Wax Melts with cotton drawstring bag option



Wax Melts are a great alternative to candles and also an economical way to fragrance your home.

Simply place one of our wax melt hearts on a melt warmer with a tea light underneath and enjoy the fragrance throughout your home - and when the fragrance has ended simply let the wax set, scrape into a bin (not down the drain or it will clog) and pop on another!

Being plant based our wax melts are suitable for vegans and come parcelled in a fully labelled recyclable, compostable and biodegradable glassine bag.

Our Wax Melts are presented with scattered dried flora in a glassine labelled bag enclosed in a reusable white cotton pouch with silk drawstring or for a reduced cost, simply in their glassine bags

Due to their varied heat and reduced heating element, wax melts may not perform as well with an electric plug in warmer and are primarily recommended with a melt warmer containing a tealight

Spring/Summer Fragrances

Cotton Flower - light white musk & mimosa, the pure downy blossoms of the cotton flower - a scent of fragrant white linens swaying in a summer breeze

The Hamptons - inspired by a dreamy summer sat on the porch of an opulent coastal retreat on Long Island - the freshness of ocean spray, sun warmed boardwalks & beach herbs create a breezy invigorating blend lifted with fresh Sicilian lemon, bergamot & a lively hit of rosemary and white cedarwood

White Sands - Be transported to far off shores, cobalt blue skies and warm sandy beaches with this stunning blend of exotic coconut, creamy almond and rich amber with a hint of Bergamot & orange zest

Amalfi Coast - The unmistakable aroma of sun warmed lemons trees, coastal dried lemon verbena and a hint of peach flesh on a background of Italian white flowers

Roses - A freshly picked bouquet of vintage roses in full bloom lifted with a hint of geranium, violet and Bergamot - if you remember making perfume with petals in a jam jar as a child, this will bring the memories flooding back

Peonies - The unmistakable heavenly fragrance of blousy pink peonies in full bloom - a truly wonderful and sophisticated delight for the senses

Juniper & White Ginger - an invigorating and refreshing blend of crushed juniper berries, Sicilian lemon and ginger root

Candle Care

1. Never leave a candle unattended.

2. Before lighting the first time, always trim the wick, and then every time before you relight.

3. Allowing the candle to burn for long enough (a good three hours should do it to melt the entire surface of the wax evenly) will help prolong its life - this prevents ‘tunnelling’.

4. Avoid placing the candle in a draught, it will make the wax burn unevenly.

5. Keep your candle out of direct sunlight when not in use.

6. Do not burn for more than four hours, it can start to generate soot and the glass will get very hot.

7. The best way to put out your candle is to dip the wick, use a skewer or something similar and gently dip into the hot wax and then make sure it doesn’t stay stuck in it.

8. Remember to recycle your glass candle once it’s all been used up.

9. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

Soy candles burn cleaner, longer and slower than paraffin wax candles. The most important thing to remember is on the first burn, let the melt pool reach right to the edges of the candle. This could take anything up to 4 hours.

After that, keep your wick trimmed and don't burn for longer than 4 hours at a time. Any residual wax left at the end simply washes away in warm soapy water.

Do not let your candle burn right down to the bottom of the container. Discontinue use when 1/4’’ of wax remains

Soy is a living organism. It continues to expand, contract and change from its current form. It may also look frosted. These ‘flaws’ are normal and it is a clear indication that you have purchased a 100% all natural soy candle.

Custom and personalised orders

Our candles can be personalised. For further details and to discuss requirements and prices, please make contact

Can I get candles and melts in one of last season's fragrances?

We sometimes have our previous season's candles available but they're not shown on the site. Just drop us a line and we can check if we've any in.


Love these, the smell when I opened the box they came in was incredible, smell is very nice and last a long time! Great buy and would recommend to all.

Beautiful bag, makes a lovely gift, then the added bonus is they always smell amazing. Very, very good quality wax melts, in a superb little bag with tag. Gorgeous gifts for those friends that just love to be at home and cosy. Very pleased with all my purchases. Will be back for more again and again. xx
