We combine traditional expertise and knowledge with state-of-the-art technology at our factory in Glasgow. We dip, mould, press, roll, and fill the highest-quality wax around pure-cotton wicks to make a huge variety of candles of different shapes, sizes, colours and fragrances.
All of our scented candles are made with the purest of scents and the variety of original fragrances and scent combinations we offer is unrivalled. To browse through our range of scented candles is to take an olfactory trip around the world and through the seasons with Frankincense & Myrrh evoking the Far East, Persian Lime and Grapefruit ushering in the Spring season, and Vanilla & Coconut conjuring up the gentle swish of a warm sea on a tropical beach.

Shearer Candles was founded in 1897 and supplied votive candles to churches from the day the company opened for business. We have preserved this knowledge and expertise down through the generations and traditional votive candles remain an important part of our business. Our votive candles are timeless and long-burning and are available as classic taper candles and pillar candles that can burn for up to 90 hours.
Extrusion is the very latest technology in candle making. Crushed wax is forced, using intense pressure, through a heated die to produce a continuous length of candle. It is then cut into pre designated sizes. This process produces high volumes of candles with exceptional quality and long burn times. These candles burn with no wastage leaving a wax biscuit when consumed. Church candles have always been at the heart of what we do at Shearer Candles. Classic, ivory and unscented, our range of extruded church candles come individually wrapped and can burn for up to 170 hours.
