What’s inside your eco-luxury Amaura candle?
Did you know that when paraffin scented candles are burned, they give off particles so small that you could fit a thousand of them across a single human hair? These can get into your blood stream and have been associated with health problems including asthma and cardiovascular disease.
It’s also worth noting that since our wax is natural it is different from normal paraffin waxes. When the candle solidifies after a burn it may look a little lumpy or have rough tops – don’t worry, once you relight the wick, (after trimming) this effect disappears and your candle will return to a gorgeous pool of clean melted wax.
We use this complex blend to get a stronger, longer lasting more sophisticated fragrance combined with the therapeutic benefits of essential oils.
Essential oils are not only highly aromatic, but the natural chemical composition of many essential oils offers therapeutic benefits, which was really important to us when creating the Amaura range. Our range provides the best of both worlds.
We use a high percentage of quality fragrance and essential oil blends in our candles and diffusers, which are hand mixed and poured so the aroma lasts all the way to the end of its life.
The use of essential oils has exploded recently, and these potent plant extracts are in high demand. But before diving into this trend we came across the question of sustainability. For example it takes 40 to 60 rose petals to produce a single drop of rose essential oil — that’s 600 pounds of rose petals for a single ounce of essential oil! That didn’t sound to eco-friendly to us. But some oils such as those that come from citrus fruits, are easy to obtain in vast quantities. However not all plants contain essential oil in such quantity. So for us it was about creating the most sustainable, natural, quality luxury candles we could. All our fragrances and essential oils conform to the International Fragrance Association (IFRA), which ensures that chemicals used are non-toxic and safe for human use.
All of our fragrances are paraben free, vegan and not tested on animals.
the wickWe use natural cotton braided lead free wicks. They are not dipped in paraffin either. But you must TRIM your wick after each use in order to ensure an even burn. The unique weave structure will reduce the appearance of unsightly black soot whilst it is lit, providing a cleaner, healthier burn.
the vesselOur unique artisan candle vessels are hand spun made from pure brass, copper and stainless steel. Made from recycled materials and 100% recyclable they can be recycled again and again.
The best thing about our vessels compared to glass, or ceramic vessels is that they are extremely environmentally friendly because these metals can be infinitely recycled which takes up less energy than is needed to produce them. They are lighter than glass, so when transporting them they create a lower carbon footprint and they don’t need as much protective wrapping, hence using less single use plastic.
Best of all you can upcycle your vessel and repurpose it in numerous ways. See our page on upcycling to get some ideas.
our diffusersOur eco-friendly non-toxic reed diffuser are hand blended in the UK using a sustainable base. This is an alcohol and glycol free base made from renewable sources with no petrochemicals. It is non-toxic and has a low carbon footprint.
Our diffusers provide optimal evaporation giving a long lasting aroma to fill your room all day long.
our packagingYou should be able to use your local recycling service to recycle most items.
But here’s the low down on all our packaging and how we have worked hard to make it as eco-friendly as possible.
- Candle and diffuser boxes are made from recyclable and biodegradable paper.
- Gift boxes are made from recycled materials and are fully recyclable.
- 100% recycled tissue paper is used in our gift boxes.

- Thank you cards are made from FSC certified paper, meaning they are made from responsible sources and have been verified to meet FSC's strict environmental and social standards.
shipping boxesObviously, we need to use boxes to ship our products, but we have worked hard to source boxes that are made from recycled materials and recyclable.
our commitment to being eco-friendlyThis is just the start of our journey and we are committed to doing all we can through small sustainable steps and the choices we make for our products. We are already working hard in the background on refillable options and how we can reduce waste and invest in using recycled materials.
