Ecology is at the core of Essence + Alchemy and everything created is designed and made to have minimal impact on the earth and it's organisms. Packaging is always minimal and made from recycled cardboard.  Boxes, glassware and gold travel tins are made in the UK, they are all recyclable and more importantly reusable for many uses including E+A candle refills.

When sourcing raw materials, they are always sustainable and as locally sourced as possible, for example candles are handmade from rapeseed, a plant which has been grown in Britain for hundreds of years as animal feed and to protect and improve soils.  This pure natural plant wax is made from the oil of the rapeseed plant only.  It is sustainable, GMO free, non-hazardous, biodegradable, harmless to wildlife and because it is grown and manufactured here, it has a lower carbon footprint than other imported plant waxes such as soy, coconut and palm wax and because it is a plant wax it is vegan friendly too.

!! As Essence + Alchemy grows as a brand, sustainable and ethical working has only become more and more entwined; as product expands, the same care is implemented

The truth is: the natural world is changing and we are totally dependent on that world.  It provides our food, water and air.  It is the most precious thing we have and we need to defend it.
