We have a rather unique selection of candles! Here is a quick guide:
Peter Neumann's - If one were to try to imagine a candle that personifies the alternative image of Totnes, then one would need to look no further than these candles by Peter Neumann!
The Candles and Incenses are created from a blending with aromatherapy oils and in the mind of their creator have their roots, as a celebration of the gifts of nature. So just like a jeweller will take different materials and nature's stones to make a piece of jewellery, so does Peter consider colour and scent to be nature's jewels, and he similarly "alchemically" fashions them to be the finest expression of these materials.
Organic of Heaven Scent - What makes this range of candles from Heaven Scent quite exceptional, is that they are made from plant wax and NOT paraffin. Wicks are of cotton and any glass used in the product is from a recycled source. Where a candle has a fragrance it has been created from essential oils. Heaven Scent have been established in the SW for over 20 years. The demand for their products is such that at times there is a waiting list of several weeks to get restocked. If you are tempted to buy one, the advice is do it now, for tomorrow it may be sold out for some weeks!
Beeswax- We found this wonderful selection of beeswax candles at a trade fair around 15 years ago. We import them from Germany and in spite of the drop in value of Sterling against Euro, we are still able to give a good price. As you see some of the candles have been formed from simply the rolling of a beeswax sheet, while in some of the solid candles that are described as 'marbled', the beeswax has been blended in such a way, to give it an eye catching structure. Finally, but from a different source you will find a product 'Klebwachs'. It is simply a very sticky beeswax and is perfect for securing a candle within its holder and for even mounting a candle on a flat dish.
