Sustainability

MIXMY is committed to supporting the planet as best we can, whether that be in how we produce our products or how we run the business.

MIXMY was founded on a no-waste belief – our aim is to make candles work so much harder; empowering you to adapt and personalise your home fragrance experience, so you never again tire of your home scents, eliminating the need for the candle graveyard – that cupboard where forgotten, half burnt candles end up once you get bored of them – so, ultimately reducing waste.

We encourage the MIXMY team and our wonderful family of customers to refill, reuse and recycle everything they can.

Our products are hand crafted in the UK, and don’t travel far to reach MIXMY headquarters, a farm in the heart of Yorkshire, where Vicky, her family and the small MIXMY team personally pack every single order.

We’re by no means perfect, but as a business, we are continually looking to improve the ways in which we support our planet.

Renewable Sources

MIXMY Primary Candles and Primary Candle Refills are hand-crafted in the UK and are consciously made with 100% natural vegetable wax, sourced from sustainable origins.

REFILL . REUSE . RECYCLE

Refilling is considered the most sustainable option when faced with what to do with used packaging. It limits energy use and raw materials used to make from new every time. So whilst MIXMY’s bespoke glass is completely recyclable, we offer a range of Primary Candle Refills so our beautiful bespoke glass can be reused time and time again.

OUR PACKAGING

Although we recommend you refill or reuse your MIXMY glass container, MIXMY candle glass is 100% recyclable once cleaned.

We believe in responsible forestry, so in addition to our retail cartons being fully recyclable, they have been made from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) approved stock.

Our online mailer boxes, crinkle fill and paper tape are all fully recyclable.

 Our Primary Candle Refills come in packaging we’ve actually grown! We’ve used mycelium – the root-like structure of mushrooms – to grow the packaging that protects our Primary Candle Refills. Mycelium is completely home-compostable and will disappear without a trace within 45 days when exposed to regular moisture.

Are you as over this cold, wet Spring weather as much as we are?!
Try combining 1. SOFT / FLORAL with 3. CITRUS / OCEANIC and let the delicate floral notes combine with the sun-soaked citrus and refreshing fir needle and sea salt accords to create the Scent Destination™ of #SunBathedMediterraneanTerrace. 
We can’t guarantee to transport you in person, but close your eyes, take in the aroma and you’re there… on a sun-baked terrace beneath a cloudless azure sky as soft, floral notes linger on the gentle sea breeze.

Combine to create | Your journey of scent discovery begins here
Starting the day with 3. CITRUS / OCEANIC for a morning boost.
 
It’s also the perfect kitchen candle fragrance as the bright, refreshing scent replaces kitchen smells. 
 
Change the mood by playing around with different pairs of MIXMY candles. 
This evening, I’m adding 5. WOOD / SMOULDER to number 3 to create the beautifully mellow Scent Destination™ of #DuskOnTheAmalfiCoast.

I’m generally quite a private person, but as MIXMY grows, I feel I should step out from behind the brand (and out of my comfort zone 😬).
So I’m going to start by sharing a little about myself.

I’m Vicky, Founder of MIXMY.

I’ve spent my career specialising in product development and marketing for incredible beauty and home fragrance brands, including Elemis, Shiseido and NEOM Organics.

I went to Newcastle University to study Agri-Business Management & Marketing, and despite being a dairy farmer’s daughter, I chose to make a career out of anti-ageing cream rather than double cream!

My first product development role was for a global beauty brand based in Sydney, where I lived for a number of years. It was there I met my husband. We moved to London, and eventually North Yorkshire where we now live with our two children and three Jack Russells.

I can’t sit still. My idea of relaxation is doing, so on holiday it’s very rarely you’ll see me sat by a pool. I’ll take a ski holiday over a sun holiday any day.

My mum can make anything. When I was growing up, she liked to make clothes for my two sisters and I.

She liked to try out different techniques, so when I wasn’t sporting one of her batwing jumpers, I was often dressed in Victorian-style smocked dresses and Elizabethan ruffs 😱. The memory still haunts me 😂.

I’ve recently discovered Bahlsen Choco Leibniz Chunky Mint Chocolate Biscuits (a name that doesn’t roll off the tongue that easily!) - trust me, they are AMAZING!

To the amusement of those close to me, ‘I Am The One and Only’ by Chesney Hawkes will always get me on the dance floor.
