We only use cotton wicks, free from lead. This also helps ensure a clean burning candles :)
At Living Light, we use three main wax types for the candles we create. Each wax is carefully formulated and produced to create a beautiful burning candle!
Pure Soy Wax
Sow wax was invented in the early 1990’s when a candlemaker from Iowa, USA was looking for a cheaper substitute to Bees Wax. Little did he know how popular it would become! Made from hydrogenated soybeans oil, it blends well with other oils such as essential and fragrant oils, and it’s low melting point makes the perfect container candle, as with little heat from the wick, it creates a soft pool of liquid wax allowing the scent to disperse into the air easily.
Plant and NZ Beeswax
Our Plant and NZ Beeswax formulation was created in house 15 years ago. This special blend of natural waxes gives a unique crystalline feature. A very hard wax, it withstands high heat and does not melt in the sun. Our top selling candle - the Icicle is made from this blend. The precise wax mix + fragrance + wick creates the unique sculptural lace-like pattern as it burns, resembling Gaudi’s Cathedral in Spain.
Paraffin is made from petroleum and we no longer make paraffin candles to burn. When we stopped making paraffin candles, we began using the excess wax as vessels. We use a blend of three types of high melting point paraffin to make our designer vessels such as our mini globe lanterns, so they are heat and water resistant. And the best part, is they float in water.
No, we have never tested our products on animals.
Living Light diffusers are packaged carefully to ensure the oil from the diffuser does not spill.
Directions: Unscrew wooden lid and remove the plastic stopper from the decanter. Replace wooden lid and place the reeds into the decanter. The natural reeds will absorb the oil and fill your room with a long lasting fragrance.
Turn or flip the natural reeds occasionally to disburse the the scent at your choosing.
