About The Eco Witch Co.
I graduated with a Fine Art degree in 2019, and after experiencing the many highs and lows of university life, I was keen to re-ground myself within a practice that was close to my heart and which did not necessarily fit within the fine art world that I had briefly come in contact with during the three years previous.
Art has always played a vital role in my life and from a young age I would draw, paint and sculpt during every free moment that I had therefore my progression to candle-maker doesn't feel too unusual. The process of researching ingredients, designing the product to creating the final physical result, is one which I find incredibly rewarding and so it is my hope that this passion for my work is evident when you try a product from The Eco Witch Co.
Over the past couple of years, researching plants for medicinal use has become a keen interest of mine and so I have been gradually trying to meld by new knowledge into my candle making. I think both the medicinal, as well as magical associations of botanicals (of which are most commonly rooted in folklore and traditions) work harmoniously together and so I hope to show this in my choices of fragrance and dry herbs. At this moment in time I am unable to be as self-sufficient as I would like in growing my herbs, however it is my wish that one day I will be able to grow as many of the herbs that I use for my candles as possible.
Candle magic, integrated with plant magic is an element of my practice which has persisted throughout the years as it is one which I find the most grounding and fulfilling. My candles are therefore an embodiment of these aspects of my practice combined with a consideration of the medicinal qualities of plants.
The Eco Witch Co. is a one person team, with myself - Charlotte, hand-pouring each and every candle. I pour my candles with soy wax (a plant-based wax) which is GMO-free, biodegradable, vegan and cruelty-free. I use a variation of essential oils and fragrance oils to scent my candles and all oils used are certified vegan and cruelty-free.
I package orders using only the materials necessary to ensure it reaches you safely with the exception of thank you notes and individual candle information and safety sheets. If you order candles, then your items will be securely packaged using maize-based starch packing chips which are both compostable and water soluble. All other elements of the packaging can be recycled.
