Hello and welcome to my world of handmade candles! My name is Jason, and I'm the heart and soul behind this candle-making journey.
In the midst of the unprecedented lockdown of 2020, I found myself searching for ways to keep both my hands and my mind busy. As a full-time chef, I'm no stranger to the pleasures of the senses, and I decided to explore a new avenue that engaged my love for aroma and the technical precision that I've honed in the kitchen.
That's when candle making entered my life.
What began as a humble experiment soon transformed into a thriving passion. I found myself immersed in the world of fragrances, melting wax to perfection, carefully weighing ingredients, and meticulously monitoring temperatures – a symphony of the senses and science that I quickly fell in love with.
As my handmade candles took shape, so did my desire to share this delightful craft with others. What began as a side hustle has blossomed into a full-fledged mission. Now, I'm not only crafting candles but also dedicated to being your guide on this aromatic adventure.
I remember the early days when I delved into candle making, and the wealth of information I encountered could be overwhelming. It's my goal to simplify this process for you, providing accessible resources and easy-to-follow instructions so that you can embark on your own candle-making journey with confidence.
Here at Suffolk Candles, you'll find not only my handcrafted candles, each infused with love and passion, but also a treasure trove of knowledge and resources to empower you in your candle-making endeavours. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a curious beginner, I invite you to explore, learn, and create with us.
Thank you for joining me on this aromatic adventure. Let's light up your creativity together, one candle at a time.
We use a unique blend of coconut soy wax, which is known for its long-lasting burn and its ability to hold fragrance well. Our candles are highly fragranced with a combination of premium oils and essential oils, ensuring that they smell amazing from start to finish.
Our candle jars are made in Britain and are the perfect complement to our candles. They are sturdy and elegant, making them perfect for any room in your home. We use cotton and linen wicks, which are known for their clean burn and their ability to provide a consistent flame.
We take the environment seriously, and we strive to minimize our impact on the planet. That's why we use eco-friendly packaging, which is not only good for the environment but also looks great.
Exploring the local countryside and capturing its natural beauty through photography is one of my passions. I strive to bring this same appreciation for the beauty of Suffolk to my candle-making. Each candle is inspired by a special moment, such as a trip to the seaside or a family recipe for rhubarb crumble.
