JOHN BARLEYCORN'S warm and comforting fragrance invokes memories of freshly baked buttery loaves.  It has top creamy notes of popcorn and dairy, sweet and floral middle notes or rose, and a malty base. The dried sunflower petals, symbolising the warm sun, add a touch of summery magic.

Our Mystical England range of wax melts are inspired by the tales and traditions of England. Some fact, some legend, all magical. JOHN BARLEYCORN is inspired by Lammas, also known as Lughnasadh or Loaf Mass. It is one of the 8 pagan sabbats and is the celebration of the first grain harvest. John Barleycorn is a traditional folk song that is heard during Lammas celebrations, he is the God of the Harvest and Spirit of the Fields. We also honour Lugh at this time; the God of Sun and Light. Sunflowers are one of the symbols of Lammas, reminding us that the wheat, corn and barley need the power of the sun to grow. Lammas is celebrated on 1st August; bread is baked, beer is shared with a toast to John Barleycorn, corn dollies are made and achievements are celebrated. We may not have a harvest to celebrate, but we may have something else in our life that we are proud of. John was also my father's name, and he loved a beer, so we're also honouring him with this melt.

Hand poured by HowCurious, these 100% natural snap bar wax melts are vegan friendly, cruelty free, paraben free and include biodegradable mica powder. They are made with EcoSoya wax which is an all natural soya wax. The bar contains 5 sections; with an approximate burn time of 6-8 hours per section. Simply snap a section off, and place in the well of your wax warmer. Light a tealight, pop it underneath the well and take in the magical scent.  Your melt will come with a fragrance and inspiration information card; perfect if you are gifting it and would like your recipient to know the inspiration behind it.

Wax Melt Use:

Snap off a section and place in the top of your oil burner or wax warmer. Place an unscented tea light in the section underneath, and relax! It very much depends on the warmer you're using but generally, each section lasts around  6-8 hours, and there are 5 sections. Our wax melts are CLP compliant, and full data sheets can be provided, just drop us an email. 

Be Candle Aware:

When burning candles, do not leave burning while unattended and do so in a well-ventilated area. Keep clear of flammable materials, never move while burning and burn on a level, stable surface away from draughts. Please also keep it away from your pets and small child.
