The Story Behind our Natural Christmas Candle
“It wasn’t long after I started making natural candles while living in New Zealand that I decided I wanted to make a natural Christmas candle. It was in the run up to Christmas and I was determined to make a candle that reminded me of Christmases back home in Scotland where it is traditionally cold.
During the festive period in the Northern Hemisphere scents dominate the time of year when it is cold and dark and the need to be uplifted, warmed, and revived is needed.
I looked at the scents I personally loved at Christmas, the ones I remembered as a child, the ones that screamed happiness, warmth, and fun.
From my learning of scent blending, I needed to combine the different groups of scents to form one amazing smell that just said Christmas. I knew I needed a wood scent, a citrus scent, and a spice or two. After much trial and error with blending different scent combinations, the winner was clear: Cedarwood, Orange, Cinnamon, and Clove.
I have been making the same natural Christmas candle since 2014. It has a following with people who have bought it year in and year out since 2014. If you buy it one Christmas season you’ll need it the next year to evoke the festive and enlivened feeling it gave you the previous season.
Described by The Times as “one of the best natural candles in the UK” and loved by so many year on year, my natural Christmas candle will fill your space with festive fun and a warming vibe” Laura,15th October 2020.
