About A R B R E
Hello. I'm Sally and I make candles. I wanted to do more than just make candles. I wondered how I could use my little bit of knowledge and skill in a way that could help the planet. It's all very worrying what's happening to our planet isn't it? I'm hoping that in a small way, we (ie you and I) can make positive change. So when you buy a candle (a lovely handmade one made with plant based wax, a wooden wick and pure essential oils) a tree will be planted in the UK on your behalf. Your tree will be planted in the British Isles and will be a native species: either Scot's pine, oak, hazel, alder, birch or rowan. Your tree will never be chopped down for timber you will be pleased to know, but will help to rewild our beautiful land, assist biodiversity and help to trap CO2.
