The Alchemist Candles and Crafts was started by Cadence, avid creator of many things. It began with just candles, and expanded to include jewellery and crafts too. Cadence finds the natural world endlessly inspiring and always tries to incorporate it in her work.

The Alchemist strives to be environmentally friendly in its packaging, ingredients, and production process. Half of all profits go towards Forest and Bird and Zealandia. Orders are shipped out in re-used courier bags and packaging. The candles are made of 100% soy wax and the fragrances don’t contain any phthalates and other common ‘nasties’. The jewellery is made with non-toxic resin or repurposed beads and jewels.
