About us

Our first product, Twenty Minute Candles, came about when we put together a small box of beeswax candles and handwritten affirmation cards for a close friend who was struggling in lockdown to help her relax and restore her well-being… and she loved them! Six months later we found ourselves proud finalists in The Giftware Association’s ‘Gift of the Year’ awards.
