Other Useful Information

All of our candles are made in small batches since this is the best way to ensure that our high-quality standards are maintained. Stock is replenished monthly (sometimes more, depending on the season). When a candle becomes 'out of stock' on the website, it will not be available to order again until the next scheduled batch production.  As a customer and if you have signed up to receive notifications, you will be advised of stock replenishment as and when it occurs.
