Hello and welcome to Luna Candles, my name is Gemma, I'm the creator, designer, pourer, tester, packer and everything in between.
After working in the Health and Wellness industry for over 20 years, I have come to understand the importance of Selfcare and the need to just take little moments when you can, to pause and unwind.
Luna candles are hand-poured in small batches in the outskirts of Edinburgh, Scotland designed to stimulate your senses and transport you to your Happy Place.
Our candles and Botanical Wax Melts are made with a natural blend of sustainably sourced coconut and rapeseed wax infused with the finest Fragrance Oil and Essential Oils. Free from Soy, Paraffin, Palm, Beeswax, Dyes and synthetic dyes.
Our Rapeseed and Coconut wax certainly has excellent credentials regarding sustainability. Most of the coconut used in our wax comes from small holder farmers in the Philippines or Indonesia (approximately one third of Filipino farmers and their families make their living from coconut production). There is no forest removal in order to plant new coco trees and all farming contacts are closely monitored in that regard. Furthermore, our supplier is pioneering a programme to train more farmers on sustainable coconut agricultural practices.
Our supplier has advised that the rapeseed used is produced by large farmers in a range of European countries, and that rapeseed isn't associated with sustainability issues such as endangering habitats, forest clearance, etc.
