Top 10 Coconut Candle Companies in the U.K.

Created by: Pew York | Published on: September 1, 2021

The way people make candles have changed a lot during the years and we now focus on more natural sources.

I've noticed that there are a lot of prestigious brands all over the world, especially in the U.K.

They focused a lot on quality over quantity and with my experience, I can assure you they are doing a good job.

I managed to compile a list of the top 10 candle companies in the U.K. and the qualities they have will differ.

It took some time to dig them out but I can say they are some of the most reputable in the state.

Shenzhen Coconutio LLC

  • Location: Shenzhen
  • Company type: manufacturing, wholesale
  • Year founded: 2009
  • The number of employees: 50
  • Main product: coconut bowls
  • Other products: coconut wax, coconut carving bowls, coconut candle bowls

With almost 13 years of experience, we managed to bring Coconutio to the top for coconut products. I'm pleased to say that our candles are high-quality and we have a lot of satisfied clients. Everything is handmade from natural resources.

Our products are most popular among the environmental protection community. But, also other people that like to have these types of items in their household. One of the advantages is that they don't smell like coconut and you can add your favorite fragrance.

Cocomoon

  • Location: Norwich, U.K.
  • Company type: manufacturing, wholesale
  • Year founded: 2017
  • The number of employees: 2-10
  • Main product: coconut candles
  • Other products: gift candles

The reason why Cocomoon is one of the most reputable companies is that they are in the industry for a long time. Even though they started in 2017, their origin was even in the Victorian era. They switched from being a family craft into a professional enterprise.

I saw that their candles are from coconut wax, unlike some wholesalers. Large companies choose soy because it is less expensive but the quality drops also. The moon is the inspiration for the black and white glass they use.

Shearer Candles

  • Location: Glasgow, GB
  • Company type: manufacturing, wholesale, export
  • Year founded:  1897
  • The number of employees: 11-50
  • Main product: candles
  • Other products: coconut candles

Shearer Candles is the oldest company in the U.K. when it comes to these products. The family-run the business until 1972 when the Barnet family took over. They are working with some of the best restaurants and hotels.

Being in the business for a long period, they adapted to the changes that happened in the past years. Their quality is still top-notch and they are sticking to high standard materials.

EcoScent

  • Location: London
  • Company type: wholesale, marketing, manufacturing
  • Year founded: 2008
  • The number of employees: 11-50
  • Main product: private label candles
  • Other products: room sprays, reed diffusers

One thing that makes this company different is that they focus on marketing a lot. Their goal is to help you please your customers by remembering great experiences. I've noticed that they will make the candles and label them in your name which you can give to the customers.

They made me believe that candles are one of the best ways to show the clients you care about them. With a great design and smell, you can make a positive impact that sticks. I like the way they are using these products for promotional purposes.

Sunday of London

  • Location: Hackney Wick, U.K.
  • Company type: wholesale, manufacturing
  • Year founded: 2019
  • The number of employees: 1-10
  • Main product: coconut candles
  • Other products: Fine Mists and Diffusers

I found out that they used to handpick wild herbs and botanicals that they used for their products. In the beginning, they made soaps, teas, and salves. Later on, they moved to natural fragrances and build a workshop in Hackney Wick.

Their candles are vegan and they produce the product in the United Kingdom. I also noticed that they focus on coconuts that are GMO-free to make candles and essential oils. They make every part of their product in the U.K. even glass cider bottles.

Aloha Coconut

  • Location: London
  • Company type: wholesale, manufacturing
  • Year founded: 2018
  • The number of employees: 1-10
  • Main product: coconut candles
  • Other products: candles

From how much I can see, this company is not able to produce large batches. But, they have an idea behind coconut products which is to bring them to European homes. They are using the shells that others would throw away and they make a unique shape for each candle.

They have a few collections including Japanese, perfume-inspired, tropical, and coconut. They make every piece on the same principle with different wax and fragrance.

Candles Naturally

  • Location: Southampton, U.K.
  • Company type: wholesale, manufacturing
  • Year founded: 2007
  • The number of employees: 2-10
  • Main product: coconut candles
  • Other products: essential oil diffusers, candle accessories

What I like about Candles Naturally is that they have a wide variety of products on their website. Besides working with coconuts, they have bamboo candles and other traditional materials. Some of them include natural beeswax and soy wax.

I still consider coconut and bamboo a better option because soy products are of bad quality. They also have accessories you can use for the candles like holders and lanterns. They offer all shapes and sizes so there's a lot to choose from.

HUTWOODS

  • Location: Australia, British heritage
  • Company type: wholesale, manufacturing
  • Year founded: 2013
  • The number of employees: 1-10
  • Main product: wood wick candles
  • Other products: coconut candles, reed diffusers

I know Hutwoods from Australia but I found out that they have British origin. They describe the products as encouragement for people to invest in themselves. Their main focus is on the wood wick soy candles.

But, all their items have good quality which came from 8 years of experience. What makes them different is that they don't use 100% coconut wax, instead, they are mixing it with soy. The quality may be lower but it's easier for production.

The Candle Brand

  • Location: Norwich, U.K.
  • Company type: wholesale, manufacturing
  • Year founded: 2018
  • The number of employees: 2-10
  • Main product: candles
  • Other products: wax melts, flower diffusers, gift sets

A company that is only 3 years old, they made a great reputation in the industry. This is because they use traditional methods and are a family business. They make each piece from natural materials and with a unique design.

They want you to recognize them as something that can affect interior styling. I'm familiar with the coconut and rapeseed wax mixture they use which is better than using soy. They are also less expensive compared to some of the older brands.

Ethel & Co

  • Location: Nottingham, U.K.
  • Company type: wholesale, manufacturing
  • Year founded: 2020
  • The number of employees: 2-10
  • Main product: candles
  • Other products: gift boxes

One of the newest in the industry, Ethel & Corina are looking more towards number as a wholesaler. This is beneficial to those that are looking to distribute as much as they can. Cocosoy mixture is their main choice but I think that sticking to one source is better.

I'm more about 100% coconut mixtures because of their quality and accessibility. Most of their products come in small sizes but can burn up to 40 hours.
