What first started off as an idea on a weekend away to make our own candles, quickly developed in to a hobby in the kitchen. We thought others may like to experience the candles so we made the decision to start sharing them with you all. We have not looked back since.
We started to test all sorts of waxes and fragrances to create the perfect blend for you all to enjoy as we do. After lots of testing and creation, Amber & Tonic (it's more difficult than you think to name your first business), a small family run business evolved, specialising in luxury handmade wooden wick candles and wax melts.
Our desire was to create luxury handmade candles that were free from harmful paraffin. Using a small batch approach, each candle and melt is hand poured using 100% soy wax. Soy wax is derived from the soybean and is a renewable, natural alternative to traditional petroleum based paraffin wax. Paraffin wax creates toxins when burned, collecting in your home. Burning soy wax as an alternative is clean burning, biodegradable and sustainable. Accompanied with our sustainable wooden wicks, our candles burns longer and cleaner. Please see our candle care section for getting the most out of your candle.
Having been a vegetarian all my life I was determined to make these candles as eco-friendly as possible with a growing range of fragrances to enlighten your senses. They are 100% vegan with no animal products whatsoever. Our amber jars are made from quality thick glass, moulded to create a heavy and robust base, which can easily be recycled or re-used, for say, a Gin & Tonic! They are all hand poured in our home in Surrey, We really hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
