I love to light scented candles all year round, but at Christmas they feel essential don’t they? They fill the air with the fragrance of the festive season – orange, pine, spices… I was just browsing for ideas and I thought I’d share my findings with you. Hope you find something that brings a little festive joy into your home this Christmas too…
Yule Spice soy aromatherapy candle by Corinne Taylor
Find number one is made by Brighton-based trained aromatherapist Corrine Taylor. Essential oils of cinnamon, clove and orange impart a comforting and heartwarming festive fragrance. I love that all of Corinne’s candles are handmade, chemical-free and scented only with essential oils, which means that as well as natural fragrance, they also offer therapeutic benefits to enhance mood and wellbeing.
Corinne’s online shop is a great place to find really special gift ideas, including a totally beautiful collection of gift sets.
Well worth knowing, too, that Corinne includes one of her sustainably produced tote bags worth £9.95 with every order over £60.

Cinnamon and Clove Soy Wax Candle from The Future Kept
Hand-poured in Lancashire, this 100% pure and natural soy wax and pthalate-free candle creates a cosy mood. Cinnamon and clove are added to with hints of star anise, sweet baked vanilla pudding and chai spices. Can’t think of anything nicer to light on a cold winter’s evening.
Shinrin Yoku Candle from Foundland
Hand-poured in London, this soy candle evokes the feeling of finding quiet within the forest. Earthy cedarwood, oakmoss and black pepper offers a restorative, calm feeling for Winter, Christmas and beyond.
Find other really well-chosen gift ideas in the Foundland shop – I always love to browse their British Edit and I’m seriously hankering after one of their vintage Japanese kimonos right now.

Winter Bergamot candle from Lewes Map Store
I always find something lovely in the Lewes Map Store. This botanical Winter Bergamot candle combines bergamot blossom with a hint of clove to create comfort on slow winter mornings. Hand-poured in a British made hand-blown glass with a wood wick that will crackle and glow when lit, this candle is made with 100% natural ingredients. It’s also beautifully packaged inside a recycled cardboard gift box and shipped using eco-friendly packaging. Love.

This is such a great idea. The kit contains everything you need to make your own natural soy wax festive candle, including re-usable enamel pot, soy wax, wick, stirrer and exclusive Denys & Fielding Christmas blend of pure essential oils. Cinnamon, clove and clementine blend to create a warm, festive atmosphere.
Components are all sustainable and the packaging recyclable. If you’d like to send as a gift, you can add a personal note and gift wrapping. As I said – great idea!
