Professional Candle Maker, Leonie O'Brien from Pretty Frank | Meet the Maker

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

I make soy wax candles and home fragrance that's as green as you can get.

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

I'm very proud to plant a native tree in Australia for every purchase.

Pretty Frank was born in 2016.

It can be so hard to find candles that offer a consistent fragrance throw and this  is one of the reasons I started making candles. To conquer this issue, 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.

Candles cure for at least one week before they get to you for best results. They're ready to burn from the second they arrive on your doorstep.

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. Your delivery is shipped carbon neutral and plastic-free.

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

All candles, room sprays and reed diffusers are entirely vegan. From the wax, to the fragrance, the wicks - all vegan friendly.

I'm regarded as an industry expert, having written for industry heavy-hitters like All Seasons Wax Company, Long Story Short Design and Print, and Auzi Insurance.
