Multi-wick candles are perfect for this time of the year. With more than one wick, these candles create a warm glow with multiple flames which are comforting and add a cosy feel to a room. Larger candle containers often need more than one wick to distribute the heat evenly, leading to a cleaner and more efficient burn. Larger candles contain more wax and fragrance, therefore having more wicks means the fragrance can distribute over a shorter duration than a single wick candle would. This makes it a great option for larger rooms as the scent will fill the whole room.

Makes Scents Candles started at the end of June 2020 after being bought a candle making kit for beginners. I then developed the concept of up-cycling as a means to step away from the quick fix self care solution. As someone who’s creative with a passion for nature, making plant-based candles was an obvious choice and the wildflower seed idea grew from there.
