Social Responsibility

Lost In Scent aims to produce beautiful candles free from any animal cruelty or damage to the environment. Our mission is also to give back in the process of creating beautiful lifestyle items for your home. Find out more about our work here...



Giving back is important to us at Lost in Scent and we are excited about our partnership with the child hope ChildHope, whose goal is to ensure every child has the right to a safe and secure childhood for those born into extreme poverty and violence.

ChildHope's work in Nepal is especially important to us, and why we wished to collaborate with them on our Himalaya candle. 

For many, Nepal conjures up images of exhilarating treks through breathtaking landscapes, with Mount Everest at its heart. Beyond the tourist centres, Nepal faces many challenges. Access to services, already limited by poor infrastructure, was further seriously damaged by huge earthquakes in 2015.

Extreme poverty means fragmented families and displaced children struggle to reunite and rates of trafficking and exploitation are high, and it is these children that ChildHope’s work focuses on in Nepal.

We proudly donate £1 for every Himalaya candle sold to ChildHope's work in Nepal.


Lost In Scent is proud to produce candles free of any animal cruelty. Many candles on the market are made using parrafin wax. These candles generally use stearic acid (an animal fat) to harden their wax. Lost In Scent only uses 100% soy wax to create candles free of animal product. Soy wax is also completely free of harmful chemicals.

Other benefits of using soy wax include a longer burn time and a greater scent-throw. So, not only can you enjoy a cruelty-free burn, the journey can last longer and shine brighter. 

All candles are made using paraben free and vegan friendly fragrance oils. 

Plastic free

Lost in Scent is proud to be plastic free. Our product packaging are made from 100% recyclable materials and free of any single-use plastic. From glass jars to aluminium lids, every part of enjoying our products including how we package our boxes, is free of plastic. 

If you want to know more about why going plastic free is important, you can read more here. According to Sir David Attenborough, the time is now for us all to do something, even if it's just an effort to ditch our plastic shopping bags at the supermarket.

Ethically sourced

We are fully committed to ethically sourcing all materials involved in the making of our products. We look to minimise carbon footprint by sourcing all materials from suppliers here in the UK. We are in partnership with the Merville Trust in India where we source our incense sticks. They provide assurances of products created free from child labour.
