Bear & Roo

Bear & Roo create Hand Poured Soy Candles made in Pocklington. The name comes from the sisters' nicknames Jessie "Bear" and Rosie "Roo".

All of their candles are made with 100% soy wax which is a sustainable, natural and petroleum free alternative to paraffin wax. This means that their candles are kinder to the environment, and are also safer and cleaner burning in your home. They will not release any dangerous toxins into the air or leave sooty residue on your walls. 

Bear & Roo use cotton wicks which are soy coated before being added to their candles, and their wicks are all perfectly sized to allow for maximum scent throw and burn time, combined with a good potpourri fragrance while the candle is not lit.

All Bear & Roo fragrances are created from blends of fragrance oils with new exciting fragrances being created from curiosity and from customer suggestions. 

The burn time on their candles is upto 40 hours. We recommend allowing the melted wax to reach the edges of the container the first time you burn a candle. This will mean that during subsequent burns the melt pool will reach the outer edge of wax, ensuring that all of the wax is used during burning. This is how to avoid ‘tunnelling’ – the process where candles burn down the middle and leave lots of unused wax (common in paraffin candles due to their higher melting point) 

All Bear & Roo candles are suitable for vegans
