Dear Diary...

JARANDLES Established 2020,

Is a Solopreneur business based in a little spa town called Harrogate, in North Yorkshire. All of our wax products are made completely by hand using the old traditional artisanal methods, with only the highest of quality waxes and materials to create the perfect candle for the perfect burn. Throughout the whole of the design, from the product down to the finer details such as packaging, I have made sure that the container the candle comes in is fully recyclable & reusable for whatever you wish. All of the packaging chosen for the products is eco friendly & biodegradable.

''I have always wanted to set up my own business! I am someone who always has wild & crazy ideas! After a while I decided it was finally time to move forward with my creation! For almost a whole year I have sat & stewed over it, researching into different areas of all possibilities! So here I am..
The name is a play on words, which is something me & my very special Grandad had in common. Mixing the words 'Jar & Candles’ together as one.
Throughout the theme of the website, the design of logos, linkage of wording, to the style and boldness of the font is fully inspired by my Grandad and his magnificent larger than life, Graphic Designer & Illustrator ways. I have been lucky enough to have been shown & learnt some of his ways from my childhood. As he pushed me to acknowledge my creative side. He would test out his creations on my Brother & I as children. He was actually one of the first people to help design and illustrate a children's geography book 'My First Atlas', which was published & used in schools up and down the UK.
My Grandad was Scottish and his personal arms colours are a combination of black, dark navy blues & greens. Coincidentally my absolute favourite colours.
The Scottish flower is a thistle, fitting perfectly with my colour scheme! You will see the thistle pop up in almost every image of the products, along with many other botanical plants such as, Lavender, Eucalyptus & Pine. 
You're now asking yourself, what on earth does your Grandad have to do with with candles! As you can tell my Daa, had a huge impact in my life and taught me lots of very interesting things from a very young age, one of those being Aromatherapy. I believe that scent memory is a huge thing. A specific smell can take you back to a memory and nothing else can replace that memory. It is impossible to break that connection between emotional feeling and a memory scent.
When younger and starting the beginnings of a cold, without fail my Grandad would get out the Aromatherapy burner and add a controlled amount of each different essential oils. In the morning as if by magic, I would wake up feeling completely refreshed had an amazing nights sleep and with no symptoms of a cold what so ever! I aim to recreate certain scents, that remind us of an enjoyable time or a specific special someone whilst incorporating Aromatherapy. The natural healing powers of pure essential oils. 
Racing ahead with all my extensive research, literally day and night till crazy hours in the morning, keeping myself up at night unable to switch off, finding and sourcing the many suppliers that supported my visions, ruthless testing on different fragrances, essential oils, waxes, blends of waxes, styles of candle jars & containers, to cotton cord wicks and wooden crackle wicks in the shape of an S.. the list goes on..
Eventually with the help of friends & acquaintances, whom I am forever grateful for, the brand Jarandles has landed! I hope you love the products just as much as I do! My not so little Jarandles inspiration story!''
