The Scented Candle Studio

Our Story

Holistic Intuitive & Healer

Over the last 25 years I have worked as an Aromatherapist , Holistic Intuitive and Healer. I love the fascinating side the Universe can present itself to us. I have been making candles with essential oils for some time which I find so relaxing and rewarding with such therapeutic benefits for my clients. Therefore I felt inspired to create a range of candles with Laura my daughter-in-law, who has a passion for fine, luxury home scents and promote the message of the Honey Bee now an integral part of my garden.

Since the birth of Bea Loves in 2017, our business has expanded from working in our kitchen to a large log cabin workshop situated in our garden. Here we can further expand our candle making (chandling) and I have my own office space. With lovely views into the garden from our workplace, we can watch for the many species of bumble bee, and the sound of honeybees working fastidiously gathering pollen.

Become Close to Nature

A garden, whether large or small, is a haven of peace and contemplation, helping you become at one with nature and experience the benefits for your mental health and wellbeing; plants teach us about the importance of wildlife and the environment so we can all live side by side in peace and tranquillity.
A great enjoyment for me has been the arrival of honeybees in the garden. My Grandad, Percy Cartwright, kept bees in his orchard in Kilburn, a quaint village nestled under the famous White Horse. I fondly remember his many white WBC traditional hives and take pride in having followed him as a Yorkshire Beekeeper for the last 5 years. We have 4 hives which supply us with the wonderful gift of raw honey each year.

Industry in Quiet Places

Laura and I love good old Yorkshire value for money, we love making quality products and selling them at affordable prices so they can be for everyone to try and enjoy. It is part of our Yorkshire heritage. Our artisan workshop is where everything is handmade with great love and pride by our small team.
My great grandfather Robert ‘The Mouseman’ Thompson, was a believer of ‘industry in quiet places’, where local people were employed with respect. Men were trained as craftsmen for life and the workplace was part of the village community for all to enjoy. This successful ethos still continues today in Kilburn.
