We are Laura & Dominique, two friends from St. Albans with a passion for pure candles.

With Laura's background as an aromatherapist and Dominique's love of design we set about creating a range of beautiful candles. Our vision was simple: the candles had to smell wonderful and be made entirely from 100% natural ingredients.

We are delighted to support The Woodland Trust by donating 10% of our profits to this worthwhile charity. It was an easy decision to make, as we have spent many hours wandering through our local woodland, Heartwood Forest, discussing our hopes and dreams for the future!

We love making our candles, from carefully formulating our aromatic blends to pouring the wax and watching them set. Some might even say we are a tiny bit obsessed! But the reality is we're truly passionate about aromatherapy and natural perfumery, and we strive to create unique and exciting scents that you will love as much as we do.

With warmest wishes,

Laura & Dominique




Why choose a Heartwood candle?


Our candles are made from 100% natural (non-GM), sustainable soy wax. This is a clean-burning wax containing no toxins, carcinogens or other pollutants, so it’s better for both your lungs and the environment.

The candles are scented with only the finest aromatherapy-grade essential oils and absolutes (with the vast majority being certified organic).

Because they contain only natural aromatics, our candles not only provide aromatherapeutic benefits but also impart a pure and true scent that will subtly fill your space without overpowering.

We never, ever use synthetic perfumes or fragrances, which can trigger allergies and cause headaches in some individuals.




Being eco-friendly is important to us. Our candles are packaged in a luxury recyclable gift box complete with poem and candle care card. There is also the opportunity to add a personal gift message at checkout.

In addition, our postal boxes are made from recycled cardboard, and the protective eco-fill is fully biodegradable.
