You don't always have to buy a brand new candle.

Have you ever gotten finished burning down a candle, and wished you could just refill it?

Needfire has you covered! We offer both local candle refill services as well as candle refill kits for non-local customers. We use high quality, unadulterated beeswax from small producers and cotton wicks for the most environmentally and healthy friendly candles.

Why Beeswax? We are of the opinion that beeswax is not only the best option for candles, it is the only option we can confidently support. Many other waxes produce unhealthy and even harmful chemicals. In fact, most non-cotton wicks can contain chemicals you definitely do NOT want to breathe.

Beeswax, on the other hand, have a beneficial impact on the air in a space. Beeswax releases negative ions as it burns. Airborne pollen, dust, and other pollutants carry a positive ionic charge. These are negated by the negative ions released by beeswax and fall to the ground. It's similar to a water filter. 

However, not all beeswax is made the same. Big companies often cut their beeswax, and some even thin it with ingredients like bleach. We use beeswax provided by incredibly ethical vendors such as Waya Wellness. We are committed to supporting small makers who are helping to keep honey bees alive and well.

How does it work?

For Local Customers

If you can easily travel to Portland, ME, the process is simple and easy! All you have to do is book an appointment, and bring with you any metal or stoneware candle jars that you have. If you don't have your own, we're happy to make them for you. (We cannot refill non-tempered wax, for safety reasons.)


When you book, you will be asked to put in a $10 deposit which will be applied to your final order and be charged $3 per 1oz of beeswax. We ask you give us about a week to complete your order and we will contact you when your candles are ready. We provide the cotton wicks!

For Non-Local Customers

Are you one of our out of state customers? No problem. We have created the perfect kit for you! All we ask is that you figure out how many liquid ounces you need. A great way to do this is to simply fill your empty jar with water and take a regular kitchen liquid measuring cup, and pour the water in the measuring cup to check it out!

We will send you exactly the wax you need, as well as a pitcher to pour it. All we ask is that you purchase our kit below. For those who are interested, you can enroll in a monthly wax refill!

We recommend our kits for metal, stoneware, or other heat safe vessel. We do not recommend to use them for glass refills.
