Scented Rapeseed Wax Candle – Maed (Meadow)

Gently fragranced candles are made with natural rapeseed wax, a sustainable and non-toxic alternative to standard paraffin or soya wax candles, and scented with essential oils. In attempts to minimise the environmental impact of these candles, non-toxic cotton and linen wicks are used.

The name, Maed, is an Olde English word meaning meadow, which references the uplifting essential oil fragrances of grapefruit, lavender and geranium. The simple, utilitarian style makes them suitable for indoor or outdoor use and when you’re finished with the candle, the glass makes a handy container (or can be easily recycled). Also available in warming Braeden and earthy Denu fragrances.

Each candle is hand-poured in Hertfordshire at workshops for by people with disabilities and mental health illnesses. All purchases help support this social impact company. The packaging is all made in the UK (some of it from recycled coffee cups) and letterpressed using vegetable inks.

On first use, ensure that the candle burns long enough to fully melt the top layer of wax. This will avoid tunnelling (and wastage) of wax. Vegetable waxes burn differently than standard paraffin wax and a better burn quality can be maintained if the wick is trimmed before each use. It may sound obvious, but the glass can get hot. We recommend placing on a coaster and leaving to cool before moving.
