About The Candle Bothy

About

Nothing can beat the cosy light of a flickering candle and paired with your favourite scent it makes for pure relaxation.

After making candles as a hobby, for family and friends and for charity events, I developed a passion for candle making. I am always striving to make simple, natural, long-lasting candles that burn clean and scent a room with vibrant fragrances. I love to combine natural waxes with fine fragrance oils that will give you hours of shimmering light, a lovely scent and a stunning looking candle that will fit any home. 

I want my products to be of the highest quality and long-lasting yet affordable. The simple carton packaging protects the products and is ideal for gifts. 

I love to experiment with new waxes, fragrance oils and developing new products.

All of The Candle Bothy products are hand-poured in small batches in Dundee.

I am part of several creative networks and have started a few collaborations with other makers. One of my collaborations is with Nicola, the owner of Last Winter who makes stunning wax melt warmers exclusively for The Candle Bothy.

More collaborations are in planning stages.

I still do a lot of charity work and run the Makers for Maggie’s markets in Dundee. These markets bring together a number of designer, artists and makers all supporting Maggie’s Cancer Centre in Dundee. For more information visit: www.facebook.com/makersformaggies

Thanks for visiting my website. I hope you enjoy The Candle Bothy products.

Best wishes.
