Home County Candle Co

The Home County Candle Co. is a luxury home fragrance brand founded by owners Hannah and Oli in 2018.

Having grown up in Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire they now hand-pour their range of beautifully scented soy candles and reed diffusers from their home in Hertfordshire.

Hannah and Oli feel that each of the Home Counties they have lived in, worked in and had the pleasure of visiting has it’s own unique character, whilst maintaining the stature and essence of the Home Counties as a collective. They have therefore drawn upon their own experiences and memories to create their unique scents for their candles and matching reed diffusers, each inspired by the Home County it is named after.

The mission of the Home County Candle Co. is to create beautiful, sustainable hand crafted products which perfectly represent the essence of the Home Counties. Therefore all of their vegan-friendly soy candles are produced using natural soy wax developed and manufactured in the UK. Their wooden wicks also not only look fantastic and burn with a delightful crackling sound, but are also more sustainable than traditional cotton wicks.

In their first year of trading Home County Candle Co. products can be found in a number of retailers across the Home Counties and at regular local trade shows.

"Beautiful British Designs offer a great service for an independent shop owner like me. They help me find high quality products from UK designers that I would not have usually seen. I am now stocking Penny Lindop thanks to their service."


"I've been following Beautiful British Designs for a while now and am so pleased I did so. As a retailer I'm constantly looking for new and unusual products that I might not see at the zillion trade shows I visit every year. They feature so many small and interesting designers that something always catches my eye."
