The ethos behind Scents of the Wild is to make beautiful, natural plant wax candles that enhance wellbeing and are kind to animals and the environment.
To me, this means using *no* paraffin wax, *no* animal derivatives, *no* artificial fragrance or colourants, and *no* unsustainable, genetically modified soy wax that’s been flown from the other side of the planet.
I hand make the candles at home in Comrie using 100% natural, sustainable, European-produced soy wax, cotton & paper wicks, recyclable amber glass jars with aluminium lids, and jar labels printed on recycled paper.
The candles are infused with my own unique blends of 100% natural, pure, unadulterated essential oils – chosen both for their scent and specific therapeutic properties – and topped with real flower petals for a pretty and colourful finish.
The result is a beautiful, naturally scented, clean burning, eco-friendly, vegan soy wax candle, designed to enhance your mood while respecting and celebrating our environment!
5% of all candle sales are donated to The Woodland Trust to help support the amazing work they do to protect and restore our natural ecosystems and combat climate change.
Candles are currently available to order from my website: https://scentsofthewild.co.uk or can be hand delivered to your door if you live in Comrie.
Rachel Hendry, Scents of the Wild
I am an artist / printmaker working with metal and acid, wax, paper and ink to create intricate limited edition prints inspired by my love of nature and Scotland’s wildlife.
I studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and was a member of Edinburgh Printmakers working alongside other established printmakers where I honed my etching skills and was awarded the title ‘Queen of the soft ground’
I now work from my studio in the back garden of Gould Cottage, Drummond Street and visitors are very welcome by appointment.
My small prints are £30 mounted and £40 framed and make ideal gifts if you are looking for something a little bit different. Postage is free
