We love Achill Island and have spent many nights camped out under the stars there. There is a real raw beauty to Achill and at certain times of year the smell at dusk is something special. This is the scent we have captured in this candle. We used a blend of patchouli, heather, bluebells and vetiver to bring that scent to life. There is also a tiny amount of turf from Achill Island ground down in each candle, not so much for the scent it just felt right!
We have developed our own ‘scent profiling’ technique to refine the balance of scents, it can take months and months of development before we are happy to release a new scent. We use a mixture of candle fragrance oils, natural fragrance oil and essential oils to produce scents that are complete one of a kinds.
We use only the finest soy wax we can get our hands on. Soy wax is awesome! Its from a renewable source and I feel that nature intended it for candles! It burns beautifully slow and holds onto scent perfectly. We also use lead free wicks which are perfect for soy wax. Paraffin wax is a by-product of crude oil and gives off smoke when it burns, this is why you get black soot on your lovely walls or inside the candle container. Its the last thing you want to do is fill your lungs with it.
When burning your Bearded Candle we would suggest when you burn it for the first time not to blow it out until the entire surface is liquid wax, this will ensure your candle burns evenly with no wax remaining around the edge of the tin. Thereafter only burn your candle for two or three hours at a time. Your room will still smell great for ages after but the candle will last longer and further prevent the wax from building up around the edge of the tin.
