About The Happy Candle

Our Philosophy – We Believe Everyone Deserves Happiness!

The Happy Candle is a family run business. We make Irish scented candles designed to encourage happiness in our everyday lives. We also share inspirational quotes, mindfulness, little meditations and ideas for making your life happier, better and more meaningful.

Our philosophy is simple: Live the best life you can!

We know that life can be tough at times. There are pressures and stressful times and terrible things happen. That’s why it’s even more important to really take the time to celebrate even the smallest of moments — because there are so many amazing and wonderful things to be thankful for.

Your life is a gift and your life journey is yours alone. To us, our candles are a reminder of just how unique and amazing you are, and an inspiration to live the best life you can.

We believe that Mindfulness is a key element in happiness. Mindfulness improves both mental and physical health and social relationships. It reduces stress, depression, and anxiety and increases well being and happiness.

What you need to make a happy life is all within yourself, in your way of thinking. We want to spread this message in the world, literally one Happy Candle at a time.


Mary Ryan EnrightBusiness Founder – Dreamer, Reader, Candle Lover, Expert Fragrance Tester

Hi! My name is Mary and I am the dreamer who founded The Happy Candle. It is my mission in life to spread happiness around. I LOVE candles and I thought “Let’s mix some happiness into a candle!” and The Happy Candle was born. I also love Mindfulness. It has taught me to see life differently and to find happiness in the little moments that make up a life.

My favourite part of the candle making process is the pouring. I love pouring the beautiful golden liquid wax into the containers. To relax, I love watching a good movie, being with my husband, children and friends, listening to music, holidays and smiles.

I think smiling at everyone you meet in your day, beats an apple a day hands down!

What Makes Our Candles Extra Special?

Our candles are hand made. All of our candles and wax melts are made in our studio in Grange Lower, Newcastle West, Co. Limerick.

Wax and fragrances are hand selected for each mix before being blended together in our wax melter. Each candle is hand poured. We aim to make our candles as natural as possible.

We use the finest waxes in our blend – mainly Eco soy wax with some rapeseed wax depending on the needs of the fragrance.

We love using essential oils on their own or mixed with the highest quality candle fragrance oils. The wicks we use are pure cotton and lead free.

We are constantly innovating, bringing more happiness, thoughtful words, and little meditations along with amazing fragrances into your life. Because life never stops changing

We hope you feel inspired to celebrate every time you purchase a beautiful Happy Candle.
