WE'RE CLOSING! It has been great, but Lumos Apothecary will close its doors on 5th April 2024.

Recycle Scheme #CandleForLife

The New Year often brings a resolution or two and we’ve decided that this year, despite the fact it wouldn’t kill either of us to lose a couple of pounds or eat less cheese, we’d rather do something for our beautiful planet. That’s why we want to make 2021 the year we really start to push to do our bit to reducereuse and recycle.

We are already plastic free and only use biodegradable and recycled/recyclable vessels and packaging...but we want to go one step further, and encourage our wonderful customers to help.

Sure, we reuse all of our old candle jars and tins – they are great for testing out new scents, as desk tidies, plant pots, make up brush holders, button tins etc.

This is where you come in… if you return an empty Lumos Apothecary Grey Jar complete with all its original packaging, we'll refill the same vessel with a brand new candle of the same fragrance for 50% off the RRP! All you pay for is the return cost to post the vessels back to us. What’s not to love there?

Don't worry if you don't have the original box, you can still return your candle jar for a refill, but please be aware that if your jar arrives damaged then we will be unable to provide a refill (but we will refund your refill purchase).

We actually recommend that you save up a few jars and return them all together to make it financially beneficial too. Here is a worked example:

#CandleForLife Worked Example

You don't need to send back 4 candle jars, you can do just one... or more than 4!

How it works

Securely package up your used candle jars in their original packaging (labels and all), so they don't get broken in transit (if your jars arrive damaged then we won't be able to refill your candle for safety reasons).

Print off this recycling form and put it in with your candle jars.

Send your candles back to us. We recommend using a recorded delivery service such as Royal Mail, you don't have to opt for the expensive options as even 2nd Class postage will let you track if your parcel has been delivered.

Then head over to our #CandleForLife Refill product page and simply order your refills... use the code CANDLE4LIFE at checkout to apply the 50% discount.

Simple as that!

Note: We are only able to refill candles of the same scent. If that scent is currently unavailable, you will be given the option to choose an alternative. Discount only applies to candle refills and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers or discounts (which includes subscriber discounts).
