We currently accept payments via PayPal, Afterpay and Stripe. When we attend markets we use a Square Reader which accepts all major card types.

Do you use essential oils in your candles?

As wonderful as essential oils can be, they are not suited for burning in candles. This is because of safety reasons, but also because they lose their beneficial properties when burnt by a direct flame. Therefore we do not use essential oils in our candles.

What type of wax do you use?

We use two different types of wax for our candles; beeswax and soy. The beeswax candles are made from 100% pure Australian beeswax and have a distinct yellow colour and a mild natural honey fragrance. Our soy wax is pure soy with no additives or paraffin and we use high quality fragrance oils. Our fragrance oils and soy wax do not contain any animal products so are vegan-friendly.
