Our fascination with scent dates back to ancient civilisations; the burning of incense was believed to aid healing and was used in spiritual and religious ceremonies.
Originally used as a way to create light and measure time
we have used candles for thousands of years. Before the use of wax and paraffin in candles, they were made from fats that possessed potent odours so candle makers would often add incense to candles to mask undesirable aromas with more pleasant ones.
The invention of gas lighting and then electricity slowly diminished the practical need for candles, until the late 20th Century when a resurgence of interest saw candles come back for decorative and aromatherapeutic purposes.
Burning scented candles is a true treat for the senses
The combination of the flickering flame and beautiful aromas creates a relaxing, calming atmosphere. Certain fragrances can also help to alleviate stress and anxiety, while other scents may unlock memories associated with it, taking you back to another moment in time.
Soy wax scented candles are particularly popular as they tend to be vegan and cruelty free, non-toxic, and do not produce smoke or soot.
Immerse yourself in our luxurious scents time and time again through our scented candle range. Our candles are made from all-natural fragrances and soy wax, and have approximately a 48 hour burn time.
