Founded by Joela Sakayam, Arokiyam was named after her Great Grandmother who lived in a small fishing village in Sri Lanka, and was known as a wise elder, living in tune with nature. Made in a local London factory, each candle uses a vegan wax made from coconut and soy. Their unique range of scents are created with a UK supplier, using 100% natural fragrances. Their candles are free from parabens, SLS, phthalates and other harsh chemicals. The glass is fully recycled and the stickers used are made from 95% sugar cane fibres and 5% hemp and linen and are fully biodegradable.
