These Soy candles are vegan and smell amazing. All candles are handmade by us here and we use a wood wick to give greater burring around the candle and a lovely crackly sound whilst lit. The candles burn for over 10 hours! We have used recycled glass pudding jars to make them even more eco friendly. If you are able to return the jars to us we will give you money off your next candle and a little crystal to say thank you.
