My love of fragrances developed from an early age, always evoking memories – the smell of fresh linen reminding me of home, scents which make you feel warm and cosy, and those which take you straight back to a fabulous holiday or time of complete inner peace. I want to bring that huge sense of comfort, relaxation, positivity and joy to you and those you buy gifts for.
We are living through the strangest of times and we all need to be taking greater care of ourselves, listening to what our inner self needs, creating a positive space to live, work and play in. I create each Little Flickers candles to help enhance your mood and envelop you with positivity, whatever you are going through.
And this also makes them ideal gifts. Sending positive vibes and your love to friends and family to make them smile and know that they are cherished and valued – what could be better?
Me and my team of boutique candlemakers create each candle by hand, meaning that every candle is truly individual. We even collect the additional petals from gardens and florists around my parents’ home in Berkshire – everyone saves them for us. It’s these touches that ensures that no one will ever have the same candle as you!
All candles are handmade to order using natural, clean burning coconut and soy wax, which as well as the environmental and cruelty-free benefits also creates a longer lasting candle with a more intense and pure aroma. We don’t ever use paraffin.
I also want to share my passion for crystals – which I have found essential for self healing and helping me through some dark times. I spend hours testing combinations of scents and crystals to create a new candle. It doesn’t always work – sometimes a crystal will sink because it’s overwhelmed by a scent – but when it works, like Little Flickers of Self Love with Rose Quartz crystal, then it’s a winning formula.
All our crystals are ethically sourced and we ensure they are properly cleansed before we place in a candle. Their therapeutic qualities matched with the of aromas ensure our candles are designed to help overcome self-doubt, lack of self love, and even to clear out the negative thoughts in your mind and bring about positive vibrations, serenity and energy, when you need a little boost.
I hope this gives you a bit of background about Little Flickers of London, why they are different and that we are very proud to have candles for every occasion, room, mood and activity – all made with love.
