Let me introduce you to our newest candle company at LQ - Northern Flicker Co. Owner/maker, Amber, raises her small young family in Southampton, Ontario, and fuels her handmade business with small town dreams and a love for making people smile. 

In the beginning, making candles helped to pass the time while her toddler slept. Slowly, making candles crept from being a pastime and hobby, to becoming a passion project and profession. 

Amber pours the candles in small batches, lets them cure overnight, and then labels each jar by hand. She ensures her ingredients are good for the body and good for the earth, sourcing her wax exclusively from the United States, and keeping it vegan and GMO-free. Combined with fine fragrance oils and cotton-core wicks, Northern Flicker candles burn clean with little to no smoke or soot.

Although she doesn’t have a formal background in design, she has cited northern design as the inspiration for Northern Flicker Co.’s aesthetic. And the minimalist design is on purpose: to partner with any and every one's home.  

“My candles are as simple as they can get, not only so the wax is as natural as possible, but also so that they blend into everyone's decor scheme.”

We're delighted to welcome Northern Flicker Co. to our family of Canadian and hand made brands. Shop our nine scents online or in-store.
