Welcome to ‘Uig Candles.’…


Towards the end of 2017 I began to make hand poured 100% natural soya wax candles that I combine with premium fragrance oils.

I was working as a practice nurse in Bath at the time and found that making candles was a great way to de-stress after a busy day and it was something that I really enjoyed doing and a great hobby to have. 

My finished products were enthusiastically received by friends and family, which was very encouraging and I also attended a couple of the local craft fairs and had positive feedback.


Towards the end of 2017 my husband and I made the decision to relocated to Uig on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides , an area that we had fallen in love with many years before and had been visiting on a regular basis to see family. 

It has been an amazing lifestyle change for us to move here and our 3 dogs are also enjoying all the beautiful beaches!


After some thought I decided to rebrand from 'The Bay Tree Candle Company' to 'Uig Candles' as I wanted to have a company name that reflected the local area that I was now living in.

 I am looking forward to having a bit more time to devote to establishing my candle business and creating products that you will enjoy and be happy with.
