Our Candles

All of our luxury scented soy candles are handmade in small batches in North Devon. We use only 100% natural soy wax, natural cotton wicks, and the finest fragrances + essential oils that are all cruelty-free, suitable for vegans and paraben and phthalate-free.

Eco-friendly soy candles provide longer burning times than paraffin wax candles and burn at a cooler temperature than other waxes. It is biodegradable and a renewable resource that doesn’t release toxins when burnt.

All our candles have been fully tested, they're all CLP (Classification, Labelling & Packaging) compliant.

Tell me about the wax you use.

Our wax is developed and manufactured in the UK, it is both biodegradable and vegan friendly. No animal products are used and no animal testing has been carried out in its manufacture. 

What are the benefits of soy wax?

Soy wax has many environmental and health benefits and we love working with it. Here are some of our top reasons for choosing soy wax candles:

Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. 

Soy is a renewable source, unlike paraffin wax which relies on our dwindling supply of crude oil. 

Soy wax is a carbon-neutral product, meaning you can enjoy your candle knowing it hasn't had a negative impact on the environment.

Soy wax burns on average 40-50% slower than paraffin wax, resulting in long-lasting candles and giving you better value for money.

Soy washes away with warm soapy water making it easy to repurpose your vessel once the candle has burned down. No more soaking with boiling water and chipping away at residual wax. 

Soy wax is clean burning and doesn't release toxins, carcinogens, or pollutants which means it's less likely to trigger allergies.

Soy wax won't release petrol-carbon soot like paraffin candles meaning no oily black marks on your walls! Keeping the wick trimmed short will also ensure that the candle doesn't smoke and that it burns efficiently.

What is the difference between fragrance oils and essential oils?

Fragrance Oils are a blend of natural plant-based oil called essentials oils, and synthetic compounds that contain strong aromas.  All the fragrance oils we use are suitable for vegans, they are not tested on animals, and are paraben and mostly phalthate free. 

Essential Oils are highly fragrant oils that are derived naturally from the plant it originates from. The plant is processed through distillation or pressing to yield a small amount of oil-packed full of natural aroma. All the essential oils we use are suitable for vegans, they are not tested on animals, and are paraben-free.
