About Me

Wax & Flame is a 100% Indigenous owned and operated beeswax chandlery in South West Victoria, on the ancestral lands of the Girai wurrung people.

Chrystel is a proud Wiradjuri woman who loves celebrating the beauty of beeswax in it’s pure, natural form with no added oils or fragrances. Being genuinely handmade each candlestick is unique with variations in colour, shape and texture.

Let me fill your world with magical candlelight!

My name is Chrystel and I am the owner and maker behind Wax & Flame.

I specialise in creating classic beeswax candlesticks using traditional chandlery (candle making) skills. I’m passionate about keeping the lost art of hand dipped candles alive. These age old methods, combined with the raw beauty of natural beeswax, produce elegant taper candles which are a joy to use.

My wax studio is my happy place. Using my tailor made dipping frames I gently submerge each cotton wick over and over again until a beautifully formed candlestick takes shape. It’s an extremely calm and meditative process producing a clean burning, long lasting and drip free candle.

I believe something magical happens when a room is decorated with candlelight. The hypnotic dancing of a real flame has been a comfort to humans for thousands of years, yet lighting is often neglected in interior design. With their natural golden hue and bright light, beeswax candles easily work in any home decor by instantly adding a touch of luxury and warmth. Nothing can compare to the raw connection felt when burning authentic beeswax candles.
