Meet the Maker - Willow & Honey Candles

Willow and Honey is our premium range of wooden wick candles, a gorgeous brand founded by sisters Hannah and Lucy and their younger brother Tom. Having bought wooden wick candles from China when I was a High Street retail buyer, I knew that they would be popular but always struggled getting a strong smelling fragrance from them. We later found out that it was due to the second-rate wax that was being used by the manufacturers. That’s the difference I noticed immediately when coming across the Willow and Honey candles. Their use of high-quality soy wax means they give off a fantastic fragrance, even before you light the wick (and our customers agree!)

The Willow and Honey team pride themselves on being a ‘modern cottage industry’ as all their soy candles are handmade by Hannah and Lucy in their kitchen at home in Stratford-Upon-Avon. Truly passionate about the process, the ladies pour their heart and soul into every single candle. Another reason we love them is that they are completely transparent about how their products are made, what they’re made from and they also support other UK businesses. 

Below is a short film shot earlier this year that takes you through the process of the team making their candles on the aga!

Here at The Great British Home we believe the team at Willow & Honey certainly achieve their mission below and we just love the products. Keep doing what you’re doing!
