Southern Lights Candle Company

In a shop from the 1700’s in the historic section of St. Augustine, Southern Lights has made and sold candles for over 35 years.

All of our candles are made on premises. Working with soy, beeswax, bayberry, and paraffin, we find the best wax blends for each application.

With over 50 fragrances from essential oils, we have many choices and will gladly custom pour and scent candles to your specifications.


From our retail store, we expanded to this website where we are one of the largest suppliers of real Bayberry candles online.

It is our pleasure to keep the age-old tradition of burning Colonial Bayberry candles alive and well to help ensure health and prosperity to all who burn them.
