Our Materials

Soy Wax

We use non-GMO American-grown soy wax.  We use it for it's creamy, beautiful aesthetic.  Soy wax burns for 30% longer than traditionally-used paraffin wax.  Soy wax is naturally-derived and so you will avoid any fumes or soot.


Essential Oils 

We use essential oils in our candles instead of synthetic fragrances often found in most candles.  We blend bespoke essential oils to create a scent that conveys a particular place. 


Amber Glass Jars 

We use apothecary-style amber glass jars, sourced from a long-standing glass company in Bermondsey.  Amber glass jars protect the essential oils from daylight.  They also add a beautiful warm atmospheric glow to any room they are in. Furthermore, they are fantastic for upcycling.  


Cotten/Linen Wicks 

We use organic cotton and linen wicks instead of the traditional paraffin-coated lead wicks.
