We at Rathbornes are trying to do our bit by moving towards more sustainable ecofriendly raw materials.  We are passionate to create a better world. We are huge supporters of the All Ireland Pollinator Plan and the National Biodiversity Plan - where local farmers, authorities, schools, gardeners and businesses just like ourselves, come together to try to create an Ireland where our bees can survive and thrive.  


We combine beeswax, rapeseed and coconut to produce a truly sustainable

100% natural wax while ensuring a clean, slow, perfect burn. Each of our waxes are eco-friendly and sourced from entirely natural processes with no issues with intensive farming or GMO’s.

Rapeseed is grown throughout the UK and Ireland therefore reducing the carbon footprint.  We also use 100% natural cotton wicks.


All of our packaging is made using FSC Mix Paper/Card which means that the paper is made from a mix of FSC paper (paper from sustainable forests) recycled paper and/or controlled wood (material from acceptable sources that can be mixed with FSC certified material in products carrying the FSC Mix label).


Our glass is sprayed with water based paint suitable for recycling.


The packaging chips we use to keep your beautiful products safe in transit are made from corn starch and are 100% compostable.
