About My Business

Skye Candle and Body Care is a gentle nod to my beautiful daughter, Skye. When I found out I was pregnant in 2016, I wanted to find a way to stay home with my daughter and do something that I was passionate about. I began experimenting with candles and body care products. I discovered that playing with fragrances, researching natural ingredients and creating a bespoke range of home fragrances and self-care products brought me joy. Raising a child and running a small homemade and handcrafted business is a journey. There are challenges, but there is so much happiness. When you get to do what you love, surrounded by those that you love ' well, there's nothing quite like it.

Why We Should Win The Peoples Choice Award

Being a small business with one men army - Skye Candle and Body Care has funded 276 trees so far and planning to do at least 500 trees a year to align with our vision where we make products kind to you and the environment. We have reduced our plastic packaging from 95% to 5% in the last four years, and we only use eco-friendly shipping materials. With at least 200 handwritten cards leaving us every month, I still write each one of them, and every order will be shipped within two working days. I try to help some NGO, and we have a list of communities we support. During peak seasons, I do hire some helpers from women refugees or single mums to reduce the workload
