Style: standard

A tinned candle that is inspired by Scotland's bothies - wee huts used as refuge in the mountains. Vanilla and smokey chocolate whiskey with a strong peat side.

Grow Candles are handmade on the Isle of Skye with eco soy wax. The label and insert are made from seed paper, packed full of bee-friendly seeds - Sweet Alyssum, Poppy, Baby’s Breath & Basil.

When the candle is gone, simply use the tin as a pot to grow your seeds in!


To make sure your seed paper has the best chance of turning into beautiful flowers:

  • When your candle is done, give the tin a quick wash
  • Tear paper up into small pieces & soak the paper in water or run under a tap.
  • Place 1-2cm of stones at the bottom of the tin, top with soil and then your wet card. sprinkle a small amount of soil on top of the seed card.
  • Keep the soil and paper moist in a warm and light environment, but not constantly wet.
  • Once your small plants have grown, place pot outside or keep on a window that has lots of sun.

Ideally, plant February - July

* Please note that some of these candles have slightly dented or scuffed lids. They are being sold at 20% off the usual price.
