Everything that goes into an Essence + Alchemy candle is listed on the packaging: plant wax, essential oils and a natural wood wick, which when lit will crackle and glow giving out a warm glow and calming, aromatic scent. Nothing else goes into these candles - no synthetic fragrances, no additives, just pure and natural botanical goodness.
Always mindful of the environment, Essence + Alchemy's minimal packaging is made from 100% recycled card. The hand-blown borosilicate glass jar is recyclable and more importantly reusable - why not use your jar afterwards for a small potted plant, tea light holder, or a place for pencils and pens.
