About Us

About Little Creek Candles

I started making candles because I was tired of buying candles that did not burn well or scent right. What I found was that using the high-grade designer type scents and all cotton wicks enabled me to create a superior scented candle without smoke or soot. The following our some frequently asked questions.
About our gel

The base for these candles is Penreco Versagel® gel. This gel is produced from a gelled hydrocarbon base which provides the additional advantage of transparency. I only use this patented gel. Your Little Creek Candles will burn longer than wax and are a beautiful centerpiece in the evening.


The design of your candle may vary from those represented by the pictures on this site due to availability in natural grasses, flowers and potpourri. The designs are protected with our two glass systems which prevent any items on the outer layer from burning. Your design is preserved in the gel. After a refill is inserted your candle will have the same appearance as when you first bought it.


Check our Refills page for full descriptions and examples of our refills. The refills are convenient, easy to use, very lightweight and ship by US Mail. Orders of more than six refills are discounted for shipping.
