About Gelmania Candles

Everything you need to know about our Gel-Based Candles.

Our candles have been around for over 15 years. We have just grown it bigger over the last couple of years. We have a variety of fragrances and we also make scentless candles. Anyone allergic to smells can enjoy the warmth without the smell. Our candles are cleaning burning and burn for 40 – 50 hours. After that, our candle turns into a votive holder and you can simply put in a tea-light and enjoy the candle forever.

Our candles are individually hand-made in Canada.

We can customize candles for your special events. Please contact us to make an appointment to discuss your needs.

Our hope is for everyone to enjoy looking and burning the candles as much as we love making them.

Gel wax is made of 95% mineral oil and 5% polymer resin.
We use Calumet/Penreco Gel in all our candles.

We use tested - heatproof glassware for our candles.


When burning for the first time please burn for 2 hours, in order for a pool of gel to form around the wick.

Please do not over-burn your candles until there is no gel left in the jar. Discontinue burning when there is a 1/4 inch of gel left in the votive. Scoop gel when cool, insert tea light & re-use. Order a DIY kit and refill your own candle.

Gel Candles may resemble a beverage or food product. Keep away from children and pets.

CAUTION: Read Carefully all labels on our product - failure to follow instructions could result in a fire, injury or smoke damage. Wick must be kept centred and trimmed 1/8" - 1/4" to prevent smoke and soot build-up.

Burn on stable heat-resistant surface. Do not allow matches or wick trimmings to fall into melt pool. Discontinue use when only 1/4" of gel wax remains in bottom. Never leave burning candles unattended.
