Just light one up and relax. No, we're not talking about a cigarette (this isn't Mad Men you know). We're talking about some Juniper Incense Cones. If you're new to the whole incense world you might be thinking: 'Wait, I thought incense was always in a stick form?' Nope- you can light up this small cone and get the same effect - with way less chance of starting a fire.
And to add to this, it also smells so incredibly good. Haeckels has used coastal Juniper which grows low as a dense bush. It has green needle-like leaves and blueish berries which are the source of that lovely smell. As you all may know the berries are used as a flavoring in gin and the dutch liquor Jenever.
We'll stick the cones for now. Light em up!

Haeckels Incence Cones Juniper Ingredients: Juniperus communis (Juniper) Wood Oil
Light the end of the cone and burn for around 15 seconds blowing the ember until it's red hot. Place in the cone in the heart of your home - in either a hallway or a landing to allow the fragrant smoke to truly find it's way into all areas of the house. Use the lid or a heatproof surface to burn the cones on. The cone will burn for about 15 minutes and the scent will last between 2 to 4 hours.
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. Soon Haeckels will be launching 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.
