Eco-Antique Teacup Candles

For a truly unique gift option Helen transforms over two hundred years worth of British tea porcelain into the purest burning organically scented candles.

Her candles are all hand poured by herself and are made of sustainable vegan sunflower wax and scented with organic essential oils, sourced from a physic garden in Somerset. Scents include such lovely combinations as lemon verbena and bay, orange and geranium, rose geranium and lavender.

Burn your beautiful clean ecologically sound candle and then wash and keep your exquisite piece of historic British porcelain, or just pop it back to Helen for a refill!

With a 30 year background in the antiques trade, the antique and vintage porcelain that Helen sources, dates from 1780 onwards and each piece is accompanied by a brief hand written history.

Your average teacup will burn approximately 40 hours, with some of the larger bowls burning for up to 250 hours.

Gift box options are available on the website and she is more then happy to send direct to your gift recipient with a personal note from you included. Or save on postage and buy up to 10 pieces for the same postage cost as one. The perfect two in one gift!
