Peony and Pine

Burn baby, burn! There's a luxurious new candle brand on the block that's sustainable, looks great and smells incredible too! Take a whiff...

Scented candle season is upon us and we’ve found a gorgeous brand that you’re going to lurrve!

Peony and Pine is the lockdown baby of mum-of-three Nikki Matts. She’s been waxing lyrical (come on, that’s great!) about living sustainably for the past 10 years, and when lockdown hit, she used her time to start up a new business.

She started testing out a range of candles at home with her daughter before settling on a super sustainably sourced, natural, soy wax and now that she’s gone full pelt with her business, she’s doing what she can to make her candle biz as eco friendly and sustainable as possible.

All hand-poured in her Leicestershire workshop at the end of her garden, the more-ishly scented combos are pretty incredible. From Black Cherry, to Cinnamon and Apple, Dark Honey and Tobacco – they’re the perfect waft for an autumn evening at home.

She’s been going less than a year but already has stockists in America and Europe and she’s thought about pretty much everything, from the sustainably sourced cotton wick to the biodegradable bubble wrap, the cool refill service (buy one and send it back for a refill) to the vegan friendly ink.

There’s also wax melts which come in cotton bags. They retain so much of the delicious scent that they’ve been known to be hung in wardrobes!

Look out for her candle making workshops coming next year! Candles start from £10 and vary from 15 – 120hr burn time.

Peony and Pine. Harborough Indoor Market, Northampton Road, Market Harborough, Leicestershire, LE16 9HB.
