Essence of Harris is heading across the Atlantic!

 Introducing Essence of Harris products into the US market has always been a huge aspiration for the team here on Harris, and after a lot of hard work and countless hours spent researching the best possible route to take- we’re on our way to bringing a little piece of the Hebrides ‘across the pond’!  With a suitcase packed full of scented treats, Jamie will spend the next two weeks exploring North and South Carolina, and Atlanta, Georgia, as he finalises plans for Essence of Harris’ move to the US.

Welcome to our new Essence of Harris factory!

With the arrival of spring comes the arrival of new life on the island. As a sea of yellow daffodils burst through the soil, stretching out to the welcome sunshine, and new-born lambs prance around the fresh green fields, nothing could signify fresh beginnings more warmly than the start of spring. And at Essence of Harris, we found meaning in the new life of spring with the move into a brand new factory.  After months of preparation and paperwork, and having finally settled on a date to begin work, we decided to conduct a ‘Spring Clean’ on a very different...

Buth Bheag Candle Co have been hand-pouring our candles, reed diffusers and wax melts for over two years and we’re really proud to say that we’ve grown from our humble beginnings to now work with 33 stockists and run two of our own shops.

Happy Birthday to us!

Happy Birthday to us!

In May 2015 we opened the doors of Buth Bheag Candle Co. When we started pouring candles on our kitchen table, little did we know how much would happen in the 2 years to follow! We have come so far in such a short space of time and it all comes down to the continued support of our customers, which is why we are making our Birthday a day for all of YOU to remember.... Every customer who purchases a Buth Bheag product between the 18th of May (Thurs) and 20th May (Sat) - in either of our Buth Bheag shops, online or...

Seilebost

Seilebost

Seilebost is the next candle in our range that we would like to mention. It has always been our most popular scent. Sophisticated, deep and sensual, with top notes of pomegranate, plum and rose, it is available in a wide range of products - single wicks, crackle wicks, diffusers, melts, room sprays etc. However, we are always working on ways in which we can incorporate our customers' favourite scents into new products and we have some really exciting plans for Seilebost, so for the die-hard fans of this scent it is definitely worth keeping an ear/eye/nose out for Seilebost news...
