Hello, I'm Mel
I started Rēve out of a passion for natural and beautiful smelling candles. I decided to start making my own when I found out that most commercial candles were made with synthetic ingredients.
Instead of paraffin and artificial fragrances, Rēve candles are made from a luxurious, sustainable blend of soy and coconut wax, infused with essential oils. Hand-poured in small batches, they burn cleanly for hours, and can naturally lift and enhance your mood. They are vegan, and never tested on animals – Gizmo wouldn't approve otherwise!
Rêve means to dream in French and I really hope you enjoy the drēam.

Why natural &
Unlike paraffin candles, plant-based candles don’t release toxic carcinogens into the air. Also unlike paraffin, they are made from a renewable source and are biodegradable.
If you’re using a candle as part of a well-being routine, then paraffin candles aren’t ideal. You want a candle that isn’t filled with synthetic ingredients, you want a candle that binds the power and beauty of natural ingredients.
The wax used is a natural and plant based, it behaves differently to paraffin wax candles. Soy and coconut wax burns cleaner and doesn’t emit toxins into your home.
As a natural product you may see frosting in your wax. This is a unique and natural effect of using vegetable wax. The wax is trying to return back to its natural form and as a result it begins to crystallize. It doesn't affect the performance of the candle in any way and also means your wax is 100% natural.
Another benefit to natural wax is that it burns slower than cheaply manufactured paraffin waxes. This means your candle will last much longer... Bonus!
Why use essential oils
We use essential oils because they are pure and boost your well-being. Blending pure essential oils within natural wax means no synthetic fragrances are used.
Essential oils are used in aromatherapy due to their beneficial properties.
Aromatherapy works by releasing a natural scent using essential oils, these oils have been used for thousands of years to heal and enhance emotional wellness.
Burning these oils will allow you to benefit from their soothing effects creating a well-being experience.
A great solution for those who want to feel supported with calmness, happiness or perhaps unwind after a long day.
The environment is so important to me, we only have one planet, so let's make it a better place.
Rēve candles are created in recyclable jars. When I’m done with mine I love to grow plants in them, I'd love to see how you up-cycle yours!
When posting we use FSC® certified kraft corrugated cardboard - these boxes are not only 100% recyclable, they're printed using eco-friendly plant-based inks too.
All products are hand gift wrapped with natural jute twine, which are composed of biodegradable materials.
We use an eco-friendly wrapping solution of white recyclable tissue paper and brown kraft paper which expands the die cut into a 3D honeycomb structure, a great sustainable alternative to bubble wrap.
No other plastics are used, even our parcel tape is made from renewable kraft paper.
