Bosie Lavender and Eucalyptus Scottish Hug Soy Wax Soothing Tin Candle Scots Gift


Mulderie Wood, in the heart of the Highlands, is a short distance from where we hand make our candles. This beautiful wood has inspired not only our name but also the exquisite nature inspired scents we use. 

We use soy wax in all our candles. This is made from 100% pure soy oil derived from sustainably grown soybeans, and is free from pesticides, genetically modified materials and herbicides. Soy wax is a natural, renewable, sustainable and biodegradable resource. 

We do not use any colourants or dyes in our candles, so they have a smooth pure white finish. Our wicks are made from cotton and specifically designed for use in our candles. Our fragrance oils, essential oils and wax are not tested on animals and contain no animal product and is phlalatate free.

All our candles are hand blended and poured to exacting standards, ensuring a consistently high quality candle. And as they are made using soy wax, they are long lasting and give an even, strong scent whilst burning. 

We have one aim in mind: to make the most natural candles possible; better for you and better for the environment - everything is good in our wood. 

Traditionally, the oil and leaves of eucalyptus were used to treat respiratory conditions as well as skin trauma, such as burns and ulcers. Distillation of Eucalyptus Globulus leaves and twigs produces an aroma that has strong, camphoraceous opening notes with sweet, woody undertones which blend well with the herbal notes of lavender. The lavender (lavendula augustafolia) was introduced to Britain by the Romans and has been used in medicine since ancient times. Its uses are many, from soothing muscular aches and pains to offering a remedy for insomnia and depression.

In our local Scots dialect here in Northern Scotland: Doric - a Bosie means a bossom or hug. This candle is a bosie in a jar; a healing and soothing hug in a jar from our home to yours. Light this candle and let the fresh floral minty smell envelop you and pick you up.

The fully recyclable aluminium tin measures 65 x 50mm and contains approx. 120g of wax with an average burn time of 30 hours - small tin big results!

Sizing Details

Candles and melts come in various sizes. Please see individual scent listing for details of sizes in both mm/cm and in grams.

Wick Care

Soy wax is well documented to burn with minimal soot but all candles will emit a degree of soot if the wick is not regularly trimmed. Avoid soot and lengthen the life of your candle by keeping your wick trimmed to 5-8mm max. This is particularly important to avoid black soot marks on our glass container candles.

Care Instructions

Soy wax will follow where it was last burnt to - it has a memory; so for the first burn we recommend burning your candles until the wax has melted to the edge. Then when you light it again it will follow that path and no wax will be wasted. It is also recommended that you burn your candle for a max of 4 hours each time and keep the wick trimmed to 5mm to 8mm. Please remove all packaging, including the ribbon, prior to lighting and follow candle safety advice at all times.

Burn Time

Each size of candle has an estinated burn time. Our estimation of the burn time of your candle is based on tests we do here in house and also by our independent testers. This is based on burning your candle for a maximum of 4 hours not more than once every 24 hours. It is also based on following our candle care instructions including keeping the wick trimmed.

Candle Safety

Warning! To prevent fire and serious injury burn candle within sight. Keep away from drafts and vibrations. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Never burn candles on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep candle free of any foreign materials inc. matches and wick trimmings. Only burn the candle on a level fire resistant surface.
