Candles are a great treat for yourself, to give as gifts, or for holiday decor. Unfortunately, many are made with beeswax or animal fats. Luckily, there are a handful of vegan alternatives utilizing soy wax, carnauba wax, and similar products instead. Here’s our list of vegan-friendly brands.
A line of 100% soy wax candles, Apothenne offers a handful of collections featuring vegan-friendly options. These come in a large variety of scents and simple designs.
Brooklyn Candle is a 100% vegan soy candle line that is also petroleum-free and phthalate-free. Each of their minimalistic candles is made and labeled by hand thanks to their in-house team of artisans.
As an all-vegan and eco-friendly brand of soy candles, The Burlap Bag offers plenty of ways to lighten the mood. With names like Unicorn Puke, Sleepy Squad, and Crazy Cat Lady, it’s the perfect brand for anyone needing a break from the serious.
Homesick is a vegan-friendly line with scents meant for reminiscing. You’ll find Road Trip, Beach Cottage, and Library. Each candle is made from their all-natural soy wax and carefully designed to take you back home—whatever that means for you—every time you light it.
J’Luxe Scents is a non-toxic, vegan brand of 100% soy candles that combines the act of lighting candles with music—each candle comes with a customized playlist. Scents include Girl Boss, Hakuna Matata, BAE, and more and come in 4 oz and 11 oz sizes.

El Pollo Loco’s Chickenless Pollo Taco and Burrito can now be ordered vegan! This popular fast-food chain launched their Chickenless Pollo meat alternative earlier this year. At the time of its launch, the chicken alternative was not completely vegan, as it contained egg. In efforts to diversify their menu with better-for-you options, they’ve reformulated this meat-free item to make it 100% vegan!
