Manufacture is primarily Tumbler style glass, using Libbey Glass Chicago 30cL tumblers, however all glassware is available for producing candles in Lidded Jars or Bowls, with multiple wicking if required.
Candle Boxes and label printing can be provided, but can involves minimum order levels of 50+ units, depending on the label/box specifications
For Enquiries please advise quantities required, fragrance required, container style, are silver lids or covers required, will you be providing your own labels and boxes.
As Soy wax is a natural product, we always recommend that larger requirements are split into smaller consignments to keep the product fresh and multiple or call off orders of 4-6 dozen per shipment are recommended.

Like most companies our preference for container candles is mineral container wax, we use chandler grey Pro C or similar which has a low melting point of around 40-45 Celcius, which with our specially made container wicks, with a cotton core, for high tempertaure burning, allows us to obtain a full diameter melt pool after 60 minutes burn time, thereby producing a excellent scent throw. 

Couple this with a good quality fragrance oil that is not made of alcohol, then you have the makings of a excellent scented candle, something which appears to elude many candlemakers, regardless of what they pay for the fragrance oils.

We have access to thousands of fragrance oils, so it is important to give us some idea of preferences, in the absence of fragrance details we can offer the following inhouse fragrances, which are made especially and only for the Norfolk Candle Company, these are listed below and are blend of synthetic and essentials oils produced solely for candle making. We shall be producing mini candle testers of these fragrances and making them available in our webstore allowing customers to try a sample before placing larger orders. Prices beside fragrance are unit costs Exc Vat for 30cl Chicago, 45 hour burn approx with standard Pro C wax with 5% ratio of fragrance oil , based on order of 50 units minimum, In addition shall be costs for own label, boxes, higher oil content and lids if required, plus shipping and delivery charges.
