Handmade in Warkworth using 100% natural soy wax, Earth Candles are a boutique low-waste option for all candle lovers. This family-run business has a strong focus on waste reduction, and hand-pour their selection of candles into repurposed wine and beer bottles.
Starting by salvaging empty bottles from friends and various local businesses in and around the Warkworth and Matakana area, they then start a meticulous process of de-labelling and cleaning all salvaged bottles, carefully cutting the top off each bottle, and finish by grinding and polishing the edge to leave a smooth surface. Not only does each vessel look attractive, but they can also be reused or recycled once the candle has burnt out.
These stunning candles make wonderful gifts, with each of the distinct fragrances chosen to evoke and create precious memories of our beautiful country.
We also stock 360g candles in repurposed wine bottles here.
- Cape Reinga Cliffs - a perfume that embodies the spirit of a place where an ancient Pohutukawa tree grows. With the initial whiff of bamboo, lime and ginger, the fragrance finally settles into the deliciously woodsy fragrance of black cardamom and sandalwood with mid floral notes of Lily of the Valley and Jasmine.
- Lake Wanaka Retreat - take relaxation to a whole new location. Enjoy a clean and delicate combination of bergamot, jasmine, and ylang-ylang, infused with grounding rosewood fragrance oils reminiscent of the earthy and woodsy fragrance of trees by the lake. Top notes of bergamot and jasmine hint to the abundance of flowers growing among the trees.
- Raglan Vibes - feel the vibes of this hippy seaside town. Breathe in the smell of the sun, sand, sea and surf with a perfume inspired from the sights, sounds and smells of Raglan. The fresh citrus and tropical fruit fragrances form the top notes which slowly meld into deeper spicy notes - so reminiscent of the vibrant and lovely Raglan and its community.
- Cooks Candle - this long-lasting and clean burning soy candle is designed to neutralise nasty cooking odours from your home after the cooking is done and the meal enjoyed. A unique fragrance blend of Vanilla, Bergamot and Basil will leave your home smelling wonderfully fresh
