Esh candles are made prodominitaly with natural Soy Wax. Some of our candles also contain Beeswax, Vegetable, and Paraffin wax all manufactured in Europe. We also use organic pigment dyes, recyled cotton wicks, cold-pressed essential oils, and paraben free fragrance oils. See each products description for a detailed breakdown of all materials and ingredients used.
If you do choose to burn your candle, you can dispose of any leftover wax remnants, in your home compost or garden waste bin. All our candles are naturally biodegradable and will break down over time.
Some of our candles are made with essential oils (see product description), so we recommend using a wax burner to get the most out of your candle burn.
