our story

The Home County Candle Co. is a luxury home fragrance brand founded by owners Hannah and Oli in 2018.

Having grown up in Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire we now hand-pour our range of beautifully scented soy candles and reed diffusers from our home in Hertfordshire. Having hand-made candles for gifts for years, The Home County Candle Co. was born during one of our many walks alongside the Grand Union Canal discussing the places we grew up. 

Our Inspiration

We feel that each of the Home Counties that we have lived in, worked in and had the pleasure of visiting has it's own unique character, whilst maintaining the stature and essence of the Home Counties as a collective. We have therefore drawn upon our experiences and memories to create our unique scents, each inspired by the Home County it is named after. 

Our Mission

At the Home County Candle Co. we are passionate about the abundance of outstanding natural beauty surrounding our home and workshop, which is why we are committed to producing sustainable products with minimal impact on the environment. Our candles are produced from natural soy wax, which is biodegradable, and vegan friendly. Our sustainable wooden wicks also not only look great but burn more slowly with a cleaner burn and more flame time.

We are also so passionate about the Home Counties we live and work in that it is important to us to support as many local businesses as we can whilst manufacturing our candles. We therefore take great care to select suppliers from within the UK, and more specifically the Home Counties wherever possible.
