Ah, flickering candlelight and Christmas go together like Turkey and Brussel sprouts... And with a handmade candle by BUST Craftacular London stallholder East Wick the festive effect will be all the better!
The candles are made in East London (hence the name, although there's a witchy reference in there, too) by Roxi and Em, who use all-natural vegan soy wax in a sense-stirring selection of fragrances. Fancy something sweet? Try Fig, Bergamot & Apple. Something rich? Light up the Woodland Musk. Or maybe the Coconut & Sweet Pea, with its notes of germanium and magnolia. Something a bit more refreshing? Peppermint & Eucalyptus is for you.
All the scents are available in small (£10) and large (£18) sizes, and the chic glass pots are reusable. Plus East Wick has launched a new limited edition candle for Christmas. The gals say: “This is a real cozy scent with a blend of sweet cranberry, warm frankincense and hints of spiced apple, bergamot and orange.”
The only downside? These small-batch candles are pretty popular, and as you'll see from the website, they sell out fast. Best get yourself down the the BUST Christmas Craftacular on November 22 nice and early!
