Lyla Belle Candle Co. is a small family run business making highly scented wax melts and wood wick candles. We use soy and other natural waxes in our products and aim to be as eco friendly as possible with our packaging, using recyclable pots and postal packaging. During a period of ill health, Jamie found candle making occupied him and we quickly realised he was pretty good at it! We found we could make a far superior candle than many we used to buy and so we decided to create our very own brand and the business was born.
It’s been a lot of work to get to where we are now but we have enjoyed every minute! Candles are actually an exact science and there are lots of variables to consider, such as temperatures, wick types and sizes, fragrance oil percentages etc. Lots of testing is involved over a long period of time to ensure the perfect combination of wax, fragrance and wicks to create an outstanding candle. The support and feedback from our customers has been truly amazing and has inspired us to forge forward and build the business further. We simply love what we do and to have happy customers is our biggest reward.
Our business name was originally Cathedral Candles. We are based just outside the beautiful Cathedral City of Ely and we are lucky enough to be able to view ‘The Ship of the Fens’ from our home. We recently decided to re-brand as we wanted a brand that appealed all over the country and not just around our local area. After a lot of thought and discussion, Lyla Belle Candle Co. was created and we couldn’t be happier with our new brand and our quirky watercolour label designs! Lyla Belle is our children’s names mixed together – as a family business, we felt it was important for our new name to represent and mean something to us. We look forward to making more home fragrance products for many years to come and we hope you enjoy them, as much as we do making them.
