What inspired you to create ‘The Little Flame’?
My inspiration for ‘The Little Flame’ came when my husband bought me a candle making set for our anniversary, during lockdown. I started to make candles and found that I really enjoyed it. Making candles for friends and family members along with their encouragement, gave me the idea to start the business. I always knew that I wanted my candles to be natural and sustainable. This is why The Little Flame only uses soy wax with cotton wicks and essential oils. The candles come in a glass container which is recyclable and finished off with a beautiful bamboo lid. Every candle is hand poured and for every candle sold a tree is planted.
What was the first thing you learnt in your candle making process?
What is your go-to fragrance oil and why?
It is always lavender and orange. I find the lavender is so calming and combined with the orange helps to relieve any anxiety at the end of the day. Nothing quite beats a lit candle to make the room cosy in the evening and curling up on the sofa with a good book!
