A candle sits on a table next to a window.

So this is how it went, we were standing over the still last week and chatting about how we could do a better job with sustainability. Yes, you are right you will hear most businesses talking about this at the moment and it is fair to say that last year we put a range of measures in place to ensure we were doing all the right things. Then we got onto to talking about our bottles and recycling and we were puzzling around what we could do to give something back to you – the people that support us…

So here goes, have you got a bottle that you are about to finish? When you do – fill in the form below, send us your finished bottle and buy another 50cl bottle. We will make you one of our candles and send it back with your new bottle ready to burn and drink!

You might know that we use Soy Wax in our candles and there are a number of reasons why but here are the top six reasons as to why our candles are good for the world:

Longer Burning – Soy wax has a lower melting point which means it burns up to 50% longer than paraffin wax candles.

Non-Toxic – As soy wax is made from vegetable oil it is clean burning and releases no known carcinogens when it is burnt.

Better Fragrance – Due to the lower melting temperature of the wax, a healthier ‘wax pool’ around the wick is created. This ‘wax pool’ allows the fragrance oils to more easily vaporise, and thus releasing more fragrance into the home.

Renewable Resource – Soybeans are an environmentally friendly, sustainable and a renewable resource.

Easier to clean – Spills of soy wax is much easier to get out of fabrics or table cloths as it is biodegradable, with a simple wipe and its gone. Soy wax can also be used on the skin (but always to a patch test before hand) – this leaves your skin feeling rejuvenated and smelling amazing

Clean burning – Soy burns clean which means minimal soot is released.
