A modern twist on this original classic.

Legend has it, Bay Rum was one of the earliest popular fragrances for men, first created in the 1800's, in St Thomas, West Indies, using their native bay trees, aromatic spices and of course, lashings of rum. But that just makes me think of pirates, and I'm sure they never smelled as scrummy as this...


Think warm, peppery spices, a touch of sweet vanillin, fresh limes and the bold, herbal tannins of green leaves. And if you close your eyes, you can just about imagine the rum too. No longer imported from the new world to the old in tea clippers, I make my own booze-free blend right here so you can easily enjoy its warm aromatics in your very own pirate den - or anywhere you fancy dropping anchor and getting cosy.

Bay Rum Organic Home Candle

  • Each and every candle is lovingly crafted in very small batches, entirely by hand, from start to finish.

    The special wax blend, created by Stella, contains no fossil fuel derivatives like paraffin, no parabens or phthalates and, unlike common soy wax, these simple, natural ingredients have not been genetically modified, mega-farmed, caused de-forestation or treated with petrochemicals like hexane and hydrogenated just to become wax.

    Stella’s closely guarded blend is created with only pure, natural beeswax blended in precise proportions to raw, organic, wet-milled, hand-pressed & fairly-traded, extra virgin coconut oil (say that ten times fast!)  You will find no soy or palm ingredients in any of our products. That's a promise.

    With the exception of Bay Rum & Sea Salt, which also contain paraben-free and phthalate-free fragrance oils, Stella has created all of the other beautiful scents by blending only pure botanical essential oils, creating a truly unique and 100% natural organic candle, right down to the wooden wick, which crackles gently as it burns, for that extra special ambiance, kinda like your own miniature log fire, but without the soot and smoke.  

    220g in frosted recyclable glass.
