Founded in 2017, Urban Wanderlust is a Latin + Woman owned artisan company in Long Island, NY.

Inspired by memorable moments in travel from our Founders life, we hope to invoke your olfactory senses with adventure & wander.

Each candle is lovingly hand-poured and tested in small batches for quality & freshness. We use only the finest natural ingredients to create a clean & non-toxic experience that's safe for you and your household.


Judith Keriopoulos - Founder of Urban Wanderlust Candles

Judith Keriopoulos is the woman behind all things URBAN WANDERLUST.

After recent travels through Thailand & Costa Rica, she returned home with a desire to gift friends and family something more than just souvenirs or photos.

Judith felt inspired to transport everyone to all of the beautiful countries she had visited.

And what better way to capture these memories than in a candle!

She quickly founded URBAN WANDERLUST and within 4 years UW has grown, from making a few candles over the kitchen stove to now having a dedicated candle studio.

All thanks to the love & support of each and every one of you!


We are proud to say our products are 100% cruelty-free and scented with fragrance oils free from all phthalates & parabens.

Our soy candles are hand poured using soy wax, which is biodegradable and manufactured from American-grown soy beans. Our candles use full fragrance, that is non-toxic, containing no phthalates, parabens or dyes.

Our skincare line of perfume oils and lip balms use natural oils such as apricot kernel, grapeseed, sweet almond, jojoba, coconut oil, castor oil and beeswax.

We strive to remain a sustainable brand by reusing biodegradable packaging and eco-cotton wicks. Our glassware is of the utmost quality, chosen for reusability and made in the USA. Our packaging is American made, using recycled materials where-ever possible.
