Hand-Poured in Small Batches
 
All my candles are hand-poured by me on the Isle of Wight They are made from 100% natural soy, have coreless cotton wicks and no added colourants 
Fragrances are sourced from a UK company and added to approximately 8%
The candles are made in lidded recyclable jars or tins
Regular test burns are undertaken to ensure a good "hot throw", a clean burn and that stated burning times are accurate
WHY SOY WAX?

It's good for the environment, being made from a natural, renewable vegetable source

It's good for you and your home; it burns nearly soot-free

It has a low melting point meaning it will burn slower and longer than a paraffin candle

It looks lovely, having a natural creamy texture and giving a translucent glow when burned in a jar

 

 

"You breath what you burn"

GETTING THE MOST FROM YOUR CANDLES

Burn for at least two hours at the first burning. This will allow the "melt pool" to fully develop and the candle will then burn evenly down to the bottom of the jar and avoid "tunnelling".

Trim the wick to approximately 5mm prior to each lighting to prevent the wick from "mushrooming"​

Put the candle out with a snuffer (or simply repace the lid) to avoid wax splatters

Keep out of drafts to enjoy the longest burning time and avoid burning on or near anything that may catch fire

Keep your candle in sight and away from pets and children to be safe

Don't worry if mild "frosting" occurs - this is a natural characteristic of soy wax

"Man loves company, even if it is only that of a small burning candle"
