Who Are We?

Hi, my names Emily and 'we' is actually just me, a one person show.

Miss Wax is a small cruelty-free candle making business, all made with love of course.

Our candles are hand-poured in Tauranga, New Zealand using 100% natural, vegan soy wax. We chose soy wax for the many benefits it brings including the fact that it has no chemicals, is GMO free and 100% sustainable and renewable. It also gives off a cleaner burn and better scent throw than other types of wax. One way of telling our wax is 100% natural soy is that it changes with the temperature, therefore you may notice wet or white spots on your candle, it's nothing to stress about, it won't affect the scent throw or performance at all.

All candles come with a care card with information on how to get the most out of your candle and all wax melts include safety instructions inside the lid. Our products are made in small batches to ensure the best quality and consistency.

Everything we use is 100% recycled and/or recyclable, our jars can be re-used to hold anything from pens, cotton balls or make up brushes! All our packaging is 100% recycled already and can be recycled again using a normal NZ Yellow Bin. We mostly use dissolvable corn starch peanuts in our packaging but if you find things like plastic bubble wrap in your order, please note that it is being reused from supplier packaging!

We choose to only work with sustainable and economical companies, everything we use from preparing, to sending is locally sourced where possible to ensure we are helping out fellow Kiwi businesses along the way.
