Fragrance and flames

The Flaming Wolf Candle Co's evocative, handmade, vegan and natural scented candles, diffusers and more – definitely to be sniffed at!

Being a highly fragrant bunch here at Muddy, we’re a bit obsessed with scented candles (we can’t get enough of them).  Luckily for us, so is Shelley Godenho from the Croydon-based Flaming Wolf Candle Co, who turned her candle habit into a business, with her naturally made range of fragrant, handmade candles.

It goes without saying that the scents are divine. They can lift your mood, help you relax or revitalise – and they’re incredibly evocative. The warm and fresh scents of lime, basil and mandarin are reminiscent of home sweet home.  Tuscan herbs conjures up holidays in sunny climes. Light up the Damson plum, rose and patchouli and you could be in an English country garden. *Sigh*

There are 24 different fragrances in total – which includes unusual combinations we’ve not seen elsewhere – black plum and rhubarb, dark honey and tobacco, jade orchid and lotus blossom, rock salt and driftwood. But there’s plenty of classics too including lavender spa, lemongrass and ginger, luscious vanilla.

But what makes The Flaming Wolf candles really special is that they’re vegan and naturally made using EcoSystem RCX rapeseed oil and coconut wax which is completely free from paraffin, soy, palm, beeswax and artificial additives. The wax has a lovely texture and produces a clean-burning candle – so less soot and chemicals, and – bonus – a longer burn than traditional paraffin candles.

The cotton and linen wicks are made from unbleached cotton, interwoven with a linen thread. And all the fragrance oils are vegan friendly and paraben free.

The range includes tea lights, three-wick candles, tumbler candles, travel tins, paint tin candles, votives and wax melts, as well as a diffuser is extensive. And another thing we love about The Flaming Wolf Candle Co is that they also do bespoke orders – so perfect for wedding favours, corporate gifts, and school fundraising events.

Each candle and product is created and hand poured by Shelley in small batches – with Kinson, her rescued Alaskan Malamute, and her other furry friends by her side. Shelley is passionate about living minimally and sustainably, and so her aim is to source locally and consciously – from the fragrances o the packaging and posting. She’s keen to be as green as can be.

Candles not your thing? Check out their equally fragrant long-lasting reed diffusers. There’s even one for your car!

They’re fab if you’re giving as a gift but let’s be honest, we all know we’ll be keeping these beauties for ourselves.
