At Qasturi we know you care deeply about the earth that our future generations will inherit. That is why we are doing our very best to use materials that are manufactured with sustainability in mind. Our aim has always been to use the best, safest and most beautiful ingredients sourced from trusted suppliers who are known for their ethical practices in relation to workers rights, environment and animal protection. We feel that our products should not only smell or look good, they should also be produced in a way that respects the environment.
Here in our Noosa Hinterland studio, our candles are produced using clean renewable energy and pure rain water. They are handmade and individually hand poured using 100% natural soy wax, uncoated wooden wicks, lead-free cotton wicks and premium quality fragrance oils and essential oils. So our candles are non-toxic, have a low melting point, produce negligible amounts of soot, and release no known carcinogens into the air. Not only do our candles burn cleaner, making them safe for the environment, they also last 50% longer than any regular candles.
We are also passionate about recycling and re-purposing, therefore our candle jars are chosen for their beauty, form and functional use beyond their life as candle jars. When you have finished burning your candle, the jars can be hand washed with warm soapy water and re-used as storage canisters in the kitchen for tea, coffee and sugar, or displayed in the bathroom to store cotton balls, Q-tips, make-up brushes or jewellery.
