Our candles are made using a hybrid of vegetable waxes and beeswax. The soya is derived from sustainable designated agricultural farmland, and not South America. The Beeswax comes from hives where the Queen Bee has not had their wings clipped, something that is important to us at The Hertford Candle Company.


Each of our candles can be finished off with a metal lid and bow, and beautifully boxed in ridged cylindrical cardboard boxes.


The origin of the Catalytic Lamp goes back to 1898 when a French pharmacist created the Catalytic Combustion system to disinfect the air in hospitals. The original models were made of crystal or glass and operated with the same method of purification that is used today: diffusion by catalytic combustion.

The catalytic burner captures and destroys the molecules that carry odours. The mixing of air and the movement from convection ensures that odours are destroyed as well as airborne microorganisms. Catalytic lamps actually purify the air before perfuming it.

In the 1920's designers were commissioned to create aesthetic bottles to be offered to the private consumers. The lamps, which had previously cleansed and purified the air exclusively in the institutional setting, now came into the private home.

While air fresheners and room sprays usually mask odours, catalytic lamps actively purify, cleanse and perfume the air in a wide area. Common odours in the home produced by cooking, pets, tobacco and exercising can be safely and effectively removed by using our fragrance (catalytic) lamps.
