I am because you are

Rooted. Balanced. Sustained

The Ubuntu Flames candle experience is not just sensory modality, it is a unique channel for a person on a self development and personal evolution journey. We see ourselves in a partnership with you because we see ourselves in you. Whether it is after a long day's work with your glass of wine or after putting the kids down at night or as you soak up in your tub to recoup from life's everyday's challenges or during your grounding intentional meditation, Ubuntu Flames is your partner to remind you that you are enough and that you are worthy of pouring back into. We carry our own signature scents but because we understand the uniqueness of your circumstances so we offer custom made scents too. Our promise to you is that we will continue to create a product that will hold space for you as you continue to disinter all the different parts of you and come to a better knowledge of yourself


The Story of Ubuntu Flames Handcrafted Candles

Ubuntu Flames Handcrafted Candles is a Chicago based handcrafted candle company inspired by the African philosophy, spirituality and ethic of African traditional living 

The principle of Ubuntu is defined as the capacity in African culture to express compassion, reciprocity, dignity, harmony and humanity in the interest of building and maintaining community with justice and mutual caring.

Our candles will take you through a journey to the motherland, all within your home, with the look and scent of the lidded glass jar crackling wooden wick candle. Listen to the soft crackle wooden wick while a warm scent of luscious Afro-inspired natural notes of African cocoa butter, Rooibos, South African Jasmine, African Lily, Basil, Marula , Sandalwood and more fill your room. With up to 36 hours of burn time, this wooden wick candle will give you stress relief and rejuvenation day after day. Coming in a glass jar, it brings an elegant practicality to your space no matter where you use it

While our candles are hand-poured in the USA , they come packaged with a laminated African proverb keepsake, to let you share in on some indigenous African wisdom
