A little bit about Olivetreehome..
Hi, I'm Helen, a scent obsessed candle maker who is lucky enough to experiment, design and create all of my candles and hand made home fragrance from my fab new home based studio in Essex where I sometimes rope in my 2, occasionally enthusiastic children to help from time to time.
I have always adored vintage cut glass, so I decided to launch my cut glass collection of beautifully scented soy wax candles which have very quickly become Olivetreehome's signature.
Alongside creating candles I also teach candle making classes and offer limited edition candle making at home kits. Please do contact me if these are not available when looking as I now bring out exclusively but I will always try and help.
Now more than ever we all deserve time for ourselves and the opportunity to indulge in a treat every now and again. If you are looking for the perfect way to treat yourself and others, I offer a monthly candle subscription box, jam packed with 2 gorgeous candles and a gorgeous surprise small business treat delivered to your door every month. One for you, one as a gift..everyone's happy!
My passion for scent is strongly influenced by its connection to memories, this led to my idea to scent weddings in the most beautiful and bespoke way. This experience takes full advantage of one of our most powerful senses. I adore this offering and really wish I had thought of the idea when I got married!!
My collections grew last year with the launch of my Essential Oil collection. These essential oil packed moisturising washes, lotions and candles are the result of a collaboration with Essex based Lydia Packham who has beautifully illustrated each fragrance blend.
Fun fact: I get asked a lot where the name Olivetrehome comes from, well its simply down to the fact I have two gorgeous Olive trees outside my front door. We bought these 9 years ago after our move from the Lake District to Essex and they kind of signify the start of a new chapter. They are one of my most favourite trees too.
The important bit... Every candle is created using pure soy wax flakes, paraben free oils along with lead free cotton blend wicks to ensure a clean even burn. My passion when developing each candle range, is to combine these high quality ingredients and create a wonderful scented candle that you can actually smell, relax and unwind to.
I hope you love..
