NaturaScents | Independent Business Spotlight

NaturaScents was founded early this summer by Philippa Kay as an outlet for her creative energy after 3 years of focusing on university work. She began cooking up candles at home for herself but set up the business after encouragement from family and friends. Since then she's been in high demand at craft fairs and online. Philippa very kindly gifted me the most delicious rhubarb and custard scented treat to add to my slightly excessive (read: out of control) candle collection.

The candles are handmade using soy wax, meaning they burn for up to twice as long as paraffin wax and emit less toxic fumes. They're also free from artificial colourings and are scented only with essential oils. Philippa creates a range of lovely scents including Gingerbread Latte, Pina Colada and Sea Spray. 

Every candle is unique, packaged in recycled, vintage glassware and quirky jars. While the quality is highly professional, the hand tied ribbons and lace give the products a warm, personal touch. These candles would make a lovely gift (It's never too early to start Christmas shopping) with something for every taste and budget.

You can shop NaturaScents on Etsy and keep up to date with new launches on Facebook.
