The story behind us

Get in touch

It all started with one woman’s curiosity and one simple question: How are candles made?

Deborah Andrade embarked on her candle-making journey about 5 years ago, and from the very beginning, it was love at first sight. Since then, she hasn’t looked back.

She hasn’t looked back since.

For this businesswoman, entrepreneur, and wonderful mother of two, the decision to start her own candle-making venture, Wicks & Wishes, in early 2019 was a natural progression.

Debbie’s vision was clear: to create and supply the best, most sustainable, handmade candles in Kenya. Over the past few years, she and her dedicated team have invested time and effort into mastering the art of candle making.

Here at Wicks & Wishes, we take pride in crafting our special blend of wax. It’s not just sustainable; it’s the key to providing the best value in our products. Expect the best overall burn time, fewer deposits, and a final product that is naturally beautiful. Because at Wicks & Wishes, we believe in creating candles that light up not just rooms but hearts too.
