Made from natural fibres to promote clean and even burning, our wicks leave no chemicals in the air such as lead or other harmful metals.
While many suppliers in the candle industry use paraffin wax, we prefer to use 100% soy wax because it is cleaner, renewable and all natural. This helps us to adhere to our core values by using the highest quality materials to ensure safety and satisfaction with all our products. Our artisan ensures that nothing else is added to the wax other than our signature scent, with no preservatives or chemicals making it a more natural product.
Why paraffin free?
Paraffin wax is derived from petroleum oil, which requires deodorising and bleaching before it can be turned into wax. This in turn releases harmful CO2 and other metals into the environment.
Soy wax, on the other hand, is all natural. Derived from soybean oil, which is a plant-based material, it can be renewed with new growth and is also biodegradable. Soy also burns 50% longer than paraffin, making it more efficient to burn and with a lower melting point it is warm to the touch without being scolding hot.
Please note: Soy wax is designed to expand and contract. All of our candles are hand made and poured, not mass produced. Being hand made means there may be some slight variances between each candle, although every effort is taken for this to be minimal and you may not even notice. Sometimes soy wax can have a frosted look. This is one of the natural characteristics of soy wax. In some cases the wax can come away from the glass jar. This is natural and does not affect the burning of the candle. Every effort is taken to avoid this but sometimes it can appear after time.
