Created in Summer 2016, when, after noticing the damage mass-produced candles were doing to his home, north west based entrepreneur Drew decided that home fragrance could and should be better.

“For years I had bought candles in the supermarket or other discounted outlets and finally began to realise after my brilliant white kitchen turned grey, that the candles were giving off smoke and soot which was collecting on the walls and ceilings of my home” Drew explained. “I did some research and discovered that it was because mass-produced candles are made from petroleum-based paraffin wax. Not only that, they are often heavily dyed and fragranced with synthetic scents containing parabens and toxins”.

“I started making my own candles from only natural products. I sourced vegan, soy wax and began blending it with essential oils to create my own fragranced candles. I didn’t use any colouring or dyes because soy wax is naturally a beautiful creamy colour. I wanted to make my candles stand out from the crowd, so used a natural wooden wick. They crackle when they burn, which my customers love!”
