This Mother’s Day, Rathbornes is celebrating not only the amazing mother figures in our lives but also the incredible power of Mother Nature. Rathbornes chooses to hand-craft our candles using sustainable, natural waxes that are kinder to the environment. By embracing these earth-friendly materials, we honour Mother Nature and encourage others to join us in protecting our planet for generations to come. Whether you're looking for a gift for your own mom, a friend or a special woman in your life, our 100% natural candles are a beautiful way to show your appreciation for them and Mother Nature.
Making sustainable choices has never been more important. Rathbornes understands the importance of using high-quality, sustainable materials in our products. Rathbornes has been using beeswax since 1488 and is proud to still hand-craft its candles with beeswax. Today, Rathbornes uses a unique blend of beeswax, rapeseed, and coconut wax. This blend is not only environmentally friendly, but it also provides a superior burning experience, with a clean and long-lasting burn, instantly filling the room with a beautiful scent with a lingering aroma even after burning the candle.
Why Should I Buy Beeswax Candles?
Beeswax Orange Lavender Scented Candle
Beeswax is one of the most sustainable and natural waxes available. It is a by-product of honey production and is a renewable resource. Beeswax is also non-toxic and hypoallergenic. Additionally, beeswax candles release negative ions when burned, which help to clean the air of pollutants and allergens, making them a great choice for those with respiratory issues. Beeswax is also known for its beautifully, bright flame which creates a soothing ambiance.
Take time to relax with Rathbornes' Sweet Orange & Bloom Scented Candle, an energising citrus with hints of lavender combined with 100% natural beeswax, rapeseed and coconut waxes. Each candle from our Botanical Bee Collection is wrapped in the barest of 100% recyclable packaging while still having that luxury feel and design.
Why is Coconut Wax Sustainable?
Nature-Inspired Scented Candle & Diffuser Dublin
Coconut wax is another sustainable option, made from the oil of the coconut palm. This type of wax is renewable, biodegradable, and has a low carbon footprint. It is also a great choice for candles, as it burns cleanly, producing minimal soot. Coconut wax has a creamy texture, which makes it ideal for creating high-quality candles that look and feel luxurious.

Why Burn Candles with Rapeseed Wax?
Beautiful Rapeseed Field in Ireland Growing Rapeseed Wax For Candles
Rapeseed wax is another sustainable option, derived from the seeds of the rapeseed plant. This type of wax is not only renewable, but it is also biodegradable and has a low carbon footprint as it can be grown in Ireland. It is also highly versatile, making it a great choice for candles, as it can be blended with other waxes to improve performance and stability. Rapeseed wax burns at a low temperature so the fragrance evaporates gently rather than quickly at a high temperature.

Our unique blend of beeswax, rapeseed, and coconut wax provides a superior burning experience ensuring that the fragrance lingers for longer with an extended burn time. Our blend of natural waxes is non-hazardous to animals and does not emit harmful toxins such as paraffin. It also supports sustainable living.
