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.
I'm very proud to plant in Australia for every candle 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.
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 Australia. If you'd like to up the ante, add on an extra tree planting to your purchase.
All candles are entirely vegan. From the wax, to the fragrance, the wicks - all vegan friendly.
I am a proud finalist in the Local Business Awards for 2019 and 2020 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 blog regularly with pieces for candle lovers and lazy people who want to be more eco-friendly and fellow candle makers.
I've spoken on a panel for the Sydney Urbanistas, "Traditional Disruptors: The Butcher, The Baker and the Candlestick Maker".
My candles were featured in Hello May in 2019 and I've worked on custom orders for photographers, interior designers, real estate agents and a local Aussie band!
It's an exciting time for Pretty Frank in 2020.
