A bit about me!

 I initially started making candles for family & friends as a hobby in 2017 when I was working in the NHS and it was a great way to de-stress at the end of a busy the day.
Following a move to the Isle of Lewis in 2018 with my husband, 2 boys and our 3 dogs, I was able to develop my hobby further and so 'Uig Candles' was born.

I love nature and I am very fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful places in the UK surrounded by amazing scenery.

I am inspired by the seasons and all the fragrances that are found in them and I enjoy capturing this in my candles.


It is important to me that my candles are eco-friendly and so I use 100% natural soya wax with cotton and linen wicks and premium fragrance oils that are paraben and phalate free, which are sourced in the UK and are not tested on animals.


I hand pour my candles in small batches, using containers that are re-usuable and recyclable.


I want to create beautiful, scented candles that you can take home with you to enjoy and which will inspire happy memories.
