Burning candles is a wonderful way to create a sense of warmth and atmosphere in a space, and when that candle burns to create a divine fragrance, the sensory experience is just pure bliss. That’s what captured Tennille Skelly’s senses when she first came across natural soy candles, and she’s fallen so in love with these candles that her and husband Mark have created their own business, Lush Soy Candles and Diffusers.

Tennille and Mark create a beautiful range of handmade luxury soy candles, reed diffusers and room sprays from their home studio in Goulburn, and Tennille says it’s the natural soy candles’ creamy soft texture, the clean burn and amazingly strong fragrance that she longs to share with others. The pair are passionate about making their products as close to natural as possible using 100% natural soy wax sourced from local Australian suppliers, and lead-free cotton wicks. These luxury candles are made in different types of glassware including American ball mason preserving jars and French apothecary glassware.

The candles come in a range of 24 gorgeous fragrances with some of the most popular being the champagne & strawberries, caramel & vanilla, lavender, cucumber & sage, and sage & pomegranate. The Lush reed diffusers use a flax seed base and fragrance oil and include such delights as coconut & lime splice, green tea & lemongrass, French pear and sweat pea & vanilla.

You can find Lush Soy Candles and Diffusers at the markets on the first and third Sunday of the month, just follow your nose and get ready to indulge your senses.
