About Tarn Candles

Tarn Candles is a family business producing handmade soy candles, wax melts & reed diffusers using pure essential oil blends. We create our unique products at a repurposed mill in Lancashire. Driven by an environmentally friendly ethos, many of our candles, melts and diffusers come with refill options - meaning you can reuse containers and create less waste. All good for the planet. We have also forged many wonderful collaborations with like-minded businesses, and now offer candle-making and other craft workshops at our Milnrow base to promote skills across the region.
