My name is Molly and I have been making candles for over ten years. What started as a hobby has slowly evolved into a small business thanks to a lot of positive feedback from the candles I gave as gifts. I started Hulu candles with my friend Rachel and the rest is history!
Part of our candle journey, which included lots of testing waxes, wicks, containers and fragrances and endless trial and error, involved creating a brand. We chose the name Hulu because it is and ancient Chinese word meaning a container or a gourd that held something precious or special. We wanted to create a brand with a big personatliy and we felt the labelling was the way to make Hulu candles unique. We have had so much positive feedback about our candle labels and here is why.
We have been lucky enough to partner with an amazing designer called Kate Jenkins from KaloolaJay Studio who has created a very unique style for Hulu. All of our core fragrances, whether it be candles or wax melts, carry a KalloolaJay and Hulu collaboration label. You will not find candles like ours anywhere else. So what makes us stand out from the crowd? Passionately hand crafted , wonderfully fragrant, environmentally friendly candles with a unique style all of their own.
As well as candles all of our fragrances are available as wax melts. Both our candles and wax melts are made with soy wax which we chose to work with because it is kinder to the environment than cheaper paraffin. We hope you enjoy our candles and melts as much as we enjoy making them.
Check out all of our candles and wax melts in our candle store.
Soy has a lower melting point than paraffin so the candles burn and last a little longer. Each of our candles in the online shop has an appoximate burn time as a rough guide. The wax melts will throw out fragrance for hours and you get 12 hearts in each pack. All of our candles and melts have a high fragrance load and so they offer great value for money.
Yes. All of our candles and melts are made with 100% soy as we believe it is a great eco friendly alterative to paraffin and is cleaner buring in your home.
Yes. Our fragrances are all vegan and animal friendly and approved by the International Fragrance Association (IFRA). If you are concerned about burning candles you could consider using wax melts with an electric melter.
