Vij5 / Webshop / Accessories / Rapeseed wax maxi tea lights

Rapeseed wax maxi tea lights

These maxi tea lights are nice and big for a long burn time. They are made with rapeseed wax, a sustainable alternative to kerosene.

They are suitable for some of our Refillable Candles. You can refill these yourself with rapeseed wax pellets, but the tea lights are ready-made and therefore easier.

A "refillable candle" is a mold/container that can be easily (re)filled with liquid candle wax to form a candle.

In 2021 Vij5 existed 15 years, therefore prior to DDW we invited all the designers we work with under the Vij5 collection to create a "refillable candle" Design. An overview of their unique Design was on display in the Vij5 showroom during DDW 2021. The designers were given carte blanche, allowing their different handwriting to stand out in the final product. As a result, the exhibition showed a wide range of personal interpretations and at the same time formed an interesting unity, just like the Vij5 collection.

Rapeseed wax

For this project, we are working with rapeseed wax: a local, safe and easy-to-process product as a sustainable alternative to paraffin candles. Another advantage of rapeseed wax is that it has a relatively low melting point, which makes the container easy to clean with hot water and soap or in the dishwasher (if the material of the container allows it).
