Zen Den Candles

Redefining the Art of Candle Making

Zen Den Candles are created and hand-crafted by Canadian artisan and jewellery designer “Astra” (aka “The Champagne Gypsy”).

Inspired by her artistic passions, Astra has been making jewellery, creating designs and developing new styles and techniques for several years from her Toronto based studio/workshop.

The new Zen Den Candle Collection is her evolutionary expression of the creative possibilities of poured wax.

Zen Den Candles are made with only the finest quality, premium ingredients available – including “food grade” – fully refined paraffin.

We use a special wax formulation that has virtually identical combustion by-products to that of soy and bees wax, far below the most restrictive of any applicable indoor-air standards.

With VOC levels 50% lower than palm wax (and within 0.8% of soy and bees wax) Zen Den Candles provide safe & clean burning beauty for your environment.


Colors (including shimmer finishes) are skin safe, food safe, mordant free pigments. Even the “gold plated” paint is created with a special mix of wax and biodegradable gorgeousness.

Fragrances are Phthalate free. We use only the very best fragrances available in North America. Quality tested and undiluted. Custom manufactured for our suppliers, with many unique fragrances not found anywhere else.

Organic Cotton wicks. All of our wicks are made with this sustainable and clean material. Simply pure.
