Anne Makes Lovely Candles

Anne's handmade soy wax candles will infuse any room with evocative and sophisticated scents that will re-awaken pleasant memories in your mind and create an ambience of welcoming warmth to any room.

Anne's hand poured, luxury, cosmetic grade scented handmade candles in glass jars and candle tins are all made in Scotland, UK and make the perfect handmade gift for any occasion. Scented soy wax candles are rapidly becoming the latest trend, most especially those with Men's fragrances.

Anne's luxury soy wax handmade candles are made with entirely natural ethically sourced renewable ingredients and are crafted using well tried techniques. We provide the highest quality exquisitely scented candles, each with its own unique characteristics, offering style and luxuriously long burning times, one of the longest burning candles available.

Environmental protection of the world in which we live is very important to us, which is why our soy wax candles are made from 100% compostable plant material and are virtually smoke and soot-free. The soy wax increases the burning time of your candle by about 50% (compared with paraffin products). Made from soybeans, the soy wax is an annually-renewable resource, which is non-toxic, biodegradable and environmentally friendly. As they are non toxic they are less likely to trigger allergies.

Soy wax is a plant based wax created from Soybeans, a renewable natural resource. Soy wax is biodegradable and any spillages are easily cleaned up using warm water and soap. Containers are easily cleaned making them recyclable and reusable.

It's so soft; you can even use it as massage oil when it's warm.

Good for you.
Good for the environment.

The Butterfly

Research reveals that the symbolic meaning of the butterfly is similar across most cultures and time. Invariably, this beautiful Celtic animal symbol represents transformation, inspiration, and rebirth. The concept of rebirth with the Celts is particularly of importance in terms of recycling of life – both in the spiritual and physical realms. Perhaps the bible and the "Byrds" extol the concept best: "To every season, turn, turn turn." This was an intimate concept with the Celts, and the butterfly – in its miraculous way symbolizes transformation and rebirth. Transition is common in all nature, and the Celtic woman would be keenly aware of its presence. As such, butterflies would adorn birthing gowns, blankets, and bed sheets as a sign of smooth transition when welcoming new babies into the village fold.

Celtic Animal Signs in Astrology

This Celtic animal sign lives up to the adage "social butterfly." Flitting from friend to friend in parties, and always in contact with loved ones (they're the ones always on the phone, or texting). They can't help it. Butterflies are gentle souls who can't be tied down for very long. They love to dream, express new ideas and talk about high-falutin plans with all their friends. These are the people who brighten up any dark day with their cheer and magnetically bright personalities. They are naturally empathetic, and would never intentionally harm anyone. Rather, they make easy friends, and like to see others uplifted. Butterflies bring a sense of wonder and youth to our world. Keep these people around you to remind you of how truly good life can be.

The Flame

Flames (Candles) symbolise and allow you to hold the power and passion of the Gods, right in the palm of your metaphorical hand. Within the collective consciousness fire blazes through the waves of thought with assertion – awing our minds with concepts of inspiration and vivacious vitality. To wit, here are a few symbolic attributes pertaining to the element of fire:

Energy,Power,Passion,Action,Sexuality,Creativity,Authority,Consumption,The Untamed

Flame or fire is held to signify zeal, as one may be consumed by zeal as well as fire. It is also a symbol of passion, spiritual energy, rebirth and purification. Fire has often been used to signify one who has undergone severe trials. The ancient Celts were keenly aware of the metaphorical significance of fire and its spiritually transformative properties. Examples of this knowledge are found in Celtic statues and art in the form of three flames or rays found upon the faces of deities or Celtic clansmen and women. These flames were rendered in lines aspiring up and outwards to the subject's forehead with the base of the three lines meeting at the bridge of the nose. This motif is symbolic of Arwen a Celtic concept of enlightenment, inspiration, and total unification of polarities (in other words, a calm balance struck between male/female, physical/ethereal, etc.. within the human awareness).

Symbolic Portents of Candle Flames

Symbolism shows itself everywhere. Even candle flames hold their own messages. Here are a few symbolic portents and symbolisms of candle flame based on Appalachian lore as well as other esoteric parables:

Accidentally tipping over a candle (aside from being alarmingly dangerous) is a sign of a wedding or partnership to come
Flame curling or looping at the tip is a portent that someone is talking about you (are your ears burning too?)
Blinking or sputtering flames are a plea to take a break, be patient otherwise you may be disappointed
A flame moving or swaying from side to side is a portent for travel opportunities on their way to you
Travellers will be coming to you if the flame is burning straight and tall
Predominance of blue within the flame indicates a frost is coming and/or you are being paid a visit from a non-local energy
Not being able to light a candle supposedly foretells a storm will blow over.
