Welcome to Handmade by Lisa where our candles are hand crafted from pure soy wax, hand finished, hand packaged beautifully and made in Hertfordshire with no additives or dyes.
I’ve always had a keen interest in aromatherapy and how fragrance can affect our mood, peppermint and lemon are uplifting, rosemary is clearing, geranium is balancing for moods, lavender is calming and some scents may bring back memories. I wanted to combine my passion for aromatherapy with soy wax and produce something that is not only beneficial to you but beautiful for your home too. Making good, clean burning candles was much harder than I thought and testing of many different wicks and waxes took about 18-24 months but now, here I am, bringing my products to you and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
So what is soy wax? It is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soy beans, a sustainable crop. It has a creamy appearance, is biodegradable, vegan and not tested on animals, that’s it, that’s why I use it!
I was brought up in the north east, Billingham to be exact, and am very proud of my roots. I am down to earth and speak my mind, a northern trait, possibly not always a good one!! I love blossom trees, hence my logo, I like warm, breezy summer days, crisp cold mornings, spring flowers, watching movies, food, wine and chocolate (who doesn't really?!). Now my children are at university, it’s my time and Handmade by Lisa was born.
So come and see our range of essential oil and fragranced candles, scented sachets, diffusers and tealights, all hand crafted. We also have tealight holders, gift boxes as well as hand wash and hand and body lotion.
