances, which allows them to be enjoyed by people with sensitivities to synthetic products.
