Who We Are

Leeda is not just another candle brand. It is a studio that specializes in shaped candles. Launched in 2020, our sophisticated, elegant, and most importantly, Instagram-worthy shapes are the perfect statement piece for your home and gift for any occasion.

Leeda was founded with sustainability in mind. Each candle is made from organic soy wax with a small addition of beeswax. We do not use any paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum. Our packaging is eco-friendly and we continue to work with our suppliers to ensure all of our waxes, wicks, and fragrances are ethically sourced.

Ladies Behind Leeda

Hello! We are Liza and Saida – the duo behind Leeda. We originally met in 2016 and lived together throughout our university years. Now, we are best friends who, among other things, are bonded by our love for home décor. 

While travelling together in Europe, we discovered shaped candles. We were fascinated by the idea of such a multifunctional object – one that can function as a decorative piece, as well as serve as a candle in the traditional sense. Upon our return to Canada, we realized that these types of candles are not available anywhere in North America. That is why we decided to make them ourselves. 

We invite you to join us on our journey of transforming the candle scene one shaped candle at a time!
