"There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."

- Edith Warton- 

Desire and Mischief the crow perched on her shoulder

Witch & Crow Candle Co. was born from a creative spirit, a flickering passion for craftsmanship, and the desire to add a touch of magic to everyday life. Founded by the Tipsy Gypsy, Des, who is a true artisan at heart, her journey began as a creative escape during load shedding. In the heart of South Africa, where power cuts are a common occurrence, Des found solace in the flicker of candle flames and the art of candle making.  Living in the countryside with her son, 2 rescue crows, Mischief & Jack, 2 Dogs, a cat and 2 bunnies, she is a passionate animal lover, and the name Witch & Crow honours her connection with these amazing birds.

What started as a hobby to keep busy has blossomed into a small, homegrown business that we proudly call Witch & Crow Candle Co. Every candle that leaves our workshop is a labor of love, meticulously handmade to illuminate your world with warmth and enchantment.

We believe that there's something inherently magical in the dance of light and fragrance, and our commitment to this belief is evident in every candle we create. Our small-batch, handcrafted approach ensures that each candle is unique, just like the flames that have inspired us.

As a customer-centric company, we aim to bring a touch of whimsy, a hint of mystery, and a lot of joy into your life. We're not just makers of candles; we're creators of moments, storytellers through scent, and artisans of ambiance.

Join us in this journey of craftsmanship and creativity, and let the light of Witch & Crow Candle Co. infuse your life with the enchantment it deserves.
