CIRCA Home Candles Review - Jaki's Top Picks
Modern life is fast. Communication is harried. We're constantly 'on-the-go' and the boundaries between work and home are blurred for many of us.
CIRCA Home Candles are an easy and affordable antidote to modern life. They instantly add warmth and a calm ambience to your home. They help you relax and recharge after the chaos of the day.
I am a long time fan of burning a scented candle at home. The delicate scent of the candle is a form of aromatherapy for me. Meanwhile, the flickering flame makes my home feel like a haven.
Join me for my CIRCA Home Candles review below. I'll answer the questions that I'm commonly asked as well as share with you my top 5 picks for Circa Candles at home.
Where are CIRCA Home Candles made?
CIRCA Home Candles are made in Sydney, Australia! They are made with natural soy wax and lead-free cotton wicks. They are scented with high quality fragrant oils which smell heavenly. It feels good knowing that these clean burning candles are free from toxic ingredients.
Are CIRCA Candles Soy?
Yes, CIRCA Candles are soy candles. They are natural soy wax candles, which means that the wax burns slower and your candle will last longer compared to traditional paraffin candles. The burn is also cleaner with soy wax.
How to get the most out of Candles
- Keep wicks trimmed with a CIRCA Home wick trimmer. This will prevent soot from forming on the glass.
- Burn the 350g candle for more than 1 hr but less than 4 hrs at a time. Burn the mini candle (60g) for more than 1/2 hr but less than 2 hrs.
- Re-center your wick after each burn.
- Don't place the candle in a draughty area.
- Keep the candle lid cover when not in use to avoid a dust build up.

Experiment at Home with Layered Candle Scents
Create your own signature scent by burning two candles next to each other. There's no right or wrong combination - it totally comes down to your personal preference.
I love combining a traditional scent such as Lychee and Rose candle with a fruity scent such as the Mango and Papaya Candle. This creates a fresh and beautiful smell, like a garden in full bloom during spring and summer.
In the cooler months, I like to pair the Lychee and Rose candle with an earthy, spicy scent such as the Amber and Sandalwood Candle. This creates an ambience that is rich, warm and grounding.
