The Experience

Pluviophile Rain Candle, unique to Haeckels, is a soy wax candle that evokes the smell of rain on dry earth, of sea water and crushed shells.


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.

The Science



Mycelium is the root system of mushrooms (fungi) and is usually found underground where, tiny white hyphae weave together like threads. Within our packaging, these threads intertwine with agricultural waste such as sawdust, flax and hemp husks and are left to grow into a mould for a period of time. As the mycelium grows, it binds the waste together to form a firm structure. 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 and impact resistant. After use, 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. For the 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 large enough, transfer them to your garden for the birds and bees to enjoy.
