About us

Andy is a retired English teacher and writer, originally from Lancashire. Alison is an administrator born in Wharfedale, having spent a number of years living overseas.

We are based in beautiful Burley-in-Wharfedale in the heart of Yorkshire and never imagined in 2020 we would be selling candles and gift packs across the country and getting our story in the local papers.  It’s funny how things turn out!(Picture from Ilkley Gazette & Wharfedale Observer Article published 2020)

We have launched many new products and ranges since 2021, from the Ilkley Collection, Rainbow/Pride as well as an array of amazing new fragrances to choose from every month. 

As a Cottage Industry, we want to support and celebrate our local community and source the best quality local materials wherever possible.  We endeavour to use natural products, which are healthy for the environment as well as the consumer, vegan and cruelty free. 

We hope you enjoy our candles as much as we enjoy making them. Keep an eye out for new products and announcements coming shorty.
