Are your candles vegan / eco-friendly?
Yes all our candles are vegan and cruelty free. We use 100% natural soy wax which is a renewable resource. Our wicks are made from cotton and are lead free. Soy wax burns cleaner and longer than paraffin (petroleum based) wax and produces less soot.
We include candle safety instructions on every candle. This is in the form of a label on the base of the candle. For more information, you can find a full list of candle safety recommendations on every product page.
What kind of fragrances do you use?
We use mainly premium fragrance and perfume oils that are specially designed to work with soy wax. Sometimes we also use essential oils. All fragrances are vegan and cruelty-free.
I don't see my favourite candle in the shop, where's it gone?
We make a lot of candles, some are seasonal and limited editions, and we also have our Candle of the Month, so when these candles are not active ie no longer candle of the month, or a different season, we Shelve them. They’re not always gone for good though, sometimes we bring them back and sometimes you can bring them back by requesting them. Please visit the Shelved Scents page to see if your favourite candle is there.
CANDLE LABELLING & PACKAGING (CLP)
What are all these labels on my candle?
There are 2-3 labels on every candle we send out depending on the size. One is obviously the product label with the name etc, the second is the safety label – don’t eat, don’t leave unattended etc – the third is the CLP label which is a requirement for all candle producers in the UK and Europe. Sometimes the safety and CLP labels are combined depending on the size of the product and where we can fit the labels.
What is CLP?
You can read all about CLP here but in a nutshell, CLP applies to any non-cosmetic products containing fragrance, such as perfumes or essential oils, and requires the producer to label their products with the chemical ingredients contained in the fragrance and any associated warnings. This is important information for anyone but particularly those who have allergies or fragrance sensitivities.
What products need a CLP label?
All products manufactured in the UK and Europe containing fragrance must have a label somewhere on the packaging. This applies to products for sale.
Where can I buy your candles?
Here on this website! We also sell on Etsy, and you can also find our candles in some of the Book Delights themed boxes, Ninja Book Books and other small retailers
Can I visit and buy candles in person?
I’m sorry but at the moment, we do not have a bricks and mortar shop so you can only buy our candles online currently
Can I use a coupon code?
Yes you can! We issue various coupon codes throughout the year, for sales, special offers, and through our Reps. Please subscribe to our Newsletter for the latest coupon codes. Only one coupon code can be used per purchase.
Can I cancel my order?
Yes you can cancel your order up until the order has shipped. Once it has been shipped it can no longer be cancelled but you can return it – see returns policy for more details
Current processing time is 1-3 days before your order is ready to be shipped. Shipping options are Second Class and First Class mail and tracked mail. If you select tracked mail, you will receive a tracking number when your order has shipped. We ship all orders by Royal Mail.
All orders are shipped from the UK by airmail or tracked airmail. Depending on your country, this can take from 1-3 weeks (sometimes longer during busy periods). If you have selected a tracked mail option, you will receive a tracking number when your order has shipped. Please note that your order may attract additional charges, customs & import duty or other tariffs associated with importing goods into your country. You, the buyer, are responsible for paying these charges. They are not included in the shipping costs.
Candles are heavy therefore shipping costs can be high. We’re sorry, but there is nothing we can do about that. We offer the best rates that we are able to at the moment and make no money on shipping.
What's your returns policy?
Our policy lasts 14 days. If 14 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund. We do not offer exchanges. For more information about returns, please refer to our Shipping & Returns page.
I've changed my mind / don't like the scent
If you don’t like your candle, and it is still within the 14 day return policy, then you can return any unused, unlit, undamaged candles for refund at your expense. We recommend you use a trackable service, and upon receipt, we will inspect the product, and if it is in pristine, unused condition, issue you a refund for the product only.
My candle is faulty!
Please note that any frosting, cracking or other discolouration is a natural characteristic of soy wax and does not constitute a fault. These characteristics do not affect the burn or the smell of your candle and are not considered to be faults.
