School Dinners Soy Wax Scented Candle Black
This scent is about school puddings and raiding the tuckshop with the money that was for the bus fare home or a school trip. I looked forward to these moments at school because it was the treat I couldn't have at home. It was mine. I didn't have to share it.
This will be donating to food banks. Particularly for kids. There was a period in my early years when we had very little and relied upon food from others. To this day it affects me. I tell you this as its important and it explains why I am doing this.
Smell this and feel so happy as if it fills you up with food, as if Willy Wonka has invited you round for tea.

Pink custard, warm sponge cake, white chocolate mice, hundreds of thousands, so sweet your mouth hurts and your head spins. Fizzy sherbet, sponge fingers, spotted dick with raisins the size of your thumb, white bread fresh out of the toaster loaded with terrible wheat and sugar. Bananas smeared on pancakes with maple syrup on that balcony whilst on holiday for the first time with someone you love.
About The Trussell Trust Trust
If you buy this Good Candle we’ll donate 10% (at least £3) to The Trussell Trust who support a nationwide network of food banks for people locked in poverty. Nobody should be going to bed hungry.
Growing up there were times when the fridge was a bit empty and people would come round with food for our family. This isn't something you forget and I wanted to do something to help others avoid this.
School Dinners Playlist
Candle care and safety is the serious thing on this website. If you take care of your candle it will smell better, it will also last longer and will fill your house with good vibes.
If you take good care of it everything will be better and it will also be safe to burn. We’re all grown ups but let’s be clear, you are setting fire to something in your home and that requires a bit of common sense.
Make Candles Great Again
Trim the wick - if you don’t the flame will be massive, the candle will burn badly and will be unsafe. Why would you not do this? Go find those scissors. You wanna go to 5mm if you can (that’s quite small)Trimmed the wick? Bravo. This should prevent smoke and residue.Is your wick in the middle? Yeah weird huh, sometimes when you burn a candle the wick can shift over a bit. Keep an eye on this one.
Burn Time - first time? You want to make sure you have 2 hours to let the melt pool reach all the way round the candle. Super important on the first burn to prevent those holes you see in candles (we call this tunnelling).There are full safety instructions on the box and candle but some really obvious ones we want to call out.
Never leave candles unattended
Don’t leave them by an open window or a draft
Don’t burn a candle right next to another candle. The glass can get incredibly hot if you do this and this is when cracks happen.
Don’t burn candles right down to the bottom of the vessel.
Our large candles will last 40-50 hours and the travel candles 20-25 hours so don’t panic. That last bit left in the glass is ok to leave.
