A note on our candles:
Beeswax is obviously not vegan, which unfortunately means our candles won’t be for everyone. We have decided to move away from plant- based soy wax as our supplier packed in and we have been unable to source a sustainable supply. There are many concerns regarding the massive soybean industry, like deforestation and the use of pesticides and fertilizers and the use of GMO’s.
Beeswax is 100% natural and the least processed of all the waxes. It’s sustainable and biodegradable and it burns slowly. It naturally cleans the air by neutralizing toxins. It’s smokeless and sootless, and works really well with our sustainable wooden wicks
The beeswax we use is a by-product of honey production from our local beekeeper, whom we know. We feel that supporting ethical bee keeping is beneficial to our countryside as a whole helping to build colonies of bees that are healthier and better equipped to battle against neonicotinoids, a type of insecticides used in crop farming.
