I only sell candles made from plant based waxes. Although that might feel like a logical choice, I want to talk you through how I reached it, and explain why I’m considering alternatives to soy wax. There are a few wax options available to candle makers. Paraffin wax was crossed off the list before the list was even made.
One commitment which I have remained unshakeable on since even before the launch of Ochre & Flax is that all my candles are fragranced solely with 100% pure essential oils. No manmade fragrances, no matter how natural, phthalate free and paraben free, no matter how enticingly cookie dough, fresh linen or peony and rose scented, will be found in my studio or in my candles
