Leonie O'Brien from Pretty Frank

Hey there! I'm Leonie and I'm the creator of Pretty Frank.

I make soy wax candles that are as green as you can get.

They're made for everyone who enjoys burning candles but cares about their world too


a tree is planted in Tasmania for every one purchased.

Pretty Frank was born in 2016.

One of the reasons I started making candles was to ensure the quality of the candles I burn at home. I developed a simple technique to ensure consistent fragrance from the first to the last burn of your candle.

Pretty Frank candles are made with a single pour of fragrance and soy wax.

This means the wax at the top is exactly the same as the wax at the bottom of the glass, so the fragrance throw will be consistent the whole way through.

Pretty Frank promises quality products and no wishy washy marketing.

I'm committed to operating as green as possible.

Candles are shipped “naked” which means that they'll only come with a box if you request it.

With every candle purchased from Pretty Frank, a native tree is planted in Tasmania. If you'd like to up the ante, add on extra tree planting to your purchase.

All candles are entirely vegan. From the wax, to the fragrance, the wicks, the glue - all vegan friendly.

I was a proud finalist in the Local Business Awards for 2019 for Sole Traders. 

I've written for industry heavy-hitters like All Seasons Wax Company, Long Story Short Design and Print, and Auzi Insurance.

I've spoken on a panel for the Sydney Urbanistas, "Traditional Disruptors: The Butcher, The Baker and the Candlestick Maker".

My candles were also featured in Hello May in 2019.
