Part of our mission at The Harmos Company is to create harmony between people and our environment. This means using materials that are sustainably sourced, fair trade and vegan friendly, with minimal impact on the planet.
Many candles on the market are made from paraffin or soy wax, both of which have an impact on the planet. Paraffin wax is generated from non-renewable fossil fuels and also emits toxins when burnt, harming both our ecosystem and our lungs. Soy wax is derived from the soya plant, the second largest cause of deforestation in South America.
At The Harmos Company, we use a natural blend of coconut and rapeseed wax, sourced from a UK based supplier. Our wax blend is expertly crafted to protect our rainforests, reduce emissions and is locally sourced to reduce our carbon footprint.

We hand-make all of our products within an eco-friendly system in which we only use rainwater as our source of water. We made this decision to reduce our impact on the environment through protecting our ecosystems and wonderful wildlife.
