    What are Eco-Friendly Candles?

    Eco-Friendly Candles

    Eco-friendly candles are candles that are made from sustainable, natural, and non-toxic materials. They are designed to minimise the negative impact on the environment, as traditional candles made from paraffin wax can release harmful chemicals into the air when burned. Eco-friendly candles are typically made from natural plant-based waxes and lead-free wicks and natural fragrances.

    • Eco-friendly¬†Candle Waxes,¬†such as soy wax, rapeseed wax or coconut wax. Another natural sustainable wax is beeswax.
    • Eco-friendly Candle Wicks,¬†lead-free cotton wicks or wood wicks.
    • Eco-friendly Candle Packaging, recyclable¬†or compostable plastic free materials.

      Our Eco-friendly Candles

      Without exception, all our eco-friendly candles are made from sustainable and renewable plant-based candle waxes. Our candles have no added colourants, dyes or other additives and are either white or cream in colour, the natural colour of the wax. We do not use paraffin wax. We use eco-friendly lead-free cotton or wood wicks from sustainable sources and all our packaging is plastic free, recyclable and compostable. Our shipping and delivery is Carbon Neutral.

      Benefits of Eco-Friendly Candles

      There are many benefits to using eco-friendly candles, including:

      • They are better for the environment. Paraffin wax is a major contributor to air pollution, and eco-friendly candles do not produce these harmful emissions.
      • They are better for your health. Paraffin wax is a known carcinogen, and eco-friendly candles are free of harmful chemicals.
      • They last longer. Eco-friendly candles are made with high-quality materials that burn cleanly and evenly, so they last longer than traditional candles.
      • They smell better. Eco-friendly candles are made with natural fragrances that are more pleasant than the artificial fragrances found in traditional candles.

      Candle Chandler - Eco-friendly Candles and Wax Melts

      Candle Chandler

      A Chandler is "a maker of 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. 

      We are a modern-day eco-friendly candle chandler, making hand poured candles using traditional methods and skills but also other fragrance items such as reed diffusers, tealights and wax melts.
