New British refillable candle company offers a sustainable home staging solution

  • With Britain burning 360 million candles a year, what happens to all the containers once they are used?
  • Pott aims to fix this issue, so that everyone only needs one candle Pott for the rest of their life, which they can keep refilling with custom-made candle refills.
  • Available in nine different scents and four designs, high quality and sustainably made, Pott is now offering UK businesses the chance to use their products in their establishments

A new range of vegan and sustainably made refillable candles are now available to British home staging experts looking to create the perfect ambiance without harming the environment.

Pott Candles are refillable, so when your candle has burnt out, you simply replace it with one of its custom-made candle refills.

Instead of producing endless glass beakers, Pott Candles come with a lifetime Pott, hand thrown by artisan producers in the UK. Every Pott is designed to be refilled with the candle company’s custom-made candle refills. These are available in four different designs, including white, blush, heather, and speckle. The pots the candles come in come in two different sizes, Standard and Petite.

The refills come in nine different scents, including: Lavendula, Terra, Rosa, Eden, Fig, Orangery, Basil and Tonka.

Pott also release seasonal scents each year, previous ones have included a floral Jardin for spring and Spiced Pomegranate for autumn. Unscented refills are also available.

It is very simple to refill a Pott candle. After the candle has had its 60 hours burn time and there is half an inch of wax remaining in the Pott, let the wax set. Then, place your Pott candle in a heatproof bowl of hot water and the wax will begin to melt at the edges. Gently press down on the wax and it will lift out like a disc. Once all excess wax has been removed, wash the Pott and it is ready for its refill.

The hand poured candles use sustainable rapeseed & coconut wax, natural essential oils and sustainable fragrance oils. They are also vegan friendly.

All Pott’s products are made in small batches in the UK. Every Pott is hand-thrown by artisan potters and because of this, no two Potts are he same – they all have their own unique personality.

Pott also offers a subscription model which includes one new refill on each delivery.

Pott also stocks a range of accessories, including adorable MatchPotts containing roughly 50 matches for £16.50 (variable due to handmade size variety). Refills for the matches are also available. Candle care accessories are also available, including wick trimmers, wick dippers and candle snuffers.

Ailis Topley, founder of Pott Candles, said: “We have created a product that fixes the issue of thrown away or clutter from used candle jars. Pott means you only need one candle for the rest of your life. Pott’s foundations are in two very simple ideas – love your planet and support local artisan makers. We are delighted to offer a sustainable yet simple solution to enjoying quality candles with as little impact to the environment as possible. All our candles are lovingly crafted, hand-poured and designed to be enjoyed over and over again.”
