All of our candles and melts are 100% soy wax; our colours are synthetic but contain no harmful ingredients or toxins. We also have a range of natural colours; these are natural and plant-based, and are 100% vegan.

Fragrance oils are synthetic but contain no harmful ingredients or toxins 

As for our packaging, it contains next-to-no plastic. The silver labels on candles and melts are made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), so if you’d prefer a paper alternative, please let us know; our badge-stickers are also made from PVC and unfortunately we currently aren’t able to offer a paper-alternative so if you’d like no badge-sticker(s) on your order(s), please let us know. Tealights and melts are packaged in a small bag made from sheer organza; again, please let us know if you'd prefer not to have this. Melts are wrapped in tin foil to help preserve their scent. The shredded black paper used to pad postal orders is recycled.

Our products are gift-wrapped in black tissue paper and our candles all come with a piece of soy-coated cotton wick; this helps to light your candle safely and comes in great when a jar candle’s wick starts to become out-of-reach.

We use only WEDO ECO cotton wick for regularly-wicked candles, recognised for its superiority in absorbing and burning soy wax. For wood-wick, we use olive oil-treated maple. 

Because of the nature of handmade products and the softness of soy wax, please be aware that no candle will be 100% perfect and blemish-free (although please also be aware that we will always strive to get as close to 100% as possible, as well as ensuring the number of blemishes are as minimal as possible).
