How it started

I (Dawn) was always searching for a candle that was natural, didn’t smoke, or smell 'chemically'. Is that a word? Anyway, I found it really hard to find. Another search we had on was the perfect business idea. John and I wanted to go in to business together but what to do? The obvious was staring us in the face but it took a while for the lightbulb moment to happen!! Sitting on the sofa one day one of us (I think me and John thinks him!!) said 'Candles!'


Later that day, John drove up to Sheffield and bought a candle making kit. I’d like to say that those first candles were wonderful, but they contained manufactured fragrances and tbh they smelled...well.. 'chemically' and just like the ones we had avoided in the past. Essential oils were the only way forward if we were to make perfect candles. 

Candles that care

We choose to use soy because it burns beautifully soft and clean, with none of the harmful toxins that you’d find in a standard paraffin candle. All our wax comes from suppliers who source sustainably and ethically.

 Our labels are made from wood pulp so you can just pop them in the compost. 

All our candles are vegan and free from paraffin, palm oil, parabens phthalates..


Once your candles are finished, your glass jars can be reused or, if you’re local to LE8 can be dropped back to us for refilling.
