Gellite Candles is committed to producing the finest quality gel candles to enliven home decor, add ambiance to parties and fill any space with spectacular scent. We have a complete range of gel candles available with something to complement every color scheme, taste in fragrance or occasion. Whether you're shopping for a gift or for scented candles to burn in your own home, you'll find truly unique designs that are painstakingly handcrafted in our collection. 

Our Story

The story of Gellite Candles starts in 2001 when our founder, Laura Leuty, purchased an expensive gel candle with a seascape design. Although she loved the way it looked, she was disappointed to find that it just didn't burn for very long. When she saw a gel candle kit at a local craft store, she became inspired to try making her own. The first candle that she created with her 5-year-old assistant, daughter Amanda, received rave reviews, inspiring Laura and her husband Jim to create their own gel candles collection.

Suddenly, the Leuty household became a working candle laboratory. Jim and Laura worked together, experimenting with different ways to make a safe, attractive gel candle that would provide long burn times and wonderful fragrances. After hours of work and hundreds of pounds of fragrance oils carefully measured and poured, the Leuty family had perfected the technique.

The first Gellite Candles website was launched, and the original candle collection made its debut. News of our candles quickly spread, and suddenly, our company was hired to produce the entire inventory for a 1,000 square-foot gel candle store. To increase our production capabilities, we moved to a warehouse space and began accepting more and more large orders. Today, we are able to process orders of 1 to 10,000 gel candles with lightning-quick turnaround times, and we offer a greatly expanded collection of candle scents and glass styles.

Why We're Different

At Gellite Candles, we credit our success to the quality of our products, which stand out among all of the other gel candle lines on the market. Our candles have long burn times, and they are fragranced all the way to the bottom, so they smell beautiful hour after hour. We still handcraft every candle in our collection, and we rigorously inspect every one of our scented candles before shipping to ensure that they are in perfect condition. Although we have to invest more time in each candle that we make due to our careful craftsmanship, that extra time spent truly separates our gel candles from all others.

Our Promise to You

When you choose Gellite Candles, you can be certain that you're getting a premium product that will burn evenly and completely when you follow our included burn instructions.
