Who Are We?

Hot Wax Newcastle is a brand new independent lifestyle brand, based here in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

We create scented candles with a difference.

Our candles are made with soy wax, which is 100% natural and vegan-friendly, unlike typical candles which are made with paraffin (yuck!).

To complement our natural wax, each candle is awesomely gift wrapped in our eco-friendly packaging. We’ve sourced fully recycled materials to house our product, which is in turn recycled again by the end user – you!

We might not be able to change the world, but we like to do our bit and protecting the planet is one of our core values. We believe it’s possible to create beautiful products without destroying mother nature.

In a world of globalisation and megalomaniacs, it’s great to shop local and turn your attention to smaller, independent retailers . Our candles are hand-poured in small batches, not mass-produced in a factory. This means each and every one of our little jars of joy are as individual and unique as you are.

We source natural essential oils that you can use to lift or enhance your mood. Whether it’s eucalyptus for relaxing, or Oriental lime to create a fragrant space, each oil is carefully selected. Whichever scent you choose, you can be sure it’ll be amazing.

They’re perfect as a little self-care treat for yourself or as a warm and thoughtful gift to show someone you’re thinking of them.

If you have any questions about our products, please use the contact form.We’re a small family-business based near the banks of the River Tyne, a couple of miles from Newcastle upon Tyne, where great things happen! Hot Wax Newcastle.

Hi you!

What a rollercoaster of a week we’ve had.  

We’ve loved every second and seeing so many orders come through has made us giddy! We can’t thank you enough.

We’ve learned so much this week, especially about which candle scents have been the most popular.  It just shows that what you think will be a favourite v’s what actually is, can be so different!

Here’s what our customers have purchased this week:


We’ve also received some amazing feedback, here’s just a few snippets:

Sam (West Sussex) 

“… I have been burning my candle for the last hour and can honestly say the whole of my house smells delightful.  I will be ordering more.”

Teresa (Newcastle)

 “Delighted with my candles. Handmade locally, beautifully packaged and delivered.  The most amazing scents in Purify and Sun -Drench”

Rachel (North Tyneside)

Wine tastes better with an amazing candle… Thank you, Hotwax.”

What’s next for Hot Wax?  Here in the North East, we’ve been teased with a couple of beautiful days, which has really reminded us that Summer is just around the corner (it really is!).  With that in mind, we’ve already started working on our summer scents and we’re really excited to launch them. Don’t forget to subscribe to our mailing list & we’ll make sure you’re the first hear about them!

 With Independent Woman’s day being on Monday and Mother’s Day (Sunday 14th March 2021) just around the corner, now is the perfect time to get your hands on one of our candles.

Have a lovely weekend!

Love, Team Hot Wax xoxo
