Handmade for Milk & Wood, Under the Lemon Tree, is a luxurious hand poured soy wax candle with tantalising notes of green citrus, lime, basil and sweet orange and warmth from precious woods and amber. This scent evokes the smell of the Mediterannean, sun-drenched squares and shady courtyards where you sip a drink at the local cafe or search for treasures in the local brocante. It’s the smell of warm air scented with herbs and citrus, freedom to set your own timetable and have an adventure. It’s uplifting, it’s evocative, it’s inspiring!
Our hand poured, small batch candle range is eco friendly and made from soy wax candle to give you the biggest and best fragrance distribution which gives off fragrance right to the bottom of the jar. The soy wax in these candles is ethically sourced and very environmentally friendly as it is completely carbon neutral. They have a much slower burn than paraffin wax and have cotton wicks for a clean and consistent burn so you can enjoy your candles for longer.
Only pure essential oils are used and all the fragrance oils are paraben and phalate free so you won’t be putting harsh chemicals into your home.
To ensure an efficient burn, when you initially light your candle let it burn for at least 1 hour so you can see a full melt pool on the top of the candle before you blow it out. This helps maintain a consistent burn, and reduces tunnelling.
With the amber glass jars, don’t allow your candle to burn all the way down to the base. The 60ml candle has around 20 hours burn time.
