Vegan Handmade Scented Ceramic Candles in Designer Pots

Why did we use vegan plant based wax? The vegan wax we use is made from a combination of Soya, Rapeseed and Coconut. They give a clean burn which is soot-free.

Unlike paraffin or mineral waxes which are complex hydrocarbon, the vegan wax we use has a simple fat molecule, similar to our bodies making it kinder on us. Soya is sourced from non-GMO sources, the candles are free from palm oil as well as other nasties such as parabens and phthalates.

The aroma breakdowns for our candles are in three parts, so each of the Spiced English Pear, British Hedgerow and Wild Fig scents have been carefully tested by a perfumer – who is a complete expert on creating delightful perfume compositions. These skilled individuals can be affectionately referred to as a ‘nose’ (French: nez) due to their superior and refined sense of smell, plus natural artistry in producing olfactory compositions.

Sometimes depending on the fragrance oils used in the candle, the candle can take a while to warm up and be enjoyed to it’s full potential.

The most subtle scent I have is the British hedgerow candle, this is a gentle smell of outdoors and floral warm breezes. This is great for a smaller room and people that don’t want to have a constant scent. The Wild Fig candle is a great everyday scent, it’s strong on both cold and warm scent throws and gives a fresh scent. The English Pear and Spice candle is our strongest scent, both cold and warm, it fills a large space quickly and gives a warm cosy feeling.

Luxury Designer Ceramic Scented Candles – Small Batch UK Handmade Gifts

Why we made small batches in the UK – Hand poured and small batch because that way you get the best, and biggest fragrance distribution.  That means your candles will give off fragrance right until the bottom of the jar.

The concept for ceramics was born when I was considering my brand and printing my designs on to the candle vessel. The issue I needed to solve was that the vessels are tapered, so branded stickers would not be the first choice. I wanted to offer a luxury, high end feel to my exclusive candles, they are not stocked anywhere else so currently you are only able to buy online via my website.

Reusable Ceramic Candle Pots – Recyclable Forever

We wanted to provide to customers a gift that will last several lifetimes with a variety of uses, especially for interior designers who wish to create a flow throughout a home and living spaces.

Buy Ceramic Handmade Scented Candles in reuseable pots

Our SEO Lady immediately came up with a new office pen pot, currently an old mug with the handle missing. We thought that make up brushes would be tidy in the bedroom, for bathrooms it’s a prefectly pretty plant pot, bamboo paper cotton buds in the cabinet, or as designer toothbrush storage. In your kitchen there’s so many uses as environmentally friendly people store dried seeds, grow herbs on the kitchen windowsill or use for spices and rubs.

Fragrance Oil Handmade Candles – How to get the most from your candle

Handmade Candle Facts: Burn for 1 Hour At First

To ensure an efficient burn, when you initially light your candle let it burn for at least 1 hour so you can see a full melt pool on the top of the candle before you blow it out. For our 7.5cm wide candles the perfect time for the first burn is around 3 hours. This helps maintain a consistent burn, and reduces tunnelling. We recommend aiming for a pool of wax to be around 1cm deep at the edges before putting out.

It is worth repeating this burn technique every now and again throughout the life of the candle to ensure an even burn for the life of the candle.

How do I fix if my candle has started tunneling?

Tunnelling is when your candle burns down in the centre leaving hard wax around the outside, it’s ugly and frustrating and stops you enjoying your candle properly. We have worked alongside our candle makers to make sure that our candles have the correct sized wick for the size of the candle. This ensures no tunnelling on the candles. This is why the first burn is so important so that the wax has a memory of creating a full edge to edge pool of wax. Wax memory is important, when you relight a wax, the previously melted area will melt first and much quicker than the rest of the wax. If you candle starts to tunnel it’s best to act fast, the longer you wait the longer it is to fix.

If you candle is showing minimal signs of tunnelling we recommend burning for 3-4 hours at least twice to create large enough wax memory pools, if this does not work try below

Place some tin foil around the top of the candle where the tunnelling is happening and create a dome with a hole at the top. Burn the candle for a couple of hours. The theory with this technique is by increasing the heat where the tunnelling happens you can melt this stubborn wax. You may need to repeat this a coupe of times. Alternatively you could use a heat gun on this top wax to melt it down.

Candle Safety and Essential Oils

The difference between essential oils and fragrance oils

The age old debate of what’s better, essential oils or fragrance oils, and when I was creating this candle range it really opened by eyes! My assumption was that essential oils would have a better scent and be better for me as well as cheaper, but turns out this is not the case. In the end I chose to use high quality fragrance oils, specifically made for use in candles. These are the best on the market, they are complex and have been intensively checked and tested so they are safe to use.

Scent throw – One of the reasons why I chose to use the fragrance oil is to be able to control the scent throw for our candles. Different scents are volatile at different temperatures so that as the candle burns and the wax warms up they create the complex scent. There needs to be good cold scent throw, the smell you have before it’s lit as well as warm scent throw from the warm wax.

Essential oils and fragrance oils can both be toxic in their own way. For example essential oils can affect pregnant women, dogs and small children where as fragrance oils can give people headaches, but not everyone will experience headaches and not all children will be affected by essential oils.

How to reuse your ceramic Candle

When I designed these candles I had re-use in mind, I already reuse all my candle amber jars as plant pots for my indoor plants but I wanted to create something more beautiful. These pots are the perfect size to use as a pen pot on your desk or in the bathroom as a toothbrush holder. I’ve currently got one of these pots holding my make up brushes on my dressing table but my main idea came from the plant pots. They are great indoor containers and look so beautiful among an indoor plant collection.
