Swazi Candles, Malkerns

#1 of 8 in Shopping in Eswatini (Swaziland)
Founded in 1982, Swazi Candles produces and sells candles, vegetable glycerin soaps, and body balms, as well as wax-covered LED lights. Interact with artisans at their workshop and learn about "millifiore," the ancient technique in which hard wax is used to create a colorful shell that doesn’t melt with the candle. The onsite restaurant serves tasty milkshakes, while the nearby crafts market offers a wide selection of non-candle souvenirs.

  • Great place to get Swazi souvenirs without any hassle, you can watch live how the candles are made or explore the other shops with some nice quality products like bamboo fabrics or even local rum...  more »
  • A lovely collection of Swazi souvenir shops. Swazi Candles are crafted with such skill and variety of colours, and their custom made natural soaps are wonderful. The restaurant & bar has a decent selection and its such a relaxing experience being there
  • We love going to Swazi Candles whenever we are in the Kingdom of eSwatini. The vendors are proud of their authentic Swazi products and sell quality curios and much more. There is a great restaurant to grab a bite to eat after walking through all the fantastic shops. Do not run through this great tourist attraction. Give yourself at least an hour to appreciate the friendliness of the Swazi people and the creative environment the vendors manage to create.
