I formally established the Candle Cavern in 2009 to offer a selection of candles made from natural resources including Soy Wax, Rapeseed Wax & Beeswax and to develop/promote an interest to those seeking both quality performance and environmental sustainability in their candles. I also feel it important to provide people with access to these within the UK market promoting British business and craftmanship.
Beeswax and the other natural waxes are fantastic mediums to work with and produce an intense and clean burning candle experience. To retain the natural quality of the candles, I try not use any artificial colour with the waxes especially the beeswax. Please have a look at the sections explaining the benefits and advantages of these candle waxes and the links can be found at the top left hand side of this homepage. Beeswax is quite unique as a candle wax medium and acts as a natural air purifier (ioniser) for those sensitive and with allergies.
For scents, I use pure essential oils rather than laboratory created chemical aromas (fragrance oils) and these all tend to have built in therapeutic benefits .
"YOU BREATHE WHAT YOU BURN"
The candles I make are all poured at my workshop in Petersfield, Hampshire.
We are a nation that loves to use and burn candles and I believe that we should endeavour to produce and manufacture those candles ourselves rather than rely on imported goods. There are many excellent chandlers here in the UK offering quality and distinctive candles although many do not get the recognition they deserve.
I have been running beginners courses since 2010 which have been very well received and also a great deal of fun to run.
I will endeavour to develop and grow the choice of candles available at the Candle Cavern however, if you are looking for anything in particuar (not shown) or a bespoke item please do not hesitate to contact me.
All prices in the shop include VAT.
HOLIDAY - the shop will be closed from Thursday 13th November to Saturay 22nd November for holidays
INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS - The shop/checkout process will accept orders from UK and (for orders up to 2kgs) in Europe. Should you wish to make an order and you live outside these areas (or above this weight) please contact me with the details of the order you would like to make (through the 'Contact' page) and I will create a 'Bespoke' order for you with details of how to pay etc.This is due to the hugely variable costs of carriage and I endeavour to minimse the impact and costs where possible.
