Hello! My name is Kate and welcome to my website and business, centred around my kitchen in Anstruther, in the picturesque East Neuk of Fife.

Candles and scent are a passion of mine and over the last year I have turned my hobby into a small business I can run from home whilst I work for my husband’s fish business and look after our dog, Fergus.   

Why candles you ask? Candles have long been a source of comfort and relaxation, with the gentle glow and flicker of the flame pacifying the senses; generating a sense of well-being. Scented candles can also be beneficial while practicing yoga, meditation etc.

Candles also have the ability to change the atmosphere of a room, transforming a dinner party, bath-time, or any time to promote a perfect ambience.  Scented candles also give your room a sense of style, each scent sparking  a different mood.

 Place the candle, light, sit back and enjoy!


Create The Perfect Atmosphere

With My Hand-Made Candles

Live as intensely as possible, burn your candle of life from both ends. – Osho

Choose your scent

Choosing your go-to scent is like having good friends: each one is very different, but you love each one in a different and individual way and choosing scent is the same; gather your own exclusive scents for every occasion. 

I have curated 6 scents so far, but I am always looking to refresh or change these so your thoughts on your favourite scents are always appreciated. I’m currently testing Black Fig and Vetiver for late Spring/early Summer, and I hope to introduce a further coastal scent by then, too. I’ll keep you posted.

I love to get feedback from you and it makes me feel more connected to exactly what you, my customer, really wants, so please leave me a review or DM me with your thoughts.  I would very much appreciate this in order to expand my library of scents.   Running a small business is a constantly evolving process and you are at the heart of this.

All candles are made with 100% vegetable (soy) wax.  I use premium fragrance oils that comply with all relevant, strict regulations and none are tested on animals.

All jars can be washed and re-used around the home, if desired, or can be recycled. All jars can be returned to me for a refill at a reduced price (if you live in the Anstruther area for pick-up).

Please burn your chosen candle for at least 2 hours for the first burn to create a complete melted wax pool. This prevents tunnelling and lengthens the life of your candle. Do not burn your candles for more than 4 hours. Always trim the wick to 5mm after each burn.  Always burn your candle on a flat, draught-free surface and never leave a candle unattended.

A great brand. I bought 2 large candles as gifts for family which they loved. Really pretty packaging with lovely scents. I will definitely have to buy one for myself.

I've bought candles from here as gifts for friends and have

received them as gifts myself. The aromas are
beautiful, the packaging is very pretty and the service
was great.
If you're looking for a gift for someone or just treating
yourself, I'd recommend The Pouring Room every
