You will have worked out by now that I am candle daft. What once started as an innocent penchant for Yankee Candle jars has now turned into a fully fledged addiction and this month I have been blessed with the opportunity to try the best that Scottish candles have to offer.
Last month, I pointed you all in the direction of the Poet Range by McKelvie candles but that was just the tip of the handcrafted-Scottish-candle iceberg and now I’m here to share three more amazing companies and some reasons why you need these products on your coffee tables, bookshelves and bedside cabinets.
Tucked away in the Scottish Highlands, Mulderie Wood candles belong to the world of Outlander as they boast the ability to bring Scottish woodlands into your own home. I was lucky enough to try three of their amazing scents: Daffodil, Bergamot and Baby Powder. All three are uniquely wonderful and bring their own sense of nostalgia in different ways. I recommend Mulderie Wood for the countryside lovers among you all. The delicate charm of the quaint tins and ribbon they are packaged in just adds to the feeling of otherworldliness and each candle has a high scent payoff.
Follow Mulderie Wood on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Visit their Etsy store or check out my Outlander giveaway on Instagram to win your own Daffodil candle. For more information, read my 5 Reasons To Buy Mulderie Wood candles.
I’ve been dying to get my hands on some more MoBros candles ever since my Auntie bought me their Wild Bluebell sampler as a Get Well Soon gift when I broke my leg. I was not let down by the dreaminess of their Black Pepper and Black Pomegranate fragrances. These candles ooze luxury and class from the richness of their scents to the intricacy of their beautifully designed packaging. I would recommend a MoBros candle as the ultimate pamper-night companion. Run yourself a hot bubble bath and let the warmth of their Black Pepper candle take you away.

Pay attention book lovers because these are the candles for you. Inspired by a variety of popular literature from Harry Potter to Outlander to A Court of Thorns and Roses, Meraki Candles has something for everyone. They make the perfect gift and Heather from Meraki Candles is always coming up with new scents and designs to keep things exciting. I’ve tried Outlander inspired Lallybroch and delectably sweet Cookies and Dreams. I can’t wait to get my hands on a Bertie Botts candle too. Just like the magical jelly beans, these candles come in a variety of wild and wonderful scents and you won’t know what you’re getting until it has arrived. The Bertie Botts scents come in 30 possible variations from strawberries and cream, coconut and lime, chocolate orange and coffee, making your candle experience even more exciting. Meraki Candles make the ultimate book reading companion.
