About

Good Book Hunting - Bookish Gifts for Bookish People

IN A NUTSHELL
I'm a huge book nerd! I also love candles, so what could be better than combining my love of both and creating book inspired candles! Our candles are all handmade and hand poured in small batches here in Scotland, UK and we only use the best natural soy wax and quality fragrance oils in our products.

THE STORY
The first time I made my own candles was about 15 years ago and just for fun. Now we have a successful candle and gift business. Book inspired candles are not a new idea, there are quite a few out there already, but I could never find a candle that was exactly what I was looking for so the only solution was to make my own and since I was already familiar with candle making I could start the process immediately. We are also CLP compliant with our labelling.

THE INSPIRATION
Good Book Hunting is the name of our online book group which was created in 2005 and we have been reading and discussing books ever since - that's a LOT of books! We are also very different in what we love to read, so we cover a LOT of genres, so when I was deciding what the first candles would be, I went to our book discussions and chose the most popular books chosen by our group.

Because I am also a designer, I wanted to combine other products that I design and make with the candles, so that I could offer a range of different gift ideas and gift boxes so from time to time there will also be other gift items in the shop as our product range develops, that are designed or handmade by me.

We would love to help you with your custom order. Our candles can be hand poured in the colour, scent and size you prefer. Please contact us via Etsy convo to discuss your requirements.

If you would like your order gift wrapped, we can do that for you and ship it direct to the giftee! Just let us know in the Message to Seller box during checkout, to let us know what to write on the tag.

Gift wrapping is available for purchase during checkout.

All our orders are well wrapped and shipped by Royal Mail services to ensure a safe and speedy delivery.

Candle Care & Safety

Always trim the wick before burning - this will help the candle to burn cleanly and for longer, and will keep the flame height down.
Candles should be burned for no more than four hours at a time.
Container candles should never be left to burn until there is no wax left as this can cause the container to get very hot.
Please discontinue use when there is 1cm of wax remaining.
Always place candle on a heat resistance surface, and keep away from draughts, other sources of heat and anything flammable.
Burn the candle out of the reach of children and pets.
Keep burning candles at least 5cm (2 inches) away from each other.
Never leave a burning candle unattended.

Please refer to the candle safety label on the container for more info.

Burn Time & Burning Instructions

BURN TIME:

4oz candle - approx +/-20 hours.
When first burning the candle, please burn long enough for the melt pool to reach the sides of the container to ensure the candle burns evenly and lasts as long as possible.

BURNING INSTRUCTIONS:
Always trim the wick to 1/4 inch each time before lighting the candle and keep the candle free of debris such as wick trimmings or matches. Burn for 3 hours at a time to achieve the best results.
