From my heart, to your home…

“My aim is to make gorgeous yet affordable home fragrance products which enhance your environment and smell great, all whilst treading softly on this beautiful planet we call home.

I started my small business back in 2019 making candles and home fragrances from my kitchen table and have grown to having nearly 30 stockists across Wales and also overseas, something I am immensely proud of.”

The Calon Home Story… from teacher to candle-maker!

When I talk about the Calon Home story, I’m actually talking about me, Julia,  and my story. I’ve not always been a chandler, in fact after graduating from Swansea I entered the corporate world working in Sales and then HR before deciding to qualify as a French and Spanish teacher back in 2006. I worked up to Head of Department and eventually in 2012 we relocated to Harlech in North Wales. Being a non-Welsh speaker it was difficult to continue teaching in an area where all schools are Welsh-medium, and so I made the decision to set up my own business and to be more present with my own two children.

First of all I set up a jewellery company selling fine silver keepsake jewellery featuring fingerprints, handprints and even pet paw prints. It was very labour intensive and whilst I loved being able to create these special pieces for people, I started experimenting with making my own candles, something which I always bought for my own home but was never happy with.  In other words, I thought I could do better(!)

Fast forward to 2019 and after many many months of testing, Calon Home was born, specialising in a range of candles, home fragrance and candle gift sets.  We had very humble beginnings from a kitchen table and we started off selling a small range of luxury scented candles alongside long-lasting natural wax melts.  I knew I wanted to add a personal touch so I began offering the option to personalise the candle lids so that people to make gifting the candles even more special.  We now produce hundreds of luxury scented candles that are now shipped around the UK and further afield.

We have now expanded our range to stock a range of wax burners and matches alongside some beautiful home accessories.

I have lived and worked in Wales pretty much since I was 18 and am proud to include the beautiful Welsh language on many of Calon Home’s offerings.

Flying the Flag for Wales

“I may have been born in England, but I have been living in Wales pretty much ever since I came here to University back in 1997. I love the Welsh language, and whilst I am not fluent… I am getting there.

My husband is a proud Welsh speaker, and both my children go to a Welsh school so it was important for me to feature this beautiful language on my products and packaging.”
