We found this by chance whilst driving out of Nimbin. The staff are super friendly and not pushy for a sale! Watching them work is fascinating and the prices are reasonable! The setting is beautiful, well worth a visit!

Such a cool little groovy place that is so beautiful to look at. It shows you how they make candles and have the most colourful, stunning candles for sale and they aren’t too expensive either! Love coming here.
