About cucumber wood candles

Soywax candles and diffusers with essential oils - lovingly made by hand, each one is unique!

​Welcome to Cucumber Wood Candles!

I make all my candles by hand at home in my kitchen in Caversham, Berkshire. Working in small batches I use the best ingredients - simply natural soy wax and essential oils, giving a fantastic scent. Cucumber Wood is a pretty, local woodland - I discovered it on a vintage map of Caversham and thought it had a lovely ring to it. ​I love creating new and seasonal blends and sourcing perfect containers so your candles look as gorgeous as they smell.

​Caring for the environment is important to me. My candle tins are recyclable and the glass containers can be reused as tea light holders. Cucumber Wood vintage candle containers can regain their original purpose as sundae dishes, egg cups, glasses and tea cups. ​I reuse packaging wherever possible, and there isn't a carrier bag in sight - I use hand-stamped paper bags and offer calico bags for gift purchases.

I hope you love my candles and diffusers as much as I enjoy making them. Take a look at my Instagram page (@cucumberwoodcandles) for more pictures!

Always burn candles within sight, keep them away from drafts and vibrations, keep out of reach of children and pets and never burn near anything that can catch fire. Trim wick to 5mm before lighting, keep candle free of any foreign materials including matches and wick trimmings, only burn the candle on a level, fire resistant surface and don't burn the candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
