My plan with this blog is to mix it up each week with things to buy in the shop both new and vintage, projects with clients and our own renovation project. Two years in and we still have so much to do! Mainly because my husband is doing most of the work himself! With his eyelashes it would seem!
Whilst I featured the lovely new organic skincare by Nathalie Bond only last week, with Valentines Day on Thursday, I thought I'd waste no time in sharing The Botanical Candle Co. Who wouldn't want to receive a beautiful scented candle on Valentines?
It's my mission where possible to work with ethical brands in the UK. The Botanical Candle Co. started in 2014 by Amalia Pothecary (the best name!) and James Osborn. A home-grown business based in a studio and shop in Shaftesbury, Dorset.
Working only with 100% soy wax flakes, every single candle is made by hand from beginning to end and the fragrances are as close to nature as possible. Minimising the environmetal impact is also at the forefront of their business decisions along with plastic-free packaging.
They have four scent categories. Floral, Woody, Citrus and Fresh. I love Citrus candles, but their Laundry Day candle is one of my faves, or is it Cutting Garden? I've yet to try one of their new scents for 2019, but Orange Blossom, Lemon Verbena and Summer Greenhouse with notes of Sage, Basil & sun-ripened Tomato are top of my list!
We are looking to expand our current offering across their range, to include Utility Tins, Amber Jars and Weck Jars. As they burn so beautifully and cleanly, they can all be reused. I use the Utility Tins for planting herbs and succulents in!
We've always got one burning in the shop, so pop in and have a sniff!
