This is a product listing for information purposes only. However, should you wish to open a box you will need to add this product (you will not be charged) in order to officially open your box. Please use discount code 'freeship' to open your first box and continue to use this code every time you order something which you want to add to your box. Please note that you cannot combine discount codes this is something set by my website host which I unfortunately cannot change. So if you are opening a box, you will be unable to use both the freeship code and another discount code such as your loyalty voucher or any rep or promotional codes. 

The idea of the open box is as follows. To save on shipping costs you can open a box and keep filling it until you are ready to have it shipped. Boxes can only remain open during one calendar month. So regardless of whether you open the box on the 1st of the month, or the 18th of the month it must be closed and your postage fees settled by the last day of that calendar month. 

I will keep you updated as much as possible about your current postage costs when it goes up a tier, however, I have prepared this small template to give you an idea of shipping costs. 

Firstly please be aware of box size. If your box stretches out to two parcels you will need to pay for 2 lots of shipping. My largest shipping box will hold 5x 7oz candles. 2oz candles take up the same amount of space as one 7oz candle to give you an idea so one box could hold any of the following variations: 

  • 5x 7oz candles 
  • 10x 2oz candles 
  • 3x 7oz candles and 4x 2oz candles 

and so on. 

In terms of weight. Both international and domestic shipping will only allow a box to weigh a maximum of 2kg. 

7oz candles weigh roughly 410g and 2oz candles weight approx 20g bear in mind the additional weight of the box itself and the packing materials which all add to the weight. for example 5x 7oz candles at 410g each weigh a total of 1.65kg but once wrapped and boxed they usually weight more like 1.85kg. 

For domestic customers therefore, shipping information is fairly simple. For second class shipping you can have up to 2kg of weight for £2.95 once you have filled one box I will contact you to see if you want to close the box or begin a second box. You will then be charged for the shipping. 

For international customers, these are the rough prices for weight based shipping so that you are able to calculate your postage estimate as you order. Please note these are estimates and it may be more or less. They are also the costs for economy shipping only, please contact me directly for pricings for standard, signed or tracked shipping. I will do my best to keep you informed as your costings go up:
