Coconut and Rapeseed Wax - The best choice on the market
With a rich history in candle making since 2015, I have dedicated myself to perfecting the craft and ensuring the highest quality products. Over the years, I have honed my skills and gained valuable experience in creating exceptional candles. This extensive background allows me to bring expertise and passion to every candle that the business handcrafts.
Having started Tripps - Somerset, my goal was to offer customers something truly special and unique. I wanted to go beyond conventional candles and provide a product that would stand out in terms of both quality and sustainability. That's when I discovered the remarkable benefits of using a blended wax of rapeseed and coconut.
Drawing on my firsthand experience as a candle enthusiast, I understood the importance of clean-burning candles. Unsatisfied with other wax options on the market, many of which were derived from paraffin or petroleum, I was determined to find an alternative that would deliver a cleaner burn without compromising on performance or aesthetic appeal.
By carefully selecting a blend of rapeseed and coconut wax, I found the ideal solution. This choice not only allowed me to create candles that burn cleaner, leaving no unsightly residue on nearby items or within the candle jars, but also aligns with my commitment to sustainability. Knowing that the wax is sourced and blended in Europe further solidifies its environmental credentials.
With each candle I produce, I strive for excellence and attention to detail. This includes ensuring proper wick trimming, following safety guidelines, and employing meticulous craftsmanship throughout the production process. By adhering to these principles, I aim to provide customers with candles that not only emit captivating fragrances but also uphold the highest standards of quality and performance.
As I continue to evolve and innovate in the candle making industry, I remain dedicated to delivering a superior product that brings warmth, ambiance, and delight to your space. With every candle I pour, my experience and expertise blend seamlessly to create an exceptional sensory experience that customers can enjoy and cherish.
From the inception of Tripps - Somerset to the present day, my journey in candle making has been marked by a passion for excellence and a commitment to customer satisfaction. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my love for candles with you and look forward to crafting many more cherished creations in the years to come.
What is Rapeseed?
Rapeseed, also known as oilseed rape or canola, is a bright yellow flowering plant that belongs to the Brassicaceae family. It is widely cultivated for its oil-rich seeds, which are used for various purposes, including cooking oil, biodiesel production, and as an ingredient in animal feed.
Living in Somerset, England, where rapeseed fields are abundant, provides a beautiful and scenic landscape. The sight of expansive rapeseed fields can be quite breathtaking, as the vibrant yellow flowers create a stunning contrast against the green countryside. The gentle sway of the plants in the breeze adds a sense of movement and tranquility to the surroundings.
These fields often evoke a feeling of sunshine and warmth. Looking at the rapeseed fields is akin to gazing at rays of sunshine captured within the natural tapestry of the countryside. The picturesque view serves as a constant reminder of the beauty of nature and its ever-changing nuances.
It's wonderful to have such a captivating view readily available, serving as a source of inspiration and appreciation for the natural wonders that surround us. The rapeseed fields in Somerset contribute to the region's scenic charm and offer a moment of tranquility amidst the busy pace of life.
Capturing the essence of these fields in a photograph above which was taken next to my sister's home, allows for the preservation of the beauty and serves as a reminder of the peaceful moments spent in the presence of nature's splendour.
Why Does My Coconut and Rapeseed Candle Show Lines or Patterns After Burning?
We take pride in using a natural wax without any additives to ensure a clean and eco-friendly burn. The presence of lines or mottling on the surface of the wax after use is completely normal and actually a characteristic of our additive-free wax.
The lines or patterns that may appear are a result of the natural composition of the wax and the absence of artificial chemicals used for appearance purposes. We find these patterns unique and interesting, showcasing the authenticity of the wax.
Additionally, the wax may exhibit polymorphism or frosting, which refers to a crystalline or slightly frosted appearance. This is a natural phenomenon that occurs as the wax tries to revert to its original form. Please rest assured that polymorphism or frosting does not impact the performance or functionality of the candle in any way. It is simply an inherent trait of natural wax.
To ensure the best experience with your candle, we recommend referring to our candle care guide. This guide provides instructions on how to trim the wick, burn the candle safely, and maximise its lifespan. Following these guidelines will help you achieve optimal performance and longevity from your candle.
Thank you for your understanding and support. We hope you continue to enjoy the unique beauty and eco-friendliness of our Rapeseed and coconut blended wax candles.
