Braidwood Candle Company

Our Story

Founded in 2020, Braidwood Candle Company is an artisan home fragrance company based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Starting with a fascination of the link between scent, memory, and emotion, we were inspired to create products that evoked that sense of nostalgia or create new memories for years to come. 

As a young company, we are working to provide the highest quality home fragrance products from candles, wax melts, room diffusers, and more. As we release new products, we aim to hold people and plant the heart of what we do. 

Our goal is to provide a fragrance destination that brings you home.


We use a combination of traditional, artisan methods so each product is made with a personal touch. 

All of our products are handmade using traditional techniques and poured in small batches. Using only the highest quality ingredients, we create safe, affordable, and long-lasting home fragrances to fill your home with a unique aromatic experience. 




We create our own unique blends of wax and fragrance to achieve a mix that gives superior performance, consistency, and fills your room with long-lasting aroma.

Our unique blend of mineral and vegetable waxes used is of a ‘food grade’ quality (but please don’t attempt to eat them!), similar to the wax found on cheese, and does not contain any animal products. 

With the aim of supporting our local community and reducing our carbon footprint, we try to source as many of our materials from within the UK. 


We believe candle making is a science, as much as it is an art form. All of our products undergo a rigorous testing process to ensure that each one is crafted to the highest standard of safety and quality. 




Our company’s foundation is built on our values, which distinguish us and guide our actions. We continuously strive to improve, innovate and nurture, in order to grow as a business. We hold people and planet at the heart of everything we do and believe in building the best product while maintaining social and environmental responsibility.  

HEAD: We strive for excellence. We only create something worth creating. We are grounded in tradition and driven by ambition. 

HEART: We care for each other, our customers, and our communities. We understand empathy makes us stronger.  

SOUL: We are a culture of warmth and belonging. We turn houses into homes, starting from within.
