Authentic Candleology products are currently sold only through and our Etsy store.


Candleology was created by our founder, Yulia Akulova. Here is how Yulia tells the story of her inspiration to create this brand:

When I was a child I used to watch my father working with bees and beeswax, as he had a small apiary. He taught me all about wonderful benefits of beeswax. I even made my first candles from the extra beeswax under his guidance.

A few years later I decided to try candle making on my own. Now with children, I was on the lookout for natural crafts that would be safe and chemical-free, as well as fun.

Candleology products were created as result of my passion, knowledge and creativeness in candle making. I have collected the best materials and candle recipes in my candle making kits to make it fun, easy and joyful for both adults and children.

Our kits consist of unique, 100% natural and eco-friendly ingredients. Step-by-step creative and detailed instructions are made by me and tested by kids. I hope you’ll enjoy this wonderful hobby just like me!
