Let’s talk all things candles, tealights, melts & home fragrance!

I’m sure we’ve all had, at some point, a candle in our home. But do you know what they’re made from?

Most candles available today, whether it’s a supermarket own brand, a Swedish tealight or THAT famous one with the ladies name, are made from paraffin wax.

Paraffin wax is a soft, colourless solid and a bi-product of the petroleum industry. When it burns it releases highly toxic benzene & toluene - both known carcinogens linked to asthma & lung cancer. Petroleum, from oil, is also highly unsustainable.

I’ll admit I was horrified when I found this out - why would I want to burn that in my home and inhale it? Or have my pets and family breathe it in? But, like most people, I have for quite a few years.

But not anymore, since I discovered Pure Wix.

Their handmade, vegan candles are free from all the nasties I’ve mentioned above and smell amazing!

New Partner!
Pure Wix are a small independent company who are passionate about candles that set the mood.

They hand-make, in small batches, luxuriously scented eco candles, tea lights & melts, all at an affordable price.

Each candle is created using eco soy waxes & natural fragrances (not tested on animals), and all of the ingredients are sustainably sourced. 

In addition, the wicks are made from Maplewood - which at times burn with a delicate crackling, which adds sound to scent. 

None of their products contain paraffin, formaldehyde or heavy metals and the wicks are not dipped in harmful substances, unlike other scented candles on the market. 

Pure Flame for a purer planet.​

The completed products are then packaged in recyclable Kraft boxes.

NB Medium candles burn for a minimum of 30 hours and the large for 40 hours. Plus, because they are soy, they will burn cleanly and evenly with no soot residue or tunnelling.
