Our story

Mind Retreat candles are all home made and hand poured by myself, Heather, in my kitchen. They are made using 100% soy wax, to ensure a clean burn, and made with fragrance oils that are carefully blended to ensure that each and every candle has a powerful scent throw. All products are safe to burn every day in the home. Using soy wax ensures that harmful toxins are not released into the environment and that no soot residue is left behind.

As a working mum of 3 lively boys, burning a scented candle is key to helping me relax and unwind after a busy day at the office. Not to mention the crazy conveyor belt of school runs, homework, football training, washing, cooking and school lunch prep! Sitting down to unwind with a relaxing candle burning in the background is what I look forward to each evening. It signifies my ‘me’ time.

With this as my inspiration, I decided to create my own range of candles, with fragrances that I love for all different occasions. Whether I am dreaming of my next holiday or trying to unwind and prepare my mind for a restful nights sleep, I know that the candles I make and sell are clean, safe and all hand made by me. All products used in the making of my candles are sourced responsibly and from the UK where possible. A key focus of the brand is to become plastic free where possible, and to continue to reduce our carbon footprint. At the start of the year I launched a refill and return service for candle and diffuser jars. I have also partnered up with some amazing local stockists, one of which is a packaging and plastic free store. Their ethos and values very much support my own, and it’s exciting to work alongside such a fabulous shop.
