circa 1890...



Just a few of the beautiful candles we now
have in stock at the emporium... these ones 
are cast from bottles circa 1890 that were
used to hold lime juice rations for sailors to
prevent scurvy. Imagine thousands of these
bottles at the bottom of the sea! Handmade 
from 100% natural beeswax the elaborately
embossed details look amazing as the bottle
burns down...

lovely beeswax candles...





It's not often I get really excited about a
new product, but I recently stumbled upon
these amazing beeswax candles handmade 
by a very inspirational husband & wife team.
Each candle is cast from a unique antique
jar and there are many designs & sizes to
choose from. Not only does beeswax burn
brighter, cleaner and longer than any other
wax but it also leaves zero carbon footprint.
Now at the emporium !!
