L Henderson Julie made me some triple wick candles which were fantastic for our big room. Since then however the reed diffusers - or smelly sticks as I like to call them - have come into stock. Love the Geranium with Bergamot and Lavender. Lemongrass & Lavender is delightful in the bedroom. Just put in yet another order....

J.Carberry Thank you for the beautiful candles! I purchased a few different scents for Mother's day gifts (as well as some for myself!) and they were well received. It was difficult to give them away as I really wanted to keep them for myself! Love the scents and the fantastic customer service! Will definitely be purchasing more. Thanks again.

Jules These are the nicest candles I have come across in a long time. I initially bought the Geranium and Bergamot and for a while didn't even burn it because the scent was so lovely..... but its even nicer when lit :-) I'm so glad I found The Melt Pool on line as I have now added the Patchouli and Ylang Ylang to my collection - and will be buying more! I have to commend Julie both for her product and her customer care - I highly recommend her candles both as gifts and personal use. Beware though - if you are buying as a gift.....get several as I can guarantee you won't want to give them away :-) Thanks so much Julie.

Norma Just want to add to my previous review of the Lemongrass and Lavender candle which is gorgeous. I have now tried the Peppermint, Lavender and Rosemary, and I must say, it also is absolutely gorgeous. Have just ordered some more, and will continue doing so. Thank you Julie for these lovely candles, and for the kind help you have shown me.

Mr Sinclair I have been purchasing some of your candles in the Hammerton store in Aberdeen. As a lover of candles I must congratulate you on such a refreshing candle. Great fragrances and the natural ingredients gives a cleaner, refreshing feel. The packaging and colours are great too.

Norma LEMONGRASS AND LAVENDER I bought this candle in the tin first to try, and have just ordered it in the medium glass jar size as it is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!! Thank you Julie for a wonderful candle. I have also ordered the Geranium and Bergamot to try.

Emma Long Thank you The Melt Pool for my beautiful candles. They smell lovely and burn very well, lasting a long time. I will definitely be making a return visit!

We are passionate about making luxury natural candles.
We make hand poured, soy wax candles scented with lots of the purest essential oils.
At The Melt Pool, we only make candles that we would be happy to buy ourselves.
We were weary of the mass produced, chemical filled candles that dominated the market and so we set to making
our own candles. Together with this and a love of Aromatherapy, The Melt Pool was born.
We are passionate about making eco-friendly candles from the best quality soy wax and purest essential
oils using recycled packaging wherever we can.
Our candles are made with love and are good for you and the environment.
Our family run business is based in Glasgow, Scotland.
