Founder’s story

Hello there and firstly thank you for visiting the Flaming Wolf, I’m Shelley, happy-go-lucky, free spirit, equestrian, animal rescuer, mum (to name a few) … turned candle maker.

I’ve been creative for as long as I can remember, however this chapter of my story started back in 2015. After a long and successful career as a hairdresser I just felt uninspired and unfulfilled.

I knew I needed a change, I craved freedom and a desire to design a life I truly loved.

I’d already started making candles as a hobby, sharing them with family and friends, but what was a part time passion is now my full time enterprise.

Why The Flaming Wolf?

The Flaming Wolf was born from my desire to live minimally and sustainably, my passion for animal welfare and my constant companion and muse (Kinson the Alaskan malamute) everything else just seemed to fall into place.

Creativity is at the heart of everything here at The Flaming Wolf, each vegan friendly candle and product created is hand poured by me in small batches. With Kinson and my other rescues as company my creative freedom can flow in the comfort of my garden studio as they relax with not a care in the world!

My aim is to source locally and consciously, from the fragrances I use to the packaging and posting, it’s important for me that we are as green as can be.

Thank you for being part of our journey, I will continue to update you as we co create seasonal ranges, charity partnerships and local pop up shops.

I hope you love the products as much I love making them.

Ta Ta for now
