About Purbeck Candles
I adore beautiful fragrances. Smells that conjure a mood or a happy memory. It’s a fascinating science, the power of smell. Certain smells make us happy, others relax, some lift the spirits and inspire. It is one of the most powerful senses and I have always found this to be intoxicating.
The subtle waft of perfume as you pass a stranger in the street. The rich fragrant hit of herbs & spicies wafting through an open window that make your taste buds tingle. A warm and inviting fragrance that greets you as you enter your home, embracing and enveloping you in its many layers.
I started Purbeck Candles in 2011, because I wanted to create and share this love of beautiful fragrances. Blending essential oils and melting soy wax on an old oil fuelled aga in a pretty rented cottage on top of a hill over looking Corfe Castle. Labelling jars at the kitchen table and then selling my wares at local craft fairs and Christmas markets.
I wanted the home fragrances to be natural, rounded scents which is why I chose to use only 100% essential oils in all of our products. This obviously adds to my produciton costs but I think it is worth it. Compare a man made artificial fragrance with an essential oil and you will understand. I think of it as the difference between wearing cotton and polyester.
It has always been important that my products were natural & eco friendly, using natural vegetable wax instead of petroleum, essentail oils and keeping clear of artificial fragrances & colourings. This is a range of products of which I am very proud.
Creating these blends lifts my spirits on a daily basis, I hope they will help to lift yours...
