See How Our Candles Are Made

Our factory is based the heart of the Wiltshire countryside. Here we still use traditional methods to make our beeswax candles which date back to medieval times.

Founded in 1845, we have been continually refining the blend of wax for our candles and the quality of our ingredients, but many of our production methods remain the same.

The dipping for each candle is a slow process and can take many days, but there is no other method to create tapered candles with such a beautifully smooth finish.

The process is finished by each of the candles being hand-polished, checked for our high standards of quality, and carefully wrapped for delivery.
