We are delighted to announce a new product range, handmade candles, hand poured by us in the Felinfach Chandlery Studio in Pembrokeshire, Wales. The products are Plastic Free - the wax, the labels, the packaging and void fill are all recyclable or biodegradable.
..."a chandlery is a handmade maker and seller of tallow, wax candles, and also usually soap". A chandlery was originally the office in a wealthy medieval household responsible for wax, candles and soaps as well as the room in which the candles were kept.
Our handmade candles are made in small batches using the finest quality 100% natural soy wax, infused with a blend of premium high-grade fragrance & essential oil recipes. Fragrance memory is quite a strong and evocative sense and we have named our candles for a feeling or place that we think the fragrance captures.
Our candles are poured in a heavy bottomed straight sided matt Grey or matt White glass container topped with an oak lid that can also be used as a coaster for your candle when burning. We use FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) wood wicks as they are sustainable and have a lovely soft crackling sound when burning. Each candle is packaged in a sturdy gift box that can be reused for bits and bobs or be a ready packaged gift for a friend or loved one!
We do not use dyes, parabens or additives and our products are rated vegan.
Our diffuser base is a premium natural base designed for optimal fragrance throw. We blend this with premium high-grade fragrance or essential oil recipes to create a range of evocative fragrances to suit any mood. The diffuser is available in our matt Grey or matt White glass bottle with an oak cap and tiny oak brand button. An unobtrusive yet contemporary choice that matches our candle range. Our reeds are grey fibre reeds that are custom made for use in reed diffusers and tend to clog less frequently than rattan reeds. We source all our supplies from UK suppliers.
"additional tools, bits and pieces to go with your candles, reed diffusers, wax melts and tealights"
All handmade candle lovers need a selection of accoutrements to enhance the perfect ambience of your home fragrance experience. Candle accessories, like, wax melt burners, wick trimmers and snuffers can be used to make your candles last longer, or burn cleaner, but can also keep their fragrance smelling as good as the first burn.
We also have the beautiful Archivist luxury matches which are the perfect accompaniment to our range of candles, wax melts and tea lights. The Archivist company is renowned for their quality and amazing printing but also for their total commitment to sustainability.
