The natural core of the landscape, a location that is further inland than any other scent Haeckels has created and by far the most undisturbed. The citrus freshness of the crab apple that sits within an ancient forest. You can almost hear the sound of a nearby stream and small creatures. This scent will soothe and relax you as you picture the range of indigenous trees, plants and herbs that surround you with this scent.
With their Blean Woods candle, Haeckels transports you all the way into the Blean Woods. Where ferns and purple orchids grow along the path whilst further in the distance silver birch, hornbeam and crab apple trees thrive. In a clearing amongst this natural and undisturbed beauty lies the remnants of an abandoned campfire with large logs gathered around the central point of charred wood and ashes. You know, that scent. If you don't know; it's about time to light one up, unwind and take it all in.

The story of Haeckels is a truly amazing one. It was founded in 2012 by volunteer beach warden and coastal enthusiast Dom Bridges. Disillusioned by the production ethos of many larger skin care companies Dom wanted to create simple handcrafted products that showcased the surrounding coasts natural ingredients. During the early years of Haeckels, Dom would collect seaweed and local botanicals along the Margate coast in England and bring them back to his family kitchen to experiment. Let's take a moment to say thank you to his wife, who motivated him to take things to the next level and create the brand as we know it today. Not forgetting it's past, Haeckels still plays an active roll in the local community by organising beach cleans and taking part in marine conservation surveys. Their coastal license makes it possible for them to harvest their ocean vegetables direct from a Cretaceous chalk reef allowing them to design unique natural products of exceptional quality. Like we said, a truly amazing story.
Haeckels mostly uses amber glass and a minimum amount of plastic. Their candle glass can be re-used as tea glass,
One of their main focuses in 2019 is to make all of their packaging either compostable or recyclable. Their bio-designer, Jessica Gregory, is researching and creating new sustainable and compostable materials for Haeckels to house their products in. Haeckels recently launched a brand new material that their skincare and haircare sets and candles will be packaged in: Mycelium, which is grown from mushrooms and entirely compostable. In terms of our products that are currently house either in plastic, or with plastic elements, they will be moving them over to packaging made of woodchip and the plastic elements such as pumps will be fully recyclable. The seaweed bath will soon be housed in packaging that is fully recyclable.
An A for effort. Really.
