INTRODUCTION

I make scented soy wax candles using essential oils and reclaimed vessels in my studio at home near Bath, England. It has been a hobby for several years and now after massing a large collection I have begun selling to the public as a sole trader from my newly formed Etsy shop.

Despite many other candlemakers my products are different. I endeavour to be creative and unique in my mix of carefully chosen vessels and scent.

I reclaim my antique or vintage vessels from numerous sources including auctions, flea markets, antique and vintage shops, charity shops and online, carefully researching and choosing each one for its age, condition, character, charm and subject.

My candles are lovingly mixed and delicately hand-poured using a mixture of pure natural essential oils and environmentally friendly soy wax producing fragrances inspired by nature; the countryside, cottage gardens and woodland. Unlike cheaper mass-produced candles my appropriately wicked soy wax candles burn cleanly and slowly, optimising the delivery of each fragrance for the greatest experience.

Every item sold has a stated minimum burn-time, in reality lasting so much longer but dependent on care and the environment. Experimenting proves shorter lit times and colder, draft-free rooms prolong life.

My relaxing and therapeutic scented candles are suitable for living, sitting, drawing and dining rooms, as well as bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms and even outside on the patio. They make enjoyable (and occasionally practical) aromatic gifts that are inexpensive but of the highest quality.

After enjoying the candle, the reclaimed antique, vintage or unusual vessel may be cleaned with warm soapy water and treasured or put to a variety of uses.

Each item is shipped with a handwritten label and printed instruction label, and wrapped in tissue paper inside a box which includes suitable protective packaging. Prices range from £6.00 with most between £10.00 and £25.00.

The free Etsy gift message option is available to include in the shipment without any price indicator on the packing slip.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Unlike many of my competitors I use natural NOT fabricated essences. While the latter are cheaper and emit a strong scent at point of sale I find them smokier and their release overpowering. Most importantly I consider fabricated essences to be inadequately tested and regulated therefore dubious and potentially more harmful to oneself and the environment.

CANDLE INSTRUCTIONS

- Place on a flat, firm surface.

- Trim wick to approximately 5mm before burning.

- Burn candle for no more than 4 hours at a time.

- Tunnelling (leaving hard wax around the rim) can usually be minimised by allowing the whole surface to melt prior to extinguishing. This is not always possible due to the shape of the vessel. Great care is taken to ensure my candles are appropriately wicked.

- WARNING HOT - Lit candles, molten wax and their vessels are HOT and can be harmful when touched. Do not attempt to touch or move candle, its wax or its container when lit.

- Cease use when candle wax reaches depth of 5mm.

- When finished remove remaining wax from the vessel and wash with warm soapy water.

- Vessel may be refilled (see CUSTOM ORDERS below) or put to a variety of uses.

WEIGHTS & MEASURES

I provide approximate weights and measures for very Etsy item. These are intended to be helpful and are indicative only. They include all constituent parts of the vessel (lid, saucer, etc.,) as well as the candle unless specified.

SHIPPING

Items are dispatched as soon as possible and within one working day unless notified. I endeavour to post all orders received before 2pm on the same day.

Prices for UK with options, Europe and Rest of World are specified for each item with significantly discounted combined shipping.

Delivery times are as quoted by couriers but are subject to weather, customs, etc., and cannot be guaranteed.

    I have cherished china for as long as I can remember, receiving my first antique china tea set before I could walk, and I have always been mesmerised by the magic of candles. Combining both brings me and, I hope, you even more happiness.
