a big hello from me.
I'm Laura and I run light box candles. I am a brand new mum, based in Manchester and I absolutely love a candle (I know, there's a surprise). Candles are a big part of switching between day and night for me and a way to bring a little bit of calmness if I am feeling particularly anxious (which seems to have ramped up to another level lately!).
I am passionate that we should give ourselves permission to pause and dedicate time for our own self care rituals that help us to feel good.
After falling pregnant I started to become more aware of what was burning around me and my little bump when I was lighting candles. I started doing my research and found a whole new world of clean burning candles, natural alternatives to the mainstream brands which I became obsessed with. There are so many independent artisan makers which pour their heart and soul into every candle jar they make to craft naturally fragranced blends that have wonderful wellbeing benefits. I wanted to find a way to share each and every one of these.
And so in 2020 light box candles was born. A monthly subscription service to help with the simple discovery of natural artisan candles which are created to help us to feel good. Too often, time for ourselves is pushed to the bottom of the list and our mission is to make sure this doesn't happen.
With the help of our light boxes we aim to bring a wellbeing boost to your day and inspire a little bit of self care to keep that inner light burning bright.
