The Old Lighthouse

Welcome to my home, The Old Lighthouse. My name is Alex and I love being able to create beautiful, natural and practical scented candles for you. But The Old Lighthouse is more than high quality handmade candles, it's a way of lighting some hope on the world. With the support of people like you, The Old Lighthouse raises money for people that really need our help. The Old Lighthouse supports Christadelphian Meal-a-Day Asia-Pacific Ltd. by donating 1/3 of the profits of each item sold. Meal-a-Day (www.meal-a-day.asia) is a global charity, providing local support and relief to some of the poorest communities in the world. Since the 1970s, Meal-a-Day has supported hundreds of sustainable projects around the world, run by members of the local community and their supporters – each helping to overcome the effects of hunger, disease, disability and homelessness and vitally, bringing new hope. Each candle is handmade in Melbourne using the highest quality environmentally sustainable and 100% natural soy wax (Golden Wax 464). Benefits of Golden Wax: - nontoxic. - completely natural and renewable resource. - clean burning. - produces measurably less soot than other waxes, when burned correctly Golden Wax is virtually soot free. - candle spills clean up much easier than other wax spills; simply use soap and hot water to get the wax out of carpets or upholstery. - Golden Wax 464 is a pure soy wax blended with a soy-based additive and is natural and kosher. The soy-based additive enables the soy to be poured at a hotter temperature reducing frosting and increasing fragrance load. This particular soy wax is considered one of the best for container candles because it throws fragrance really well when the wax is cold and hot. Each candle is given critical individual attention and uses only the finest fragrance oils, colour chips and wicks. The wicks are made from all natural fibres and contain no lead or other harmful metals. I take pride in my work. I personally create every item that I sell. All work takes place in a smoke-free environment, and each piece is inspected closely to ensure the highest quality. I'm a small home business which also means I can focus on exceptional customer service. All this is to provide you with high quality candles which you will love burning in your home or giving as gifts to your loved ones. I make every effort to source the materials of each candle from Australian suppliers. I don't just want satisfied customers - I want ecstatic customers that are confident in their decision to buy from me again and again. I welcome your questions, comments, and suggestions and can be contacted through Zibbet. Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoy browsing my range of handmade candles.
