Manchester Candles are a leading company, going above and beyond creating luxury, natural & hand made products that target areas in our lives we struggle with.
Whether it is feeling more alive & awake, to slowing down and adding calm to promote sleep. Manchester Candles have worked hard to solve our problematic areas with a wide range of products from:
Manchester Candles don't just create natural products, their website is also filled with helpful hints and tips for using their products and getting the most out of them.
Example: not burning a candle for longer than 4 hours, as the glass gets way to hot and can smash.
NO WASTE: Once the candle has been used, the jars can easily be washed out with warm soapy water and reused.
Once you have used that diffuser you can wash out your bottle and as all diffusers come with a screw top you can easily reuse in lots of useful ways. All products are recyclable.
Manchester Candles are 100 per cent vegetarian.
Candles are made with a blend of rapeseed and coconut wax produced right here in the UK for a cleaner burn and a stronger scent throw. What is BEST is that the candles are made RIGHT HERE in the North West of England.

I was blessed with the opportunity to try the Lavender Self Care kit, focusing on sleep. As you all know with Lyme one of my worst symptoms is insomnia. With insomnia, it affects all areas of your life: energy levels, mood and performance. Improving this area of life can be the piece of the puzzle we were missing to create a full picture.
We all want to live full, active lives. Not feel fatigued, low functioning and foggy. Lack of sleep contributes to these feelings.
It is easy to walk to your pill cabinet and look for aids but especially with Lyme and other chronic diseases the natural route is the best road to go down. Our bodies are TIRED, OVERWHELMED and OVERLOADED with toxins.
I have to say after struggling for so many years, I did begin to wonder if natural aids would pack the power I needed to over-ride the pain and help me drift off.
As you all know I eat a plant-based & vegan diet because again everything has to be fresh, limiting toxins and natural so the products I use also have to be safe. This is why Manchester Candles really appealed to me. Plus being self-employed myself I know how important it is to support amazing, independent businesses.
I used the self-care kit as a night routine for a week:
I take a bath every night as showers are a no-go with low blood pressure.
So, I added the bath salts and bomb ( we were ideal for me) to my bath which I normally have at 6.20-6.45pm every evening.
I then ate dinner before lighting my SLEEP candle from 8-9.30pm.
Normally I hop into bed about 10pm and it takes me a good 2 hours of tossing turning before I drift off, before waking up at 3/4am.
By 9pm my eyes were struggling. I was drifting off. This was so surprising to me because like I say normally I am interreacting with all you guys over on social media, listening into travel training webinars or writing out content plans until 10/10.30pm each evening. I am tired but wide awake with pain.
I found myself putting my phone down getting into bed earlier and managing to sleep until 4am without as many disturbances. I found myself feeling fresher and my brain was less foggy each
