WICKS

 

We use a mixure of wicks depending on the fragrance blend. There are six in total and are generally cotton cored. Every now and then we use paper cores for those trickier fragrances.

WAX

 

We use a soy wax blend, with the primary wax coming from a sustainable, renewable source. The overall blend has been crafted for an exceptional olfactory experience and consistent, clean burn.

PREPARING

 

All our candles are made by hand. Each wick is carefully centered and the glass warmed to 150°F. We pour one scent at a time, in small batches to ensure a quality end product.

MELTING

 

We use a blend of three waxes,carefully heated to 185°F in double boilers at our workshop in rural Derbyshire. We then mix the highest concentration of fragrance oils into the blend before working through our finishing steps.

POURING

 

Once the fragrance oils have binded to our molten wax blend, we pour each candle by hand and center the wick. Some candles require a single pour, others a double. It takes longer but it pays to do the right thing.

FINISHING TOUCHES

 

Before we pack each candle it is inspected by one of the team and finishing touches applied. We surface each candle, trim the wick to an optimum height and apply the relevant label. The batch number is also noted and included on each box for future reference.
