NATURAL INGREDIENTS CANDLES AND SKINCARE MADE IN ABERDEEN…

I came across this wonderful site called ‘Our Lovely Goods‘, A family run business which came about when they started making body butter for their baby daughter in 2018 before branching out into soy-based candles to make their home feel snug. They enjoyed it so much that they launches Our Lovely Goods’, the following year.

They are passionate about creating products that are good for you, your home and the environment – whilst being beautifully designed too.

They handcraft natural wax candles, botanical skincare and work with talented artisans in Nigeria to curate our collection of homewares. They are also passionate about promoting well being and exploring creativity through workshops and events.

Some of their beautiful candles include One Evening – Cedarwood, Jasmine & Thyme – £20

They have a few body butter’s – Calm, Botanical Body Butter & Nurture Body Butter £18 all of which will look lovely in your bathroom with the candles.

They also have a Sweet Treat Gift Box which has a choice of Madagascar 70% Dark Chocolate or Dominican 68% Dark Chocolate then you just choose your candle to go with it. It makes a great gift for any birthday or Christmas at £26 – some of their homeware is out of stock due to Covid but there is still plenty to choose from ready for the winter nights.

GOING GREENER THE HYGGE WAY…

We are all trying to do our bit to go greener and candles are very much a part of a HYGGE Lifestyle.

They instantly add atmosphere but to keep greener make sure they are 100 per cent beeswax instead of paraffin, which can contribute to air pollution when burned.

Also don’t forget packaging as tea lights come in aluminium cups, which are recyclable but are less eco- friendly than casing-free tapers.

One great site for your greener tea lights and all candles made with beeswax is Five Bees Yard

Their beeswax candles are virtually chemical free. They are safe in contact with food if you want to use them as birthday cake candles. But they will serve your religious purpose as well.

Clean your mind and relax with our 20 minutes + relaxation candles. No fumes, no toxic chemicals. Pure nature enclosed in raw beeswax.

Zero waste – no cup tea lights. Re-use your old cups. Still the same 100% top quality raw beeswax. Unprocessed, untreated, unaltered. Pure nature that is sustainable.
