Our Favourite Way To keep Cosy As The Darker Nights Draw In...

Our Favourite Way To keep Cosy As The Darker Nights Draw In...

With the clocks now back an hour and nightfall setting in before dinner, my post-work routine includes lighting some natural candles. A few beautifully scented candles create a warm atmosphere that inevitably relaxes my mood and lifts my spirits.

But choose wisely – not all candles are created equal! Candles made with paraffin wax, a biproduct of the oil refining industry, contain traces of toxic chemicals that could be harmful for people with respiratory conditions. Paraffin is not biodegradable, and even the wicks can be harmful – some brands contain a lead or other metal wick core that can release toxic emissions when burnt.

Candles at Apothecary 27 have been sourced with the environment and your wellbeing in mind. We have curated a wonderful collection of ethical candles that will give your home a beautiful glow and wonderful scent without damaging the atmosphere around you!

Out of the Woods is a local candle company that creates soy wax candles with eco wicks in glass jars, hand-poured in creator Hannah Black’s log cabin in Surrey. She uses only high-quality frangrance oils to create intoxicating seasonal scents – on our shelves right now are Winter Is Coming (orange, cinnamon, spices), Pumpkin Pie, Cinnamon Buns and many other seasonal scents!

Inzho Candles links its scents to spirit animals. This local company makes soy wax candles with aromatherapy oils blended to channel your inner spirit animal. Each scent represents a different animal, with essential oil components reflecting particular characteristics. From Bear/Courage to Elephant/Wisdom to Grasshopper/Luck, the candles are presented in amber jars that can be reused or returned to Inzho for a discount on your next purchase.

Our latest addition is a selection of candles and diffusers from P.F. Candle Co. This independent, US-based company produces exquisite vegan, cruelty-free, phthalate-free candles that have made their name worldwide for their unique scents and environmental integrity. Hand-poured soy wax candles in amber glass jars, with brass lids and apothecary-style labels look gorgeous in any setting. Scents include Amber & Moss, Patchouli Sweetgrass, Teakwood & Tobacco and Sandalwood Rose.

Pop into the shop to have a sniff and choose a candle to (literally) brighten your week!
