Collection: Candles

There are few things more inviting than watching a flickering flame, it has the power to draw us in and capture our attention.  A candle can be used to provide heat, to illuminate, create ambiance and even tell the time!

There is a science around candles and the way they burn.  When a candle's wick is lit and the wax melts, a small amount of it's fuel then combines with oxygen to ignite and a flame is formed. The candle then melts and moves upward through the wick like a straw, the wax then evaporates within the candle's flame and it becomes self-sustaining.

The first candles were made by Romans back in 500BC and have been used throughout the ages for spiritual reasons.  Candles can represent unity in weddings and are often used in remembrance or birth rituals.

We have long been drawn to fire and although candles are not a necessity in this modern world, there is still a lot of interest in seeing their dancing flames and using them to set a mood.  We now use candles for their aesthetic value and often scent, particularly when used to invite a soft, warm, or romantic atmosphere.

Scent is one of the strongest senses linked to nostalgia and the associations we all have with certain smells, places and people. When the heat of a burning candle releases the fragrance and permeates a room, it can bring back memories, feelings and the longing for a past time and place.

A last and very important point - everyone looks better with candlelight!  So check out the 3 very different candles in our range and the candle accessory kit to add to your candle obsession!
