In this episode, Rosie is joined by Sarah, from The Herberowe Candle Co., who talks about her addiction to candles which led to her to start making her own using all-natural ingredients and how it evolved into a business whilst the whole country was in lockdown.
The Herberowe Candle Co makes natural wax candles that are hand-poured in small batches in Lower Heyford. Using a blend of sustainable rapeseed and coconut wax, Herberowe products contain essential oils and support wellbeing, as well as adding natural long-lasting aromas to our homes.
The apothecary-inspired candles are free of soy, toxins, paraffin and other chemicals, and Sarah and Colin also make eco-friendly wax air fresheners, which have been hugely popular. All their packaging and jars are reusable or recyclable. The company is named after a local ancient landscape feature and the candles are inspired by the heritage and flora of the local area. For every candle sold, a donation will be made to MIND.
