About our candles:
The candles are hand poured here in Cheshire by our artisan candle maker. The wax is a mixture of soy wax and rapeseed, which gives a slow burn at a lower temperature than the cheaper paraffin wax candles. This means that the fragrances are released slowly and gently, without being overpowering or harsh. The wicks are made of cotton and linen….no nasties in there!
When making candles there are two ways to give them their fragrance. There are fragrance oils and essential oils. Fragrance oils are most commonly used in candle making and essential oil candles are rare to find due to the difficulties and unpredictability that can arise in the manufacturing and the burning. In the production of the candles for The Little Box Of Candles we had to make the decision of which oil to use. We chose to use fragrance oils as they are more stable when they burn and the production of the oils is a lot more tightly regulated, allowing us to be assured in the quality of every individual candle sent out. We also found that fragrance oils provided us with the best smelling candles in testing and gave us a wealth in the choice of fragrance to bring to our customers, providing a new smell each month.
