Our Sustainable Candle Making Kit is perfect for your friend that’s passionate about the environment and a sustainable lifestyle.

It means no extra candle jars are and labels are mass manufactured only to be used once and disposed of.

You can gift this kit as a fun activity for your friend to do or make the candle yourself and personalise the upcycled candle jar with paint, vinyl name decals or cute sustainable wrapping. This candle kit allows you to kill two birds with one stone by making two 100g candles to gift to two friends. If you prefer a larger candle, simply use all of the wax to make one 200g candle.
