Welcome to the eighth edition of my Supporting Small Businesses series. I would like to introduce you to The Lemon Tree Candle Co., a company born out of a lockdown pastime. Rachel and Del struggled to find a candle brand which was both reasonably priced and health-friendly, so with time on their hands and lots of researching and experimenting, they crafted their own. Well, why not?!
The Lemon Tree Candle Co. creates and sells a range of luxury hand-poured candles, wax melt pods, diffusers, hand washes and hand & body lotions.
Each Lemon Tree Candle is made from a blend of coconut and rapeseed wax as its base, a wonderful fragrance (using 100% natural fragrances and essential oils) and a braided cotton wick for a clean burn. Also, being plant-based means they are vegan-friendly and animal cruelty-free! To maintain their quality, The Lemon Tree Candles are hand-poured in small batches, so customers know great attention has been paid to the production of their products.
Based in the heart of Mid Wales, The Lemon Tree Candle Co. has utilised some quintessentially Welsh names for some of their fragrances. Names such as Cwtch, Calon Lân and Cariad conjure feelings of warmth and love. One of the more English names, Ginger Biscuit, has you wanting to sit back and relax with a cup of tea (and, of course, a biscuit!). The candles come in medium (165g) or large (220g) jars (which can be reused) in a choice of black or white, as well as in a small, silver-coloured tin (85g).
The wax melt pods are available in the same lovely fragrances as the candles. Each fragrance is available as 5 melt pods (approx. 7g each) in a gift tin or in a biodegradable glassine bag. If you can’t decide which fragrance is for you, The Lemon Tree Candle Co. do ‘Pick ‘n’ Mix’ wax melt pods. So rather than having to take a chance on a particular scent, you can try out a variety of wax melt pods at very little cost and then choose your favourite scent.
If reed diffusers are more your thing, The Lemon Tree Candle Co. has those too! Each reed diffuser comes with a 100ml glass bottle with a silver neck collar and 6 black matt reeds infused with the vegan-friendly and cruelty-free fragrance or essential oil of your choice.
With everyone’s hands suffering from all this use of hand gel and the cold winter weather, The Lemon Tree Candle Co. has also introduced hand washes and lotions to their range. These come in stylish, reusable, aluminium bottles (250g) and keep your skin soft, clean and smelling great.
Launched in November 2020, The Lemon Tree Candle Co. has already built up a good fan base. I was lucky enough to win a gift box of goodies via a giveaway on their Facebook page and I’ve been raving about them ever since.
My goodies came packaged in a lovely, crisp, white gift box with a magnet clasp and ribbon (also available to order through their website). My Lemon Tree Candle Co. goodies included a large candle in a white jar, a candle in a tin and wax melt pods, all in my chosen fragrance of Plum and Rhubarb. A “Candle Care” card was included (to ensure you enjoy and get the most out of your candles, safely), as well as a “Thank You!” card with a discount code for 10% off my next order. As soon as I pulled the ribbon and opened the gift box, the amazing fragrance of Plum and Rhubarb escaped and I hadn’t even lit the products! When lit, the scents are long-lasting and fill the room. Now, if only The Lemon Tree Candle Co. did bath melts too…
