Behind the brand


Hi, I'm Helen!  owner/creator of Olivetreehome. 

Growing up in the beautiful lake district, I am a northern girl at heart, but along with my little family, we made the huge decision to move down south over 8 years ago now!!. We are now building a great life in Chelmsford, Essex.  I can honestly say we have not looked back..

With the support of my fab husband Paul and my 2 children, Emily and Harry, I created my little business back in October 2017.  
What originally began as a furniture redesign business Olivetreehome has organically grown into the candle house it is today after I became slightly addicted to creating and experimenting with candle making whilst waiting for my painted furniture to dry!!
I have always loved scented candles, I mean, who doesn't!! but I often felt disappointed at the lack of fragrance some of the candles actually produced whilst burning.  This led to the creation of my candle house. My passion is to produce luxurious candles created using premium quality ingredients but available at an affordable price. 
I also spend the time sourcing reuseable and recyclable packaging which is something I feel super passionate about. 
These candles make the perfect gift for many occasions such as, Mothers Day, Birthdays, Anniversaries, wedding gifts, but did you know I also offer to scent your wedding?
I am a firm believer that scents evoke memories, can you imagine working with me to create your perfect scented candle for your special day, the fragrance filling the wedding venue! We can then work together to produce mini versions as favours for your guests. Every time you smell your personally chosen fragrance your mind will be full of special memories!! 
My candle house has grown rapidly over the last year and I now offer a refill service for any of my previously bought candle jars,  (See further info on the refill service page.)
I also run beginners candle making classes but as these are currently postponed due to COVID-19 I have decided to launch luxury candle making kits where you can learn everything you would have learned at my class, In the comfort of your own home and receive all the essential equipment to keep!! 

Thank you so much for spending the time to read, I really hope you love my little brand as much as I do.
