About Rustic


Rustic Candles & Giftware was established in February of 2015 and is solely owned and operated by young Canberra mum Amber O’Meley who started what was once a little project while on maternity leave with baby number 1. 

Amber is self taught from day one and after making her first batch of products she couldn’t wait to share her hand made products with family and friends as Birthday and Christmas gifts which followed with further orders and request for more products.

Amber has invested countless hours researching, trialing, refining and developing her products to ensure that they stack up to the best on the market which has been crucial to the delivery of the products produced today which are visually and aromatically amazing.

Rustic Candles & Giftwares soy candles and melts are made using the finest ingredients available within the industry to allow for the delivery of a quality product. Our candles and melts have been highly complimented and seen many referrals from current clients for whom we are forever grateful for!

After realising the opporunities open to the business Amber further expanded the range of products and services to include gift packages, diffusers, wedding florals, wedding packages and wedding styling. 


From 2015 to now Rustic Candles & Giftwares business has grown more than could have ever been imagined which would have been impossible without the support, encouragement and referrals from all of the loyal customers and of course family and friends.

Rustic Candles & Giftware has and operates with a pure passion for creating beauty and the purpose of brightening the lives of its clients and the loved ones of others.

If considering our services for your wedding Rustic Candles & Giftware will take the time to listen to your wants/needs and to work with you to visualise your dream and turn it into a reality for your special day. We also strongly disagree that just because the word “Wedding” is mentioned prices should inflate and assure you that you will not be charged more than Rustic Candles & Giftwares time, flowers and the other items required for your special day.

About Our Candles


Rustic’s Candles are produced with only the best soy wax available to the candelier industry. A high quality global leading wax is essential when it comes to producing a premium soy candle. Our wax choice is free from pesticides and herbicides, they contain no genetically modified material. The wax is manufactured using pure soy beans and contains no petroleum (paraffin waxes). It is Manufactured according to sustainability and renewable resource management.

Unfortunately we can not classify our wax products as organic because of the production process of the wax changing from a liquid to wax state this rules out the classification. However, if you are looking for an eco-friendly wax, then soy candles produced by us is a perfect choice.

About Soy Wax Production


The making of soy wax commences with soybeans from which the oil is separated. This oil is then purified to give pristine soybean oil which then goes through a process called 'hydrogenation', turning it into a solid. Unlike other vegetable or soy waxes on the market, our waxes used are 100% vegetable, guaranteed! There are no beeswax or petroleum products hidden.

Depending on the blend,  a small amount of vegetable botanical oils may be added to give the waxes their unparalleled characteristics and performances. These ingredients are processed under close supervision with careful regard for secrecy.
