So what sets Thistle & Wax apart from other candle makers?

It's simple really. Every aspect of a Thistle & Wax candle is created with the environment in mind.


Each eco-friendly candle consists of:

  • Glass jars and wooden lids - that can be infinitely recycled

  • Sustainably grown coconut & rapeseed wax - which is biodegradable and non-toxic

  • Cruelty-free and vegan fragrance oils - to make your candles smell divine

  • Paper labels - made from 100% recycled waste


But it’s not just the candles that are zero waste. Every order is packaged using:

  • Recycled cardboard boxes

  • Shredded paper waste for padding

  • Paper tape


Wherever possible, we do our best to minimise waste and our impact on the environment. 

Our materials are glass, wood and kraft paper that are all recyclable. 

Our wax blend is vegan and it contains no nasties such as dyes, parabens, palm or synthetic additives.
