Our Candles

100% Beeswax.
Not every candle brand will tell you what’s in their candles. Ask and you’ll usually hear ‘natural waxes’, ‘vegetable waxes’ or ‘a blend of natural waxes.’ We’ll tell you exactly what’s in our candles. We use 100% Beeswax – the only wax that doesn’t cost the Earth.

Why beeswax?
We love it because it’s an entirely natural wax made by bees. It’s the only eco-friendly wax there is. No rainforests are cut down, no animal habitats are destroyed, and no chemical processing is involved.
