As a family, we have made candles for friends and loved ones for many years. Our growing awareness of the environmental impact of certain ingredients (pesticide-intensive cotton, GM Soy wax, synthetic fragrances etc) and the toxicity of candles (paraffin / synthetic fragrances) in the home lead us to consider alternatives. Once we found out that there were no certified organic candles from the UK, we wanted to change that.
A candle not only helps create stories, but tells a story. The small wick alone can tell you of catastrophic environmental impacts, through fertilisers & their effects on soil, rivers, wildlife, and humans. Or it can show you something beautiful, of businesses & farmers working against many barriers, but working for & with the planet.
We are committed to:
Protecting workers & the environment – From pesticides & fertilisers, and the harmful effects of Genetically Modified crops.
Protecting the home – from paraffin, synthetic fragrance, bleaching & potentially harmful non-organic ingredients from GM, and fertiliser/pesticide farming sources.
Sustainability – We support only sustainable farming methods and packaging solutions. If it’s not recycled, reusable, recyclable, or compostable, it’s not touching our products.
Transparency – We know clarity is important for people’s trust in organic certification. All our prized ingredients and blends are presented clearly for everyone to see.
Beautifully Simple Aesthetics – The same level of care that we apply to our sourcing of ingredients, we apply to our sourcing of creative.
