New Fragrance Oil Sizes & Bottles!

As an environmentally conscious company, we are constantly looking for new ways to improve our environmental footprint. During Summer 2018, we embarked on a new project in order to tackle our single-waste plastic consumption.

Whilst our previous plastic bottles were already fully recyclable, our new aluminium bottles are more widely recyclable. As we also ship both domestically and internationally across the EU, we know that upgrading to aluminium bottles is going to be much easier for our customers.

The first stage of this project has already begun, with the 50ml sizes being discontinued in our Escentscia Fragrance Oil Range. This size has been replaced with a 20ml size (which is great for testing purposes) and a 75ml size.

Our US Style Fragrance Oil Range will also update to this new format beginning Monday, 17th December. In the upcoming months, we will also extend this upgrade to our other fragrance oil sizes.

As we dispatch tens of thousands of bottles of fragrance oil every yea…

Community Candle Project

For the last two weeks, our team have been carrying out two projects in our local area with the local Rainbows and Brownies group! The 39 children loved decorating their own tart burners and making their own scented wax melts and tealights for their family as Christmas presents!

Not only did the children have a great time, they also developed new skills including developing their confidence and abilities whilst also gaining life skills. Watch out for the next generation of candle makers!

Freakishly-Fun Halloween Candles

We chose the following colours and fragrances: Inpex Candle Whitener with US Style Liquorice FragranceOrange Inpex Deep Dye with US Style Pumpkin Souffle FragranceFluorescent Green (used at a lower percentage to create a ‘slime’ colour) with US Style Strudel & Spice FragranceFluorescent Green (used at a higher percentage to create a ‘Frankenstein’ colour) with 50/50 US Style Crème Brulee and US Apple fragrances to create a toffee apple scent!

Candle Making Tip: Cold-Water Bath Method

Introduction: For many candle makers, the cold-water bath method is a great way to increase efficiency when making wax tarts/melts and moulded candles. Traditional cooling methods may take several hours before a candle/melt can be released from its mould however, by using the cold-water bath method, this can be greatly reduced to around 10-15 minutes (depending on your mould.)

The cold-water bath method also enhances the finish of your candle or melts and helps to create a much glossier finish!

Our other candle making guides/tips can be found here!
Method: Once you have poured your candle or wax melt, wait for the candle or melt to develop a thick skin; the length of time that this take depends on the size of your candle/melt, your pouring temperature, water temperature, and your mould. Once this has happened and your poured candle wax is no longer molten, (yet still squidgy to the touch) fill a bucket or container with cold water. Submerge your candle or melt completely into the w…
