Home Fragrance is our passion! But Not just Wax Melts!
We now have a huge range which is ever growing!
We have sourced lots of handmade products from hand carved wooden figures, hand painted canvases, handmade Bird boxes & Wind Chimes. Take a look at our handmade coconut lamps they are one of our favourites!

There are many Candle & Wax Melt makers. We only use Environmentally Friendly, Sustainable and Ethically sourced products. All of our products are cruelty free. We are passionate about gifts and home fragrance, but much more about animals. Most of our products are also Vegan friendly.

 All our packaging for our own brand products are plastic free! Using recycled or recyclable materials, our labels are all made from recycled paper too and even the mail bags are biodegradable/compostable! Where necessary where we need to use bubble wrap or spacers these are green in colour which indicates they are biodegradable.

Many Candles & Wax Melts out there on the market contain glitters & decorations – a lot use Mica. Mica is unethical just google image search “mica mines” you will see why we refuse to use it. We do not use these decorations. There are synthetic versions but these come with possible health risks and/or contain plastics. These decorations may look pretty but they are far from it in reality – harmful, damaging, unethical and well they also tend burn and mark your burners!

Why We Don’t Use Glitter/Mica or any DecorationsMost Wax Melt makers decorate their wax melts with sparkles, glitter, shimmers etc. We do not – We agree they do look beautiful but this goes against our ethos of only using Environmentally Friendly and Ethical products. You can also never be sure they are using plastic free decorations and heating plastic in a bowl of hot wax to us is a big No, there are plastic free versions but these have their own warnings on the suppliers website including “Long Term Repeated use may cause irritation to the respiratory system. Cough. Increased difficulty in breathing” – [Taken from the candle making suppliers data safety sheet for Candle Glitter & Mica powder – Ask for a copy from any reputable business and they will give you the data safety sheets] or see for yourself Check page two of this document.Another product used is Mica Powder – this is a natural substance but for us it has its negatives – The problem isn’t with mica powder itself but with how it’s sourced. Much of the mica powder found comes from two Indian states, Bihar and Jharkhand, they are also rampant with poverty, communities extremely vulnerable to child labour. Not so beautiful any more are they. We refuse to use them to make our products look good to increase our sales. Click this Link to External source We hope you agree!
