about our candles

soy candles | cotton wicks

We take pride in our candles, which are crafted from 100% soy wax without any additives or dyes. We pour them in small batches and use natural cotton wicks, free from lead and zinc—because we believe in keeping it pure and free from any nasties.

To create lingering scents, we blend our soy wax with premium handcrafted fragrance oils, proudly made here in Australia.

Oh, and did we mention? Our products are vegan and cruelty-free, so you can indulge in the comforting glow guilt-free.

Breathe Life into Your Space: Transforming Empty Candle Jars into Stylish Succulent Homes

Ever wondered what to do with those empty candle jars?

Don't toss them—turn them into something fabulous!

Get ready to repurpose, reuse, and relove! From stylish plant pots to charming succulent sanctuaries, join us on a journey to add a touch of green to your space.

Step 1: When to say goodbye

Burn your candle until there is about 1cm of wax left. Safely extinguish and wait for the wax to harden.

Step 2: Removing the wax

Place the candle on a protective surface and pour boiling water into the vessel, leaving an inch of space at the top. The water will melt the candle wax, causing it to float to the surface of the container.

the remaining wax will rise to the top. Wait at least 8 hours for the wax to harden.

Once the wax is set at the top of the jar, pop out the top and disgard. If there's residue, scrape it off with the knife, but be cautious not to damage the jar.

Discard the wick holder at the bottom of the vessel.

Step 3: Scrub-a-dub & Label Removal

Fill the jar with warm, soapy water. After soaking, use a soft brush or sponge to scrub the interior.

Dry it thoroughly with a clean cloth.

Gently peel off the label, and any residue can be wiped away with a bit of lemon or lemongrass essential oil.

Step 4: Repurpose

Fill the jar with a succulent-friendly potting mix, leaving some space at the top for your new green resident.

Gently transfer your succulent into the jar, making sure to cover the roots with soil. Pat down the soil to secure the plant.

Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry between watering. Succulents prefer a drier environment, so don't drown them in water.
