Q: What type of wax are Zuna candles made from and why?
A: Our candles are made from 100% natural vegetable wax. We blend soy wax with rapeseed wax (EU sourced). Our wax is GM free. Soy and rapeseed waxes are renewable, biodegradable, look great, are clean burning and work perfectly with essential oils.
Q: Do your candles contain paraffin wax?
A: Absolutely not. We do not want to use paraffin was because it has been shown in some studies to emit harmful chemicals when burnt. This can be especially problematic in enclosed spaces. Paraffin wax is not renewable, is normally combined with synthetic fragrances, tends to be ‘sooty’, is not fully biodegradable, has a high melting point (less safe) and spillages are difficult to clean up.
Q: What are your wicks made from?
A: Natural materials (cotton with linen supports).
Q: How long does your 30cl candle burn for?
A: Up to 50 hours.
Q: Why do you use essential oils?
A: We have chosen not to use artificial fragrances in our candles because some studies have shown that artificial fragrances can emit harmful chemicals, even when you’re not burning them. Some people find that exposure to artificial scents can cause headaches and other adverse reactions. Additionally, aromatherapy is based on the use of pure essential oils (not synthetic scents), which have known therapeutic benefits for our mind and body. We think essential oils smell so much better too!
Q: What is aromatherapy?
A: Aromatherapy is the art of using plant-based essential oils to maintain or improve our physical, psychological or spiritual wellbeing. The word aroma is derived from Greek and simply means an agreeable or pleasant odour or fragrance and the term therapy can be described as treatment to bring about a positive change. We’ve got lots of interesting information about aromatherapy on our blog page.

Q: The appearance of my candle wax isn’t completely uniform– why is this?
A: Because our candles are made from natural wax and natural essential oils, there can sometimes be slight changes in the appearance of the wax. This is to be expected and will not affect the quality or burn of your candle and is nothing to worry about. We like to think of it as every candle being unique!
