Our large range of soy wax candles are made from high quality ingredients that create a calming ambience 

to enhance your mood.

Our reed diffusers use the same high quality fragrance oils as our other products to allow a more subtle but longer lasting experience.







The Compton Candle Company is based in a village on the outskirts of Sherborne in the beautiful English county of Dorset and was established in 2019. Our aim is to create beautifully handcrafted products using high quality ingredients at affordable everyday prices.

Working from our studio, we hand make our products in small batches with attention to detail and a passion for creating wonderfully scented products.

We pride ourselves on our customer service and building long-term relationships with our customers.



Unlike many of the mass produced popular High Street brands that use paraffin wax, we only use sustainably sourced soy wax in our candles.

Soy wax burns at a lower temperature, produces less soot and releases less particulates into the air.

All of our products are vegan and cruelty free.
