  • Chamomile- Tin Candle

    Collection: Oxford Botanic Garden

    Fragrance: Chamomile
    Chamomile is commonly used to make herbal infusions. A tea, for example, is made by adding dried chamomile flowers to hot water, and is famously referred to by Beatrix Potter in her Tale of Peter Rabbit. Chamomile has a long and rich history of use as a medicinal herb. Records of its use date back to the ancient Romans, Greeks and Egyptians who believed that the flowers contained both magical and healing properties, and by the Anglo-Saxons to ward off disease and to promote good health. Chamomile is still widely used today to promote relaxation and as a remedy for reducing stress.

  • Violet- Tin Candle

    Collection: Oxford Botanic Garden

    Fragrance: Violet
    Violets, and their garden relatives, the pansies, have a rich history and folklore, and have long been grown for their fragrance and medicinal uses. Prized by the ancient Greeks, their popularity as cut flowers reached a height in Victorian and Edwardian times. Violets were cultivated in Dorset, Devon and Cornwall in the 1930s. The remnants of walled flower fields, in which they were cultivated to send to Covent Garden market, still remain in parts of Cornwall. They are still used as a source for scents in the perfume industry, and newly opened violet flowers  are sometimes used to decorate salads.

  • Waterlily – Tin Candle

    Collection: Oxford Botanic Garden

Remains of the flowers have been found in ancient Egyptian burial tombs. Waterlilies also famously feature in the French impressionist painter Claude Monet’s paintings depicting the lily pond in his garden in Giverny. Waterlilies are among the most popular aquatic garden plants today.

  • Whisky – Tin Candle

    Collection: Mr TROTTER’S

    Fragrance: Whisky
    Whisky has been created in Ireland and Scotland since time immemorial, and recently English distilleries are getting in on the act. For those special Malt whiskies, barley is the base; and the distilled spirit is aged in oak barrels. But many malts, like those of the Island of Islay, have a special character, derived from the peat with which they are smoked.
