Popple Creek Candle Company is a welcome addition to our Northern Lights location in downtown Phillips, WI. The small kiosk-like area in the Northern Lights building displays our candle products and much more.
All of the candles that we have for sale are made by us.
We offer two sizes of jar candles, smaller container candles, votives, tealights, and pixies (wax melts). We use only a top-quality palm-oil/paraffin blend wax* and ALL of our products are double-scented for an exceptional fragrance experience.
We have over 1000 candle products on display at any given time so be sure to stop and browse. The jar candles are pint and half-pint containers, our specialty container candles are quarter pint, the votives are premium sized and you can buy one or a mix of different scents.
The large tealights are sold by the dozen and come either as unscented (for warmers) or scented. We also have a two dozen size bag of mini-tealights (unscented) used for shorter burns. Our pixies (wax melts) are sold in bags of a dozen and like our votives and tealights are available in every fragrance we offer.
In addtion to our line of candles we also stock a wide assortment of candle accessories which includes but is not limited to votive holders, tealight holders, tealight warmers, wick dippers and trimmers. We also have a fun assortment of "northwoods type" signs for your home or cabin.
Most importantly - our first goal was and continues to be - to produce a quality candle and secondly to then keep all of our products affordable.

*Fun Facts: Soy vs. Paraffin
Popple Creek Candles are made with only 100% pure food-grade paraffin. We made soy candles - we switched.
Paraffin wax is refined from naturally-occurring crude oil, the product of animal and vegetable matter that has been locked inside the Earth for thousands of years and refined into more useable products including fabrics, plastics, etc. Virtually all of Popple Creek’s paraffin is domestically-produced.
Soy wax is vegetable matter made from the oil of soybeans. A hydrogenation process converts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to a saturated form. This chemically alters the melting point of the oil, making it a solid at room temperature. Most soy wax that is used for candles is not made in the United States; it is imported.
The National Candle Association has thoroughly researched the soy vs. paraffin topic and provides the following statements:
“All waxes are primarily hydrocarbons, whether of animal, vegetable, or petroleum origin. The chemical composition of all waxes is similar, and all candle waxes burn in the same manner.
No specific type of wax or wax blend is considered “best” for candle making. All waxes - when provided in high-quality format - have been shown to burn cleanly, safely and in the same manner.
No candle wax has ever been shown to be toxic or harmful to human health.
There is no such thing as a soot-free wax.”
In the end, both paraffin wax and soy wax are both good choices for candle wax. Neither is more “environmentally friendly” than the other, and there has never been any scientific evidence that paraffin wax is harmful to your health in any way at all. It’s a personal choice, and naturally, we hope you’ll choose Popple Creek Candles!
