At Langtree Botanics we create artisan plant-based candles, naturally fragranced with essential oils. Langtree Botanics soy wax products are hand poured in small batches using only the finest ingredients. Ethics and sustainability are at the heart of our values and creativity.
Here are six reasons to buy eco-conscious candles:
Vegetable wax: Every Langtree candle is made using 100% natural eco soy wax which produces a soft creamy candle. Langtree Botanics soy wax is fully biodegradable and is a renewable resource that doesn’t release toxins when burnt. It also contains no pesticides or herbicides and is an environmentally friendly alternative to paraffin wax. It is also water soluble so it is easy to clean off surfaces.
Essential oils: Langtree’s candles and aroma truffles are all made from essential oils rather than synthetic fragrance oils. Whilst fragrance oils often have a more potent scent and are inexpensive, they are artificially produced in a laboratory, and do not have any therapeutic benefits as essential oils do. At Langtree Botanics we only use high grade sustainable essential oils from reputable suppliers. Our essential oil blends are tested and approved according to UK trading standards law.
Eco-conscious wicks: Our coreless wicks are manufactured from pure cotton with thin paper filaments that are interlaced to give a more consistent and stable burn. The wicks are also self-trimming, which results in a reduction in mushrooming and also a reduction in smoke and soot, creating a cleaner, non-toxic burn.
Glass containers: Langtree’s beautiful frosted glass jars are recyclable and reusable. Once you’ve burnt your candle, remove and dispose of the left over wax, wash and up-cycle by using as a desk tidy, tea light holder, make up brush pot or even use as a short cocktail glass.
Eco friendly packaging: Langtree packaging reflects the ethics of the products themselves - sustainable and eco friendly. Our paper packaging is made from recycled materials and is recyclable. Inks and glues are non-toxic and vegan.
Plant-based, cruelty free and vegan: Traditionally candles were made using animal fat ‘tallow’. These days some candles are commonly made from beeswax, however our candles have undergone the vigorous Vegan Society scrutiny and are all certified.
