Eco Friendly Candle Making Kits

While candles add warmth and light to every space, making your home feel cosier, they don't last forever and can be a little pricey.

A soy candle can help to set a relaxing mood in any room, whether you’re having company for dinner or enjoying a little me-time in the bubble bath. And there’s no need to worry about the smoke, so long as you’re enjoying soy candles rather than paraffin.

However, you can make eco friendly candles yourself really easily with a few supplies and a little bit of know-how. All you need is a eco candle making kit.

Making your own candles can be as simple or complex as you would like it to be. There are no rules as to what you can and can’t do with homemade candles.

Sure, some of your ideas might not turn out as well as you’d hoped, but it teaches you to learn and improve in your next ones!

What wax should I choose and why?

Soy wax

Soy wax is one of the most ethical choices you can make when searching for high-quality candles and candle-making kits.

Soy wax is derived from a naturally existing vegetable oil (soybeans, obviously) and is entirely renewable, unlike petroleum-based paraffin wax.

Soy wax biodegrades and is a fully renewable resources making our candles the most environmentally friendly option, as well as smelling fantastic.

Each candle offers a surprisingly clean burn with minimal soot and more burn for your buck, as soy melts more slowly and coolly than paraffin alternatives. All our real soy candles are 100% phthalate free too.

So many types of candles use animal products! Beeswax comes from the hives of beeves, tallow comes from the fat of animals, and some wax even comes from whales or dolphins. Soy candles are 100% vegan and do not require any animal products in their production or use.

What type of wick is best?

Wooden Wicks

Our wooden crackle wicks make a delightful cracking sound when they burn. To us it is reminiscent of a mini wood fire, and with the beautiful flicker of the flame, there is nothing more cosy than lighting a wooden wick candle on a dark evening.

People often ask us "are wooden wicks more sustainable than cotton?", and the answer is yes!

It is vital to us that our soy candles are produced with as little impact on the environment as possible. Our wooden wicks are sustainably sourced, FSC approved and offer a more eco-friendly alternative to cotton wicks.

Every time we place an order with our wooden wick supplier they plant a tree, and one tree is enough to produce approximately 750,000 wooden wicks!

Why we love using coconut shells as a container

Coconut candles

Every coconut bowl container is reclaimed from landfill, handmade from real coconut shells and polished with natural coconut oil. We sand down the base to help with stability and hand select each bowl to make sure they are suitable for candle making.

✔️ Polished coconut shell
✔️ Flat base for stability
✔️ Thick and durable edges
✔️ Fire & Heat resistant

Choosing your own fragrance

When it comes to the scent of a candle, no two people will have the exact same tastes. Fragrance intensity is also one of the factors that will cause the biggest differences in opinions for all candle lovers.

Some people love candles that are so strong that they can throw fragrance around an entire room even before they are even lit, while other people prefer when you can just get faint hints of scent here and there.

Natural fragrances are generally made from ingredients harvested from sustainably grown plants. They mainly consist of natural isolates which is a single chemical isolated from a plant that contains a particular smell.

These aromatic raw materials are usually obtained through distillation, expression and extraction much like essential oils.

Natural fragrances are complex compositions of natural aromatic raw materials such as essential oils, isolates, resins, distillates and extracts.
