Travel Tin - Large


While working in an accounts position doing way too many hours I said to myself “self there has to be more to life than getting up each day and spending over half of your waking hours each week making someone else’s business work.”  From this thought and the enjoyment I get from making “candles and smelly stuff” I took a leap of faith and handed in my notice and Simply Lani was born.


I decided on the name Simply Lani as Lani loosely translates to heavenly in Hawaiian and fitted perfectly with the product that I wanted to create. 

Whilst setting up this website the phrase “Bringing light to the darkness” was suggested and it resonated with me as making candles gave me a creative outlet in the sometimes highly stressful work life that I was living. My wish is that Simply Lani gives you a little of the same as everyone deserves a little bit of heaven every now and then. Whether you are relaxing in the bath or doing the house work you can let your favorite Simply Lani scent carry you away to your happy place.   

You can rest assured that there are no petroleum based products, such as paraffin, used in Simply Lani candles.  All candles in our scented candle range are hand poured using soy wax and lead free wicks.


I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy creating them for you.


Simply Lani aims to minimise our footprint on the planet, while supporting sustainability and Australian businesses. 

The choice to use soy wax was an easy one, aside from the soy wax being non-toxic it is also produced naturally from soybeans and is both renewable and biodegradable. Thus, good for your health as well as the environment. We have some future products in mind that may contain a small amount of palm wax, you can rest assured that if these products are added to our range Simply Lani will only source palm wax from a RSPO certified supplier. If you are concerned with the use of palm products for more information (and peace of mind) on RSPO certification please see

Environmental Footprint

The oils that we use to fragrance our candles and diffusers are sourced from an Australian supplier, which produces the fragrance oils here in Australia. All oils adhere to RIFM and IFRA standards for safety and purity and are not tested on animals.  We also have some essential oil products in the testing stage, the essential oils are also sourced from an Australian supplier.


We made the decision to move away from traditional candle jars, not without challenges with wicking and packaging. As the environment is important to Simply Lani, we conducted rigorous tests to bring you a variety of candles in containers that can be re-purposed in your home.  We have add on options to some of our products, such as gift boxes and lids.  We have done this as we understand that some of you will not want a lid or a gift box and rather than add to landfill we leave it up to you if these items are required or not.
