Himalayan Handmade Candles
Inspiration from the unexpected; the vintage; the distressed; bygone times defines our candle collection. Fragrances are complex and layered, designed to evoke a particular time and place and triggered by memories and nostalgia.
Himalayan Candles makes beautifully fragranced candles in original reusable containers. Their candles are poured using artisan techniques with a natural soy wax blend and high quality essential and fragrance oils. They will burn exceptionally well - a clean even burn with minimal sooting, leaving little to no residue and a lingering fragrance. Himalayan Candles are handmade and packaged at their studio in Decatur, Georgia, where they offer a competitively paid, pleasant and flexible working environment. Small scale manufactures in northern India are the exclusive source for their containers. They only work with factories that have transparent and fair working conditions for their staff.
The company was started in 2004 by Julia Leaphart in her kitchen. It was founded as a way to connect with a childhood spent in a small town in the foot hills of the Himalayas and the need to earn a living for herself and her young daughter. She began pouring candles into wooden containers bought from India and selling them at local antique shows and craft fairs. The company grew from there as it found its niche selling high quality artisan candles.
At the Cottage, we are especially enamoured with the company’s Fleur de Lys range, featuring candles in a wonderfully distressed mercury finish embossed glass, reminiscent of the Gilded Age celebrated on Jekyll Island. These affordably priced candles are available in unique scents like Rain Barrel, Patchouli,m Ginger, and Rose & Oak.
"Infusing our lives with love."
