ABOUT

A Littlemore than just a candle

Some people seem to be born with a career path mapped out in front of them. Others end up doing what they do in a more organic way, enjoying the process of discovering what is really important to them and what makes them happy before wondering if they can do this every day and actually make a living out of it.

Molly, the owner and candle maker at Littlemore Candle Company, started out making candles as gifts for friends and family. Enjoying the therapeutic effects of pouring hot wax into glass jars and the romantic alchemy of blending different fragrances and essential oils to find the perfect mix, Molly switched up from hobbyist to entrepreneur. Supported and encouraged by her mum, Yvonne, she set up Littlemore Candle Company in 2018, determined to forge a successful brand from a favourite pastime. 

Knowing that there are many different brands for you to choose from when it comes to buying a candle, Molly wanted to create candles that stood out from the competition, both in terms of the unique finished products and the ethical and sustainable production processes used to make them.

Six things to love about Littlemore Candle Company

The Wax

Our candles are made in small batches from 100% soy wax.

 

Derived from soya beans, this plant-based alternative to petroleum-based paraffin wax burns longer and more cleanly, providing a more efficient and more eco-friendly way to enjoy candles. 

The Eco-Friendly Sparkle 

It looks pretty sprinkled on the top of our unlit candles; it looks even better suspended in the hot liquid wax.

 

We cannot be held responsible if you go into a trance-like state gazing at it as your candle burns!

The Crystals

Created when molten rock rises from the depths of the Earth and is subjected to changes in pressure and temperature, crystals are tiny geological messengers from pre-history.

 

Each of the candles in the Littlemore range is decorated with a specially selected crystal, with properties that compliment that particular fragrance. 

The Hand-Harvested Botanicals

Rural Oxfordshire is our home and our stomping ground and our roots are hugely important to the Littlemore Candle Co brand.

 

While our crystals and essential oils have often had quite the adventure to reach us, our hand-harvest botanicals are foraged from fields and hedgerows right on our doorstep. 

The Essential Oils & Ethically Sourced Fragrances

The power certain fragrances have to evoke emotional reactions is pretty amazing. The use of scents for their therapeutic and relaxing properties is a tradition many centuries old and it is showing no signs of waning any time soon. Our candles are made with specially blended essential oils and fragrances and each one will take you on a different journey.

The Charity Partnerships

Wherever possible, we like to link up with charities that hold a special place in our hearts. We look for causes that do something positive for the natural world and have a particular soft spot for animal charities. Over Christmas 2019, a percentage of the sales from our Gingerbread candle went to the Southern Thailand Elephant Foundation and we plan to continue supporting this charity and helping them to fund a veterinary centre to support domesticated elephants in Southern Thailand.
