Once upon a time, a self confessed bibliophile was excited when they discovered candles that claimed to bring their favourite books to life though the power of scent. They excitedly unwrapped the packaging and lit the candles, waiting with bated breath to be transported into their favourite stories...but they were disappointed.
The scents were weak and didn't match the books they were supposed to represent. They were smoky, sooty and not all what they expected. Being an inventive sort, they thought they could do better!
They used the best quality soy wax, which was vegan and environmentally friendly. They filled the candles to the brim with high quality fragrance oils and packaged them with labels that evoked the fantastic characters and places they loved.
The result was high quality candles that took them far and away into their favourite books, and they're ready to share them with you all.
So The Reading Room Candle Co. was born...
...and grew into The Candle Rooms!
Through the support of our wonderful customers, we have been able to grow our business over the last five years, adding our organic essential oil brand, The Ritual Room as well as our own range of handmade, cruelty-free and vegan-friendly skin care products, including bath salts, soaps, moisturising body oils and solid shampoo.
...and then we got to open our doors!
In 2021 we were proud to open our first retail space in our native Northern Ireland, The Candle Rooms, bringing together all our brands and ranges together under one roof. Later that year, we were incredibly excited to launch this site and allow everyone the opportunity to shop The Candle Rooms!
As ever, we couldn't do this without you, so whether this is your first visit or your 30th, thank you, you are so very welcome!
