About Our Acton's Lock No.7 Scent

We harvested our scent from Acton’s Lock No.7 – a stone’s throw from Haeckels House London in Broadway Market, Hackney. For our first scent out of Margate, we wanted it to be a totally unique scent and a journey along Regent’s Canal.

 

We wanted to make a distinction between the bustling Broadway Market to the calm and serene Regent’s Canal. As you enter the canal path, wild chamomile grows around the entrance. This scent is followed by the mossy path with decaying leaves in October before you arrive at the lock which is nestled in vetivert and amber.

Acton’s Lock No.7 will fill your room with a heady mix of amber and moss.

How To Use

For the first time that you burn your Haeckels candle, allow it to burn for at least two hours, or until the whole top is liquid with wax. This allows for an even burn the next time it is used.

 

Scan the QR code on the back when unlit to be pulled onto a subsection of our site where you will find Inner Sounds by Kelly Lee Owens. Press play, and enjoy an hour of escape.

Packaging Science

Mycelium:

Mycelium is the root system of mushrooms (fungi) and is usually found underground where its tiny white threads weave together. Within our packaging, these threads intertwine with agricultural waste such as sawdust, flax and hemp husks and are left to grow around a mould for a period of time. Once the whole mould has turned white it means that the Mycelium has fully encompassed the form and is acting like glue. It is then removed from the mould and left to grow for an additional short period of time, so it takes on the lovely velvety texture. Once it has been dried, the final product is lightweight, yet fire and impact resistant. After being used for its intended purpose, it can be reused, composted or planted in your garden to improve soil quality.

 

Seed Paper:

Our seed paper is made from recycled paper pulp mixed with wild flower seeds. When feeling green-fingered, place the paper on top of a pot of compost and water well. Make sure the paper has access to light and warmth and keep the soil moist. Once the seedlings have grown big enough, you can transfer them to your garden for the birds and bees to enjoy!
