About Us

"If you do what you love you'll never work a day in your life"

I took what Mark Anthony said to heart and in late 2017 an idea was born, to bring my love for candles together with my love for Scotland. My goal is to create an on-line store that showcases the best of Scotland's candle makers both large and small.

With a such a small population, I am always amazed at the diversity of products manufactured in Scotland and was surprised to find out how many candle makers there are on this little area of land.  I have been lucky enough to visit many places in my home country and each area has its own unique qualities which I think become part of the candle itself. 

As well as on-line, I will also be taking the 'show on the road' as they say, visiting local businesses and markets, so keep an eye on social media and come along.  If you live further a field then be assured that all the good stuff will be available on-line first, so you won't miss out.

Candle Jar is a work in progress and I will be adding other brands as I continue in my search for unique and quality products, so make sure you check back regularly.

Enjoy browsing and I would love any feedback on purchases you make. Thank you for joining me on this journey,

Isla Macaulay
