100% Natural Scented Candles from the Heartwood Candle Company
Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending the morning with Laura and Domique from Heartwood Candle Company, based in St Albans, Herts, learning how they make their hand-made natural candles with essential oils. Apparently, I’m whisker extraordinaire! I was truly impressed with the amount of love, care and detail that goes into each candle.
They weigh out the 100% natural soy wax, which is then gently melted, whilst melting the wax the glass jars, which are sourced locally, are heated to decrease the amount of temperature difference between the two or the wax may crack.
Each candle contains 10% essential oils, which you will not find in cheaper alternatives. The skill is in the aromatic blends, they spent months working out combinations that worked and as they said ‘they kissed a lot of frogs on the way’. However, this has resulted in a range of candles that smell wonderful.
Each of the different scents comes with its own poem which was written collaboratively by Laura and Dominique.
The candles are beautifully wrapped in environmentally friendly packaging, with a hand-written card. A perfect gift idea for Mother’s Day.
10% of all of their proceeds are donated to the Woodland Trust.
