Reusable Ceramic Scented Handmade Luxury Candles

Lorna worked closely with a sustainable and eco-friendly candle brand in the UK to decide on the scents for her candles. The hand poured vegan eco-friendly plant wax is made from a mixture of non GM soya, rapeseed and coconut oil to create a clean burn using high quality fragrance oils. The process involves using high quality fragrance oils specifically created for safe candle use. There is no palm oil used in the manufacturing of these candles.  All of the candles are paraben free and phthalate free.

Plastic Free Gifting

Sustainability is also very important to Lorna. All candles are sent out in a plastic free kraft cardboard box. Each candle comes wrapped in Lorna’s Ferns wrapping paper as standard so is a ready made, plastic free Mother’s Day gift. This makes buying and wrapping a gift a little bit easier for you this Mother’s Day. Add a card at check out and we can hand write a message and send this direct, saving you time and postage if you’re not lucky enough to see your mum over the weekend.

Once you have given your luxury scented candle to its intended recipient, be sure to let them know these important points but each candle purchase comes with an info card so to pass on the info.

To ensure an efficient burn, when you initially light your candle let it burn for at least one hour so you can see a full melt pool on the top of the candle before you blow it out. 

This helps maintain a consistent burn, and reduces tunneling. You should get approximately 60 hours of burn time from each candle.

British Hedgerow Ceramic Scented Candle

Lorna paired a floral British Hedgerow scent to match with the bee, floral and forget me not design on her ceramic vessel. This design is a reminder of Spring with yellow flowers and bees combined with ferns and foliage. 

The British Hedgerow scent is a subtle mix of floral notes, giving a gentle scent once lit. It is reminiscent of spring evenings and country walks. The top notes are apple, raspberry, gooseberry and pear. Heart notes are jasmine with base notes of brandy. An uplifting fragrance for those that love spring. 

Spiced English Pear Ceramic Scented Candle

Lorna paired the English Pear and Spice scent with her blue and yellow ceramic vessel. This design is more autumnal and features beautiful blue and yellow butterflies. 

The Spiced English Pear is a strong scented and delicious mix of pear, apple, cinnamon and vanilla. This luxurious powerful scent is our strongest of the three candles and is perfect for cosy autumn and winter evenings. It is great for those who like bold fragrances.
