The Derbyshire Candle Company is based just outside Ashbourne on the southern tip of the Peak District. All our candles are inspired by the natural beauty of the area and aim to bring the fragrances of the peaks, hills, dales and woodland in to your home.
Our family are passionate about the protection and development of this extraordinary environment and each candle sold will contribute to the conservation of the Peak District and its wildlife. Click here to read more.
Hi, I'm Harriet! I'm currently a student in Nottingham but I spend my weekends and holidays here in Ashbourne. Being a student, I have ridiculously long summer holidays, so I thought I'd be creative with my time. I began the Derbyshire Candle Company in the Summer of 2017, hoping to create beautiful, luxury candles inspired by the Peak District.
Though it is hard to be 100% eco-friendly, we try to keep the environment in mind with every aspect of the candle. We use a Cotton lead-free wick to give a clean burn, and all our candles are Soy wax; a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans- a renewable resource. Our candles are held in recyclable jars, and our packaging is all recyclable too!
Our candles are made locally, in Ilam, which not only limits our impact on the environment via transportation, but also supports local business.
Naturally in designing our candles we have chosen products which are both environmentally friendly but also provide the best fragrances and burn quality.
