About our Candles...tins

Candles enhance and uplift, delight our senses and enrich our souls.
Our candles are made from 100% sustainable soy wax, with quality wicks ensuring a clean burn. Packaged in attractive tins the lids protect the soy wax when the candle is not in use, and act as a coaster when the candle is burning. With the exception of the cooks candle which utilises the special deodorising properties of essential oils, our candles are scented with quality fragrance oils. The candles come in a range of soft pastel colours. Candles make wonderful gifts, bringing a little luxury and beauty into everyday life.

Burn time for 110gm candle is approximately 23 hours.

Burning tips: To maximise the life of your candle :

  1. Trim the wick to 1/4 inch or .5cm  before you first light it.
  2. Do not extinguish until the wax has melted to the edge of the container. This is especially important for the first burn, and subsequent burns will "remember" the melt path previously followed. We try and always burn our candles this way, every time we light them, i.e. not just the first burn.  There is nothing more disappointing than finding that your candle only wants to follow a burn pattern of melting  a hole down the middle....( most of us can relate to that experience).....so following the "burn till melted to the edge of the container" principle ensures your candle lasts to the very end.

Our wicks burn very cleanly and, once they have been used, a little pinch between the fingers  (before you light it!) will keep the wick trimmed nicely.
