Ingredients & Packaging

Here you will find some information about the ingredients we use in our products, along with our packaging choices....

CANDLES:

Soy Based Wax (Pillars) - Recently our long-time supplier of Soy Wax closed it's doors and we were forced to source an alternative. Our new Soy based wax is, unfortunately no longer 100% soy wax, however it is by far the best wax I have ever used in making candles and as a bonus each ingredient is sustainably & ethically sourced. Our new Soy Blend wax is made up primarily of natural soy bean and blended with smaller portions sustainably sourced, certified palm wax, premium grade paraffin wax and a unique plant based additive.

Soy Candles (in Jars) - Our soy jar candles are currently still made with pure soy wax, though we understand that the brand we currently use is being discontinued some time in 2020. 

Palm Wax - We only use sustainable palm wax (including in the above Soy based blend) which is sourced from reputable and ethical suppliers. Our palm wax supplier is a member of the RSPO (Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil) to find out more visit this site - https://www.rspo.org/

Essential Oils - Most of our products are crafted using Essential Oils. As always, we only use the highest quality available. We have several, highly respected suppliers of Essential Oils used by Naturopaths and Aromatherapists World-wide. We do not use, nor recommend Essential oils sold by MLM Companies.

Fragrance Oils - We only use fragrance oils in some of our products, our Sabbat Candles and some of our Scented Botanical Candles (always mentioned in descriptions). Our fragrance oils are predominantly made from natural ingredients, some are also made from completely natural ingredients. Only the highest quality oils are ever used from a reputable Australian Company who we have been sourcing our oils from for just over a decade.

ALL OTHER PRODUCTS:

Essential Oils - Most of our products are crafted using Essential Oils. As always, we only use the highest quality available. We have several, highly respected suppliers of Essential Oils used by Naturopaths and Aromatherapists World-wide. We do not use, nor recommend Essential oils sold by MLM Companies.

Botanicals - All of our Herbs, Resins & Berries are Organic. We have a few wonderful suppliers including farms who provide us with the best quality in herbs and resins. Due to being grown and harvested organicaly with no pesticides - there may be the rare beetle present. If your herbs contain a beetle or two we suggest popping your herbs into a ziplock or freezer bag, freezing the herb overnight and any beetle should be found in the corner to simply toss out. Your herbs will not be harmed by doing this - or from any beetle present ;)

Base Oils - Apricot, Almond, Jojoba, Olive, Coconut oils etc. We only use the highest quality, food grade oils from the best suppliers possible. 

PACKAGING:

Most of our products are packaged in recyclable materials, glass bottles which can be refilled or other reusable materials. We are currently working on sourcing eco-friendly ziplock bags that are the right sizes for our herbs and which can actually be sealed to store freshness and avoid bugs etc. We always suggest reusing these if possible. 

PACKAGING YOUR ORDERS:

When packing your orders we always recycle packaging from our suppliers, use as much eco-friendly packaging materials as possible and use recycled cardboard boxes. We recycle as much as possible and aim to reduce waste further by the end of the year by switching to compostable mailing satchels and bubble wrap as soon as costs permit.
