Everything created by Kiss the Moon is made with care and respect for the environment: using only natural ingredients including pure essential oils, with nothing artificial added. Each candle is hand-poured in small batches in the UK and made using natural pure soy wax, and the highest grade, braided cotton wicks to maximise the burn time with no visible black soot. Glow is a blend of warm citrus Orange notes mingled with gentle floral Geranium, an uplifting fragrance that brightens the mood at bedtime.

These Growing Candles are zero-waste, eco-friendly and vegan. Starting out as luxurious, naturally fragranced candles, they transform into a pot of wildflowers creating a healthy atmosphere for you and the planet. The clever thing is that all the labels around the candles have seeds embedded into them. Once all the soy wax is gone, simply fill your container with soil and then plant the label – just like any other seed!

The scents are designed to transport you to memorable moments and places; each candle is like a travel experience in its own right.

For every candle purchased, M&J Ethical Luxury make a donation to the London based women’s charity, Nia, who are committed to fighting against violence against women in many forms.
