FAQs

What wax do you use in your candles?

All of our candles are made using biodegradable, vegan friendly soy wax, manufactured in the UK from pure soybean oil. Unlike with paraffin wax candles, soy wax candles burn cleanly with no sooting, so our candles won't mark your walls or ceilings.

Learn all about the difference between soy wax and paraffin wax here.

Why do you use wooden wicks?

We use wooden wicks in our candles because they are more sustainable than traditional cotton wicks, and burn with a delightful, subtle crackling sound.

Read more about why we use wooden wicks here.

How do I look after my wooden wick candle?

All of our candles come with candle care information in the box, it's super simple:

1) Light your candle from the base of the wick, closest to the wax

2) Trim your wick to 4mm before each burn (no special tools required, fingertips work perfectly for trimming wooden wicks)

It really is that simple, but if you'd like to read more about how to look after your wooden wick candle you can do so here.
