    About us...

    We’re Vanessa and Katie. Two sisters sharing one workshop and a passion for luxury candles which simultaneously stimulate and soothe the senses.

    We pour our passion for candle-making and crafting the perfect scent into our bespoke range, which is designed to be luxurious in everything but price.

    Constantly evolving as we’re inspired by new scents or fresh twists on tried and tested favourites, our carefully curated collection ranges from classic florals through to more unisex minerals. And lots of lovely smells in between.

    Having found our core collection of fragrances, we have now expanded our range to include soaps, lotions, diffusers and most recently, room & linen sprays.

    We take what we do very seriously but also have a lot of fun with it. Both from creative backgrounds, we can’t resist letting our personalities shine through on social. Find us on Facebook (@rosemaryandridgway) and Instagram (@rosemary_and_ridgway) to see what we mean!

    We are very socially aware and use as much recycled and recyclable packing as possible, to minimise our impact on the planet.

    So the only question is – which fragrance will you try first?

    Happy shopping!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    So, you have some questions.  Hopefully, here, you may find some answers

     

    Could you tell me what wax you use?

    Our wax is a blend of hydrogenated Soy, Coconut and other sustainable oils and is 100% plant based.  It contains no Beeswax or petroleum derived products.  It also has a naturally wonderfully creamy colour.

     

    When it's warm in the room my candle seems to be sweating. Is that ok??

    Yup, it's totally fine.  Soy & Coconut wax is all natural so changes in ambient temperature can affect it but will never affect the integrity of the candle itself.  This is just the fragrance oil being drawn to the surface.  Once you light it up again, the oil will just blend in with the wax again and smell just as amazing as ever!

     

    How do I stop my candle "tunnelling'?

    Always let your candle burn until you have achieved a full melt pool across the top of the surface of the candle.  This will ensure that when you extinguish it, you're left with a perfectly flat top ready to carry on burning next time!

    We recommend burning your candle for at least 3-4 hours each time (70g at least 2 hours).

    Sometimes I get a black, sooty residue inside the glass after a burn

    This may be because you didn't trim your wick before re-lighting your candle.  You know how much we go on at you to keep that wick nice and neat!! You can just wipe the soot off with a damp piece of kitchen towel then make sure you have a nice neat wick (1cm max length) and go ahead and light that beauty up again!  The other reason may be leaving the candle in a draught which can cause excess smoking.

     

    Can I re-use my candle glass?
    Absolutely YES! Once you've sadly reached the bottom of your candle, we recommend pouring the little bit of leftover wax into some kitchen towel carefully then wiping the glass clean whilst still molten (so as not to clog your sink with wax!), then give the glass a good wash with washing up liquid and hot water, pull out the wick retainer and VOILA! You have a lovely glass to do with anything you like! The glasses can be re-purposed as drinking glasses, pen pots, flower pots to name a few ideas.
