This beautiful, hand poured, shell candles are made from vegetable wax! When purchasing please remember wax doesn’t always appear perfect. Small imperfections may occur or there may be a lightly frosted look that usually goes unnoticed however, we will try and get them exactly the same every time. These candles are often used for home décor but if you wish to burn the candles, please note that soy wax normally melts quickly so it is advisable to place the candle on a small non-flammable plate. Don’t worry if you do get it on a surface as warm soapy water will usually have it off in no time. If you have a colour request or different fragrance please pop me an message and I can see what I can do! Please note - Candles may take up to 2 weeks to dispatch as these are all made to order! ***BURNING INSTRUCTIONS***1.
