We know how amazing beeswax is to burn but did you know that the bees need to produce 8 lbs of honey in order to make just 1 lb of beeswax? With the bees ever struggling to survive, somehow, we feel it seems wrong to burn a material that has taken soo long for the bees to make. Particularly where burning beeswax candles is often a short-lived affair. Therefore we have made the bold decision to swap our beeswax candles for a range that are all made using a special vegetable blend from natural plant sources which are both sustainable and renewable. This unique blend of plant wax burns cleanly so no sooting or polluting the atmosphere. They also burn longer too meaning you get enjoyment for many more hours and know at the same time that you are helping the bees.
All our candles are scented using essential oils. None of our candles contain any petroleum based paraffin, animal or beeswax, nor do they contain any petroleum based fragrances. Did you know that the choice of wick also makes a huge difference to how a candle burns? Having the wrong wick and the candle will either burn too quickly or hardly at all, it can also cause sooting and smoking. The wrong sized wick can also cause the candle to tunnel in the middle leaving you with half the wax remaining and no way of using it! All our candles have different wicks to ensure you get the best performance from them. The unique blend of plant waxes also ensure that you get a lovely scent throw from your Winter Perry candle right to the very end.
