About Us

Hello and thank you for stopping by.  I’m Mags, the owner of Red Moss Candles, a small artisan business based just outside Edinburgh at the foot of the beautiful Pentland Hills.  

A love of candles and a desire to reduce unnecessary packaging and waste inspired me to create a range of gorgeous, long lasting and affordable natural wax candles and botanical wax melts.  I believe that candles should be a little everyday luxury that perform well and don't cost a fortune.  

I make all Red Moss candles and wax melts by hand in small batches in my home.   Each product is skilfully hand poured and cured to give a wonderful scent throw. 

Testing is an essential element of the process.  I strive to ensure that every candle will burn beautifully for you.  I test candles in accordance with the Candle Safety and Care Guide and recommend customers refer to this guide when purchasing products to achieve the best results.

I use pure and natural coconut and rapeseed wax which is completely free from paraffin, soy, palm oil and beeswax and is 100% sustainable.  Unlike many others (including soy), the wax I use contains no synthetic additives.  

The natural quality of the wax and my making process means that each product is unique and a perfect blend of craft and chemistry.

I use lead-free, natural wicks and high quality fragrance oils in a range of fruity, fresh, woody/oriental and floral scents so there is something to suit every nose.  I also add limited edition fragrances from time to time to complement the season.

All ingredients in Red Moss products are vegan and are not tested on animals.

Our 200gm candles will fill a standard sized room with a beautiful aroma.  

All packaging is designed to be minimal and functional to keep product costs as low as possible.  

I aim to provide efficient and friendly customer care and am always delighted to hear from customers with any comments and feedback.
