Born out of one of the many lockdowns in 2020 Suffolk Candles was created to bring you a piece of Suffolk into your home. I believe scents can trigger pleasant nostalgia and brief escapism, growing up by the seaside in a rural village I wanted to create a connection to the past, fond memories of nature and stillness or even when the electricity cuts off and you use candle light.
Hi I'm Jason a professional chef I love creating things with my hands, beautiful dishes and smells, the skills I've learnt transfer very well to candle making. Methodical processes, recipes, measurements, temperatures, testing and trying to create the best possible product possible. There's a science to it and a creative flair when testing scent combinations with an idea in mind, mixing aromas and different types of wax.
The candles created are 100% vegan and 100% recyclable being conscious of the environment we've chosen soy & vegetable wax which burn cleanly bio-degrade. Blended with essential oils and hand poured in small batches in Suffolk to maintain quality and uniqueness.
One of my favourite things to do is explore the local countryside and take photos taking a moment to enjoy the natural beauty. Which is what I've aimed for with my candles inspiration taken from a trip to the seaside or making rhubarb crumble with your family.
Hope you enjoy the candles and the photos.
