Hestia's Flame Natural Candles

At Hestia's Flame Natural Candles, we hand make luxurious aromatherapy candles from 100% soy wax and pure essential oils only. We also make non-toxic aromatherapy reed diffusers.


Our candles are formed from 100% soy wax which is natural and sustainable. Our scents are blended from pure essential oils, not synthetic perfumes, so they will be therapeutically beneficial as well as smell wonderful.  Our wicks are natural and our containers are tin or glass which are easily recycled.  We use the maximum amount of essential oils that the wax can support.  This means your candle will smell as strong at the end as it does when you first light it.


“I really love candles. Always did; especially ones that smell nice. So I was very concerned to learn that most of them are not at all good for you. And so Hestia’s Flame was lit! I decided to make my own lovely, positive and beneficial candles and now you can enjoy them too.” - Sophia Russell, Aromatherapist, Perfumer & Proprietress – Hestia’s Flame.

"The excitement of a parcel arriving is sometimes much nicer than the contents but in the case of candle club, it's even better to open it. The smell is divine even before you light the candle, and there's a different one every month, which is always suitable for the season."                             

-Jane Mann, Pitchcombe

Bespoke Blends

We are pleased to undertake bespoke orders if there is a scent you particularly desire or an area of your wellbeing you wish to enhance. 


Sophia is both a trained Perfumier and a qualified aromatherapist (see here for more info) and enjoys working with her clients to create the scents, candles and aromatherapy preparations of their dreams.


  • The process begins with an initial meeting (usually on Zoom or the telephone) between you and Sophia to discuss your requirements.  Sophia carries out an aromatherapy consultation with you to make sure the most appropriate oils are selected and any contraindications to your health are avoided.  Afterwards, you will receive samples of your bespoke scent in the post for you to choose between.  You make a payment of £60 to cover the consultation, follow up and samples at this point.

  • A follow up conversation between you and Sophia ensues to find out how you like your bespoke aromatherapy blend and arrange any adjustments.  A second set of samples follows by post if necessary.

  • Once the blend is finalised, there is a discussion about packaging and volume so Sophia can quote you for your products.  These will be priced according to the ingredients and time involved in creating your items.  Please note, there is a minimum candle test batch of 1 kg.

  • On receipt of payment for your bespoke products, Sophia makes up your preparation and carries out testing for safety and performance.

  • Finally, your lovely things are ready and dispatched with all speed.  There is no minimum requirement on any future order as we will then have all the information needed to reproduce your aroma in any size or volume.  It is yours, forever and unique!
