Why are your candles so cheap?
Whilst most companies sell via shops or online retailers, who typically take up to 50% of the sale price, we only sell our candles directly and so can sell our candles to our customers at the price most retailers would be paying wholesale. We have also minimised manufacturing costs by cutting out unnecessary elements such as packaging and dye (this also makes them greener!)
Are your candles pet safe?
No candle should be burned around children and pets due to the fire hazard, so when burning our candles please ensure they are out of reach of children and pets.
All scented candles contain various oils, some of which may affect some animals (and some humans too – check for allergies!) We state any ingredients that may trigger a reaction on the base of our candles and the product description on our website. If you have any concerns, please seek advice from a professional regarding any ingredients that may have an impact on your pet. If your pet appears unwell or behaves unusually when the product is in use, please stop using the product around your pet and consult a vet. Some ingredients are known to affect fish. We do not know whether or not burning the candle in the same room as an aquarium will have an impact, but advise against this just in case (especially if the warning label states ‘harmful/toxic to aquatic life’ – however, this warning relates to the mixture coming into contact with aquatic life, not simply being in the same room).
DO NOT BURN AROUND CAGED BIRDS
Are your candles suitable for vegans?
We know that our wax, oils, wicks and tins are all vegan friendly. However, we do not know whether our labels and sticky wick pads are vegan friendly. For this reason we do not advertise our products as vegan. If you choose not to buy from us on these grounds, please ensure that whoever you do buy from has checked their labels and wick adhesive is vegan.
What wax do you use?
We use a premium quality mineral wax blend (yes, that means paraffin) as we do not believe soy is particularly environmentally friendly. For more information please read Our Commitment to the Environment
