What IS a natural candle?

And why are they BETTER?

Once you try NEOM candles you won't go back. Yep, they're different to other candles - we're that confident. And here's why...

1 - WE only ever use 100% natural wax. Never paraffin! (which is a crude oil derivative). It has been claimed that paraffin wax releases toxic fumes when burnt - and this 2009, study confirmed it. So the result is... no black soot, no pillaring, so you get the benefit of every last ounce. 

2 - WE only use cotton and paper wicks. Never any metals or tin, making them completely clean burning. Our original candle was developed with 3 wicks so the essential oils fill the room after just 20 minutes. 

3 - WE only use 100% natural fragrances with the purest possible essential oils - no synthetics - no artificial colours, no scent boosters, no preservatives, no chemical binders. Just pure 100% natural wax and 100% natural essential oils. 

4 - WE put around 30ml fragrance in each of our 3 wick candles. That's 3 - 4 bottles of essential oils. Using the purest possible natural essential oils which have either steam distilled from petals (think jasmine and rose) or cold expressed to retain their fresh quality (think citrus fruits like lemon and lime). 

5 - WE only hand mix and hand pour each and every candle, so the fragrance is evenly distributed and is as special at the bottom as it is at the top!

6 - WE only expertly blend the most purposeful essential oils with one another, making OUR blends super-complex (no single notes of lavender here guys) that truly work on your wellbeing and you sleep, de-stress, boost your energy or lift your mood. 

OUR candles have been a hit since 2005 and here's what our customers have said over the years...
