GOING GREENER THE HYGGE WAY…

We are all trying to do our bit to go greener and candles are very much a part of a HYGGE Lifestyle.

They instantly add atmosphere but to keep greener make sure they are 100 per cent beeswax instead of paraffin, which can contribute to air pollution when burned.

Also don’t forget packaging as tea lights come in aluminium cups, which are recyclable but are less eco- friendly than casing-free tapers.

One great site for your greener tea lights and all candles made with beeswax is Five Bees Yard

Their beeswax candles are virtually chemical free. They are safe in contact with food if you want to use them as birthday cake candles. But they will serve your religious purpose as well.

Clean your mind and relax with our 20 minutes + relaxation candles. No fumes, no toxic chemicals. Pure nature enclosed in raw beeswax.

Zero waste – no cup tea lights. Re-use your old cups. Still the same 100% top quality raw beeswax. Unprocessed, untreated, unaltered. Pure nature that is sustainable.

TRY TO RELAX HYGGE STYLE DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC…

If you haven’t heard all about HYGGE then I would be extremely surprised but basically the word ‘Hygge‘originates from a Norweign word meaning ‘well-being‘. For almost five hundred years, Denmark and Norway were one kingdom, until Denmark lost Norway in 1814. ‘Hygge‘ appeared in written Danish for the first time in the early 1800’s, and the link between hygge and well being or happiness maybe no coincidence. Danes are the happiest people in Europe according to the European Social Survey and found in The Little Book of Hygge, The Danish Way to Live Well‘, by Meik Wiking.
