Is It Legal To Decorate Candles With Crystals, Dried Flowers and Herbs?

At Lemon Canary, we love creating personalised and custom candles with beautiful arrangements of crystals, dried flowers and other embellishments. When made with love and intention this type of feature crystal candle is special, one-of-a-kind and amazing gift.

But a question we are occasionally asked about candles with crystals in them is…

“Is putting crystals and dried flowers on a candle legal?”

or…

“Is that safe?”

The short answer is… yes.

It is legal and a candle made correctly with crystals and dried flowers in this way is as safe as any other candle.

So why do some people spread untruths about beautifully decorated crystal candles? And why does some of this criticism come from amateur and professional candle makers?

She loved the gifts, but when the end of year haul came home there were few presents that really stood out. I didn’t mind… it was the many boxes of chocolate I was more interested in!Read More

Chemical-Free Aussie Beekeeper Cautions Beeswax Candle Users… Learn What High Demand For Local Beeswax Is Doing To The Bees.

Aussie Beekeeper, Chris Blamire, has added fuel to the debate on whether all beeswax candles are better, healthier and more sustainable than natural scented soy wax candles.

Mr Blamire said, “Natural and organic product lovers might be shocked if they knew the truth about many of the beeswax products available today. Even when the beeswax comes from my own chemical free organic hives, I’m still very cautious and careful about the quality of the wax.”

So what could be wrong with such an incredible wax made by the honey bee, one of the most amazing creatures on planet earth? Is this beekeeper a vegan, animal loving eco warrior who won’t use or consume anything produced from or by an animal out of principle? We asked him, this is what he said, “No, I’m not vegan but I do think there’s a lot to be said for a plant based diet. And I’m not an animal activist… But I love bees and they’re in trouble. And when the bees are in trouble, we are in trouble”.Read More
