  • or to make sure it burns beautifully:
    The first time you light your candle, remember to keep it alight for at least two hours, as this prevents the wax ‘tunnelling’. Trim wick to around 0.5cm before each burn, to stop the candle burning too quickly.
    Keep away from children, pets and soft furnishings. Once the candle has burned out, give the shot cup a firm clean.
Why we love this product

For when you’re burning the candle at both ends.

We love that this item is reusable. The talented skills of ceramist Myer Halliday and candle makers Wildheart Organics are combined to create this wonderful piece that not only soothes you with its scent but with its tactility.

Once you have eased your soul with the aromatherapy properties of the candle, it can be cleaned and used as a vessel for coffee, a chocolate pot, sauces or even a small posy, making it a truly timeless item. It will make you smile every time you cup the pot in your hands and take a slow sip.

What our customers say...

I ordered the fabulous Mary Velvet chair to give my sitting room a lift. It has been such a success, so comfortable and very eye catching. The help I received from the AUTHOR team was second to none.
