Pegwell Bay, an area of unkempt beauty, a natural haven to birds, insects and animals of all shapes and sizes but accessible for man to wonder at its beauty and roam its paths. This soy wax candle evokes the scent of wild fennel growing amongst salt marsh, wild grasses and peppery aromatic greenery.
Burn time: approx 40 hours
Notes: Top: spicy, peppery with notes of aniseed
Heart: aromatic and fresh
Base: green, woody, balsamic
Packaging: Mycelium is the root system of mushrooms (fungi) and is usually found underground. Within the packaging, the Mycelium intertwines with agricultural waste such as sawdust, flax and hemp husks and are left to grow into a mould for a period of time. After use, it can be reused, composted or planted in your garden to improve soil quality.
Seed Paper: The seed paper is made from recycled paper pulp mixed with wild flower seeds. For the green-fingered, place the paper on top of a pot of compost and water well.
