About Us

A Los Angeles musician, turned creator of Wilkin & May has shared his love for style and sustainability into the creation of a luxury candle line called Wilkin & May. 

Wilkin & May handcrafted candles are made from food-grade-certified coconut oil, which is ethically produced from sustainable sources. The final result is a clean burning candle that never collects soot, exudes fragrance, and is truly ecologically responsible. Wilkin & May candles are paraben-free, non-toxic, non-GMO, and never tested on animals.

Wilkin & May’s desire was to create luxury handmade candles free of harmful paraffin wax, which is all too often used by the most coveted luxury brand candles. Paraffin wax creates toxins when burned, collecting in your home. Coconut wax is sustainable, biodegradable, and clean burning. Coconut wax is also biodegradable and water soluble, meaning Wilkin & May’s glass containers are easily washable, making them recyclable or reusable.

Packaging was a collaborative effort between Steven Wilkin and Caroline May. The art work was created by Caroline May.
