All of our candles, reed diffusers, oils and wax melts are made by us in small batches to ensure high quality, and consistency, each time.
Our candles are all made with natural wax and infused with high quality fragrance oils, at the optimum temperature, to give the best performance. We thoroughly test every candle to ensure it matches our high standards prior to listing it for sale.
As our candles are made with soy wax, there can be some "blooming" or "frosting" on top of the candle. This is quite normal, is a natural appearance, from a natural wax, and will have no affect on the performance of your candle.
You may also notice some pull-away where the wax has shrunk away from the glass. This is again quite normal in candles and is more likely to be seen when the candle has been in a cold environment. Once the candle has been placed into a warmer place most, if not all, of the pull-away is likely to disappear.
During our extensive testing however, we have found a formula that limits both frosting and pull away to give a wonderfully smooth finish on most of our candles. For some fragrances it has proved more difficult but we continue to perfect those ones too.
See our guide to ensure you get the best performance and fragrance throw from your candles, especially that all important first burn.
Our diffusers are all made with a bio-based solvent from renewable sources. To this we add our high quality fragrance oil balanced to give great fragrance throw throughout the lifetime of the diffuser. We only use fibre reeds as these have better capillary action for our blend than other reeds.
Our reed diffusers last between 10-12 weeks (though often longer), per 100ml, depending on the location it is placed. All of our diffusers are tested to ensure the diffusion rate and scent throw matches our high standards.
See our guide to ensure you get the best longevity and fragrance throw from your reed diffuser.
Our melts are all made with soy wax and use the same high quality fragrances as our candles. They are ok to use with any type of wax burner; whether you prefer a good old fashioned oil burner type with a tealight or an electric one using a light bulb to warm the wax.
Our wax melts last an exceedingly long time and provide great fragrance throw.
If you like to mix up your fragrances each day, then once you have finished with your wax melt simply allow it to cool and pop it out of your burner. Keep it clean and it will remain as good as new the next time you want to use it.
See our guide to ensure you get the best performance from your wax melts, especially making sure you don't overfill your burner.
Our scented oils are blended by us with the same high quality fragrances as our candles. They are ok to use with any type of wax melt or oil burner but we would definitely recommend using a good old fashioned oil burner type with a tealight.
Our scented oils are cruelty free with no animal testing.
Alternatively, added a few drops to the water in our aroma diffusers to fragrance the mist.
