handmade Murano glass
We're Clara and Claudia, the founders of ESPELMA! We're happy you want to know more about our candles! We started this brand because Claudia (who has four kids) stopped burning candles when she became aware of the nasty emissions from paraffin wax. We developed a wax blend that was safer to burn indoors. It was important that our candles be both beautiful and sustainable so we commissioned glass-blowers in Murano to create colorful bowls that could be refilled time and time again with wax. Every customer has a candle that is a unique work of art! Our brand is all about….
Our wax is a healthy blend of beeswax, coconut wax, rapeseed oil and soy wax. No paraffin wax is used in our candles.
Each of our candles are mouth blown in Murano, Italy by skilled artisans who make each piece uniquely by hand.
We believe in reusable luxury: once you burn through your original candle, you can always purchase wax refills to bring new life to your candle.
Our debut fragrances are inspired in our long summers spent at our grandmother's house near Barcelona.
