Our Story

“I've always loved candles - the way they look, and how they burn and smell. But with a young and growing family, sadly my days of regularly buying expensive luxury brands were coming to an end.

I tried cheaper candles, but they looked awful, burned badly, and just never smelt quite right. Even with the bargain price tag I was always disappointed.

So I resolved to learn how to make candles myself, bought some wax, and years of experimentation began.

Of course not every attempt was successful but it felt magical - like alchemy - and I was hooked!

Soon, friends and family were begging me to make candles for their homes, and Candaroma was born. We have grown to supply small local shops and businesses and now sell online too.

Our range of "affordable luxury" is built on my 22 years experience working with herbs, essential oils and remedies. Trained in reflexology and aromatherapy I worked for over a decade with a well-known London natural remedies company based in Neal's Yard.

For each of our products I select the perfect combination of essential oils and fragrances from extensive testing. Moroccan rose oil is very different to Bulgarian rose oil, and cedar wood from the Himalayas does not smell the same as that produced in Virginia, USA.

On the quest for perfection the combinations are endless, and that’s what makes it so enjoyable.

Our blends are not only designed to smell great. We also douse the energy of the oils to find those that work best together, and create layers that inspire a sense of wellbeing.

Over time we’ve extended our product range to include room sprays and reed diffusers, and we add new scents each season to keep the range fresh and exciting.

Our new range of bath and body products - Beautiful Botanicals - are produced with the same philosophy.

We hear from our customers daily that our candles and fragrances really do make them feel calm or uplifted, balanced or focused. Try the Candaroma difference today and let us know what you think.

Whatever you choose, welcome to Candaroma. We believe wellbeing is not a luxury, it’s a necessity!”
