The Really Good Candle Company is a small family run craft business based in a village just outside Glasgow.
of using mass produced candles that rarely did as they were meant, we
decided to research candle making and try to make our own.
Our first misconception was that it would be easy, our second was that we would settle for making the odd candle now and again! Candle making quickly became an addiction and we spent inordinate amounts of time trying to create the "perfect" candle. We have now realised that the perfect candle does not exist since there is always some improvement, however minor, to be made.
happy that we could create a safe, quality product we started gifting
them to friends and family. After a short while people asked if they
could buy our candles, that is how we got started.
Thus started one of
the steepest learning curves we have ever faced. We looked to friends
and family to support us on our learning journey and they all in their
own way, helped get us to where we are now. From helping with IT and
e-commerce, to lifting and laying heavy boxes and setting up a dedicated
work area in our home, they have worked to ensure we are a truly family
run business. The results of many hours research, learning, making and testing can be seen on these pages.
Ours is a small business that works hard to produce a high quality product while maintaining a personal service for customers. Please feel free to contact us with any candle requests and we'll help if we can.
The ethos of The Really Good Candle Company is simple, we make really good candles and home scenting products!
Each of our products is hand crafted using the finest ingredients sourced locally and internationally.
We use cooler burning soy wax and rigorously test every fragrance oil, wick and container combination to ensure they work well together.
The result is a product that gives a wonderful aroma that smells as good on the first use as it does on the last.
We hope you enjoy your purchase and if you have any questions please feel free to contact us here.
