These eye-catching decorative candles from We Sell Dream (£24.75) are hand-carved, meaning no two candles are exactly alike. The intricacy of the beautiful design is awe-inspiring – these candles really are too beautiful to burn! Just as well too, as these candles are made using paraffin wax. We don’t usually share candles made using mineral waxes, but these hand-carved works of art are too beautiful. Click here to find out why you should avoid burning paraffin wax candles.
