Every ingredient in our candles has been sustainably sourced to ensure we can provide vegan and cruelty free artisan candles of the highest quality.
All of our candles are hand-poured in North Yorkshire using natural soy wax.
Our items are hand crafted using an Artisan candle-making process. This ensures the hot and cold scent throws are beautiful without being overpowering.
Once the soy wax has melted and reached the perfect temperature, we add our oils and delicately blend them together creating scents that fill our workspace!
The wax is then poured into our cotton wicked recyclable tins ready for hand decorating. This gives each candle an individual look so please remember your candle decoration may differ from the image displayed.
Finally, our unique candles are left to cure until they are sold.
With burn times of approximately 20 or 45 hours to choose from, a melt pool thats even from top to bottom and recyclable packaging, our candles provide a high quality, eco friendly alternative to traditional chemical based Paraffin wax.

Soy vs Paraffin - Whats the difference?
Soy wax is a vegetable wax derived from soybeans through a process called hydrogenating. This is where the soybeans are harvested, cleaned, cracked, de-hulled and rolled into flakes in order to extract the oils. Any leftover flakes from the soybeans are used for animal feed - zero waste! Soy wax burns slower than paraffin as it has a lower melting point and due to its completely natural origin, it is thought to burn cleaner than paraffin. This means a soy wax candle on average burns for 30 - 50 percent longer than the paraffin alternative.
Paraffin wax is derived from petroleum, coal or oil shale. Meaning paraffin wax is a by-product of petroleum and therefore is non-renewable. Although paraffin wax contains hydrocarbons as a result of its origin, it is still widely used throughout the candle community as it is cheaper and more accessible than soy wax. Many people report that they suffer headaches and/or respiratory issues when burning paraffin and this is thought to be due to the chemicals it releases into the air.
Both types of wax produce beautiful looking candles and the possibilities of scents and decorations are endless, the candle you choose is purely down to personal preference!
