Handpoured Beeswax Candles
Beeswax is the only 100% natural wax, and with the highest melting point of all the waxes, our candles burn longer than any other type. They also clean the air, being a natural ioniser. Beeswax, when burnt, emits negative ions which neutralizes pollutants and reduces indoor pollution. They are also hypo-allergenic, with people suffering from asthma and allergies reporting fewer problems through using beeswax candles. They can also help you to sleep better!
Mersea Mudd Shack's candles, are made using Mersea beeswax. We also add a touch of coconut oil for a smoother burn, and a few drops of honey fragrance oil, to enhance the naturally occurring scent in the beeswax, creating a beautiful soothing aroma.
Our hand poured beeswax candles are packaged using eco-friendly materials, including our recycled glass jars - meaning no two candles look the same!
Honey Fragranced Beeswax Melts
Our hand poured Beeswax melts are made from locally sourced Mersea Beeswax, a touch of coconut oil and a few drops of honey fragrance oil, which enhances the sweet and soothing scent naturally found in the beeswax. For use in an oil burner, simply pop a melt in the top, light a tealight underneath and enjoy. Our melts can be used time and time again, until the fragrance is lost.
Packaged in eco friendly paper packaging when sold individually, or in a handmade hessian bag when bought in a pack of 4.
Not only do these egg shaped candles have all the benefits of a normal beeswax candle, but they also have added cute factor! Burning for up to 7 hours, they are perfect as a gift or as part of your table decorations for Easter lunch.
Can be bought individually, or as a set of 6 in an egg box - perfect for Easter!

Skep Beeswax Candle
Bring the sweet soothing smell of beeswax to your home with this lovely little candle made from Mersea Beeswax.
It will still give you at least 3 hours burn time, despite its size!
Heart Shaped Beeswax Melts
A jar of fragranced melts, made using Mersea beeswax. 120g.
Designed to go in an oil burner, these melts will give off their sweet scent for hours.
Available in: Honey, Lavender, Rose, Orange or Lemongrass.
The beauty of beeswax is, if it's wicked properly, it doesn't drip! So these naked (ooh-err!) tealights don't have an aluminium case around them, further reducing waste from packaging.
We would suggest you still put them on a dish or plate, (the base of an oil burner is ideal) to collect the final blob of wax at the end.
Burn time of 4 hours approx.
Sold individually or as a set.

The perfect companion to our bars of soap!
These handy little soap bags are designed to be used in the shower or bath. Simply pop a bar of soap inside, get it wet, rub the bag on the soap inside to create some bubbles and away you go! Made from natural sisal they exfoliate as they go, and have a drawstring at the top meaning you won't lose your soap an can hang it up when you're finished to allow the soap to dry.
And, of course, it's plastic free! What's not to love?!
