Yes. All our candles (click here to go to Chandlery Home Page) are hand poured by us in our FelinFach Chandlery Studio. Our Studio is located in Pembrokeshire, Wales in the UK

The soy wax and the candle fragrance melted and is poured by hand into the candle vessel

All our handmade candles are made from 100% natural, pure Soy Wax (or soy wax and a little coconut oil) – they do not contain any paraffin waxes or any other waxes. Soy wax candles are renewable and eco-friendly products

Soy wax is a natural product that is no-toxic and is not poisonous. Our cnadle wax is made from either 100% soybean oil or a combination of soy and other plant based oils such as coconut oil

Our candles are made from soybeans, a natural plant based wax that is renewable and biodegradeable. Our candles DO NOT contain any petroleum-based paraffin oil

Soy wax candles are derived from the soybean plant and are renewable and also biodegradable

Our candle wicks are made from 100% wood. They are designed to burn slowly and cleanly with plant based soy wax candles

1. Trim the wick. Every time you light it

2. Ensure the wax melts all accross the top of the candle

3. Don't burn your candle for more than four hours

4. Keep your candle away from draughts, open windows etc

5. Don't blow your candle out, use a snuffer. Click here for more...

The top 3 staety tips are,

1. Do not leave burning candles unattended

2. Keep burning candles away from children and pets

3. Do no burn candles near to materials than are inflamable

Soy wax candles produce little to no soot if the wick is burnt correctly. In similar conditions parrafin oil candles on the other hand do produce a sooty flame

All our candles are fully compliant with UK reguations. All our candles have a CLP (Classified, Labelled and Packaged) label which is on the bottom of each candle. Click here for more info

Reed Diffusers

Reed diffusers are a popular way to introduce fragrance into your home without the use of burning flames and candles. Reeds are placed into a glass bottle of eco-friendly fragrance oils. The reeds become naturally infused with the fragrance oils and generate a pleasant aroma in your home

1. Open your glass bottle and place all the reeds into the bottle to absorb the diffuser oil

2. Position your diffuser away from heat and direct sunlight and at 'nose' level! Not on the floor and not on a high shelf

3. Turn your reeds upside down every couple of weeks to help the fragrance to disperse. Wash your hands afterwards

4. Point your reeds in different directions to assist the circulation of the scent.

5. Your diffuser should last last for weeks and and up to say three or four months in ideal circumstances

In ideal condiditons, a 100ml diffuser bottle should last between three and four months. Ideal Conditions? Well, (see other FAQ - How to use a Reed Diffuser) tyr to avoid placing your diffusers next to radiators, direct sunlight and other sources of heat

No they do not. There is no flame and no burning and as a result, no soot!
