Our Candles are made here in Bude, Cornwall.
Using North Cornwall beach sand or St Austell silver china clay sand
They are made to an ancient method of pouring hot wax straight into a hole made in the moist sand.
Changing the pouring time and moisture of the sand gives different effects to the outer shell.
Once the outer shell of the wax and sand has started to solidify the liquid wax from the inside of the candle is removed.
The candle is separated, and the loose sand brushed off.
The second hot wax pour is added into the sand bowls. Using a range of coloured wax and fragrances and
different effects to give individual finishes to poured wax.
Making each BANFORDS candle one of a kind.
