Irish Candle Makers – Natural & Handmade
I’m sure we’ve all been guilty of burning the candle at both ends. Some of us are continually guilty. We can’t help it. Needs must. Work goes on, whether it’s personal, family, business or in the community. It can take its toll though. So before it does, it’s important to take a breather, unwind. And burn the candle at one end. Preferably while stretched out in the bath. Or with a hot cup of coffee, or something stronger, and a book, your favourite website, or a good film. Indulge your senses, and relax. And if you are burning a candle, make it natural and handmade, and choose Irish Candle Makers.
Here are ‘Four Fabulous Irish Candle Makers‘ that keep me company when I unwind. They smell divine and fit snugly into my shop local, buy Irish ethos and sustainable living quest.
