WELCOME

abalon is a sustainable business established in London in 2015.

We combine the beauty of traditional craftmanship and the necessity to create an environmentally eco-friendly & nontoxic burn candle.

Our Ethos:

-Reducing waste impact

-Maximising recycling

-Encouraging our customer to recycle

-Locally made

-Refillable

-100% Sustainable & reusable green design

Founded by London based artist Ana Alonso, sustainable brand @Abalonuk introduces its beautiful collection of hand-casted porcelain candles. To create these unique candles, each porcelain pot is filled with pure eco-soya wax deriving from renewable, organic soya-bean oil. The eco-friendly wax is then infused with 100% natural, ethically and locally sourced essential oils, distilled when possible by a family runned distillery based in Norfolk, and through it runs a cotton eco-wick that is non-toxic to burn.

Available as naked soya or in six evocative scents (lemongrass, lavender, a cedarwood, rosemary, lavandin blend, cinnamon & bergamot, aniseed and petitgrain), the candles burn clean so that once the wax has burned down, it can easily be replaced with a refill. The burn of these candles typically last 30-50% longer than paraffin wax, and the formulation means they can also be used as massage candles, with wax that has been dermatologically tested on humans, not animals.

With porcelain sourced in the UK from Stoke-on-Trent, each piece endures a long process of sanding and firings, making them as precious and durable as venetian glass. With each piece featuring Abalon’s trademarked gold lip, the dishwasher safe pots can also be reused as a tea cup. Additionally, the natural translucence of the porcelain makes it the perfect container for plants such as orchids that need light on their roots.

Available in a variety of blues, greens and greys, some set with precious gems such as emeralds, topazs and agathas.
