Hopping Hare candles are all hand made in the UK. We offer a range of essential oil candles and a range of fragrance oil candles because we are all different just like our sense of smell so what appeals to one person, is not someone else’s cup of tea. Our collections have been carefully curated to offer choice of familiar and unusual combinations.
Hand blended, hand poured, hand made!
The essential oils are blended by hand, added to rapeseed plant wax and are poured, again by hand, in small batches into recycled glass. The reason that we choose rapeseed wax for this range is because it is a sustainable crop, unlike some natural waxes like soy, and it has excellent scent 'throw' properties for our essential oil blends, gently and gradually releasing the essential oils from the wax pool.
Our essential oil candles are pure and natural.
We only use the finest, therapeutic grade essential oils and nothing else in these candles. Pure yet compelling, there is a high concentration of essential oils in each candle.
We only produce our candles in limited quantity so that we can take time to make and finish these candles to the highest standard, ensuring perfect burns for every candle and because they are all made and finished by hand, each candle is unique.
Exotic and unusual combinations.
We also offer a range of more traditional fragrance oil candles, some of which will be familiar combinations which we know are loved and trusted, as well as some more exotic and unusual combinations which we hope will soon become firm favourites too. We use a unique blended wax for these candles that work very well with our fragrance oils to give the best possible scent ‘throw’.
Our candles are carefully wrapped in tissue and presented in beautiful black and white boxes, finished with ribbon and wax seals so that each one feels special.
If you are buying a candle as a gift, you can purchase one of our 3 part rigid gift boxes which are sturdy enough for onward postage or to just make a candle gift feel even more special.
We sell our candles through this website and at major craft exhibitions and fairs all over the UK. To see our live events schedule please click here.
