Lots of people have candles in their homes, I know we do! We have all different sizes, colours and smells. Now that summer is behind us and as we head into Autumn, the nights are starting to get darker quicker and colder, so candles will be a popular choice for a lot of people for luxury bath times, watching a movie, romantic dinners and Halloween. Yes, Halloween.
Halloween, the spooky time of year when candles just seem to be an excellent fit. What is better than dressing up, dimming or turning off the lights and having flickering candles create an eerie effect? And we have just received the perfect spookiest candle that is just perfect for Halloween Trick or Treaters coming to the door, Halloween parties or even just sitting down with your loved one or friends to watch your favourite scary movie. Vegan Bunny, an eco and vegan-friendly family run small business, have just sent us their handcrafted Trick or Treat candle, and it certainly is a treat.
Vegan Bunny are a family-owned small business that make their own handcrafted candles using Vegan, cruelty free and eco-friendly supplies that are safe for you and the planet from their own garden studio and send them out from their small office in the centre town. All the products they produce are handcrafted with love using high quality ingredients. All of their items are approved vegan and cruelty free by PETA. For every candle they sell, they make a donation to charity and plant a tree. You can read more about their sustainable initiatives here.
So, what’s so special about a Halloween candle? There are probably loads on the market to choose from. Well, if you are thinking that a Halloween candle is going to be a dark colour, ghoulish or even scary looking, the Vegan Bunny Trick or Treat candle is cute. I have to say cute because it does look cute, and I really do like the look of it. First impressions are everything and this candle certainly leaves a very good visually pleasing first impression. It is a white candle in a glass jar (with a screw top lid) that is cutely topped with Halloween-themed sprinkles (it looks good enough to eat), it really does stand out from other candles. So, it looks good, but it also has a very special surprise that I will come to later.
Here are the candles eco-friendly, vegan and sustainable credentials:
- Vegan & Cruelty-free
- 100% natural ingredients
- Reduced Product Packaging
- Sustainably sourced materials

- Handcrafted using Green & Vegan energy

- Measures 45 (D) x 65 (h) mm
The Halloween Trick or Treat candle is a limited-edition candle which will have a limited quality (so don’t wait until the week before Halloween to be ordering yours). It comes supplied in a glass jar and once you light it, it will be the spookiest candle that you will ever own.
It’s clear to see that I already like the aesthetics of the candle but what does it smell like and what is the special surprise I mentioned earlier?
As it is a Halloween candle it has to be different from other standard candles. Well, I think it looks much better than a normal candle with the sprinkles. But underneath that, it is just a white candle. No, it’s not. The surprise is that when it burns, the wax itself turns from white to black – I bet you don’t own any other candles that do that! The candle has a burn time of 25 hours so will definitely see you through Halloween.
But most candles aren’t purchased for their looks alone, they have to give off a good fragrance too. The Vegan Bunny Trick or Treat candle is blended with bergamot, lime & clove and really does smell good and not too overpowering. It smells like Halloween gummy sweets.
If this isn’t the coolest candle to ever exist, then I think it will be hard to find many that are. At £15 (plus shipping, or there is free shipping on orders over £30) it isn’t too expensive, especially with all the Vegan and eco-friendly credentials (plastic-free packaging, fully recyclable materials, water-based inks for branding, tree planting for each item purchased and made with Green-Vegan energy), and at the moment you can save 10% on all orders, just check out their website for the code.
The Vegan Bunny Trick or Treat candle is perfect for Halloween or to give as a gift. It looks good and is much better for the environment than standard candles. And it will add that special uniqueness to your home on Halloween and beyond!
