    In the DU&MU webshop, we have an extensive collection of candles from the brand ester & erik.

    Durable, hand-coloured candles

    An ester & erik candle is of the highest quality, and is a durable 100% natural product.

    The quality of a candle is determined by the quality of the raw materials, and for more than 35 years ester & erik has – uncompromisingly – used the same good raw materials to create natural candles without any artificial additives. All our candles are made using paraffin wax with the highest possible melting point, which means that our candles burn more slowly; in fact, 30% longer than other candles.

    The purest wax available

    The candles are made of 100% paraffin wax, a pure mineral product derived from crude oil. Contrary to what many believe, crude oil has nothing to do with petrol. Crude oil only becomes petrol once it is refined, but before that stage the paraffin wax is isolated and used for producing candles, for example.
The quality of the candles depends on the purity of the paraffin wax which is used. The candles are made from the most highly refined paraffin wax – in other words, you will not find a cleaner product from a more natural raw material.
In terms of durability, paraffin wax has the smallest carbon footprint and the least environmental impact of all waxes.

    100% cotton wicks

    All the wicks are made from 100% pure cotton, which is completely lead-free.

    Dyes and lacquers

    The lacquers and gold and silver coatings are water-based.
    The dyes are colour-fast, which means they are very clear and durable and do not fade when exposed to sunlight.


    To achieve the best-looking result when colouring the candles, the tradition is kept up of hand-dipping the candles in coloured wax.
    Colouring by hand, you have a particular feel for the product throughout the entire process: When the raw candles arrive in the colour section, the candles are checked to make sure they are free of dirt and have a completely smooth surface before dipping. Some colours bind more easily to the wax, which means that some candles need to be pulled up out of the colour bath faster than others. Only by using your hands can you produce the same high quality every time.
