This soy wax candle evokes the scent of waves crashing into the once busy tidal pool, the overgrown grasses and chalk reefs where seaweed grows. Salt water, fresh and green seaweed and sweet distinctive white flowers.
Burn time, approx 40 hours – 270ml
Walpole Bay is a location that is close to our hearts, an uninhabited bay with remnants of beach use in times gone by and only a raw natural beauty left behind to enjoy. A man-made bathing pool bridges the gap between the sea and land, an iconic reminder of a past popularity and a link between man and effects on the nature of the landscape.
Walk along the sandy beach with sand and salt on your skin and take in the aromas of fresh seaweed, the chalk reef and seawater. Listen to the sound of the wind blowing through the long cliff top grasses, black lovage and distinctive white flowers.
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.
Top: aromatic and clean
Heart: intense green sweetness
Base: bitter resinous musk
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.
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.
