During the dreaded third lockdown Sarah decided to embark on a new venture – Vintage Candles @ The Priory.

Watch this space!!! Research is currently ongoing to learn the art of candles and associated goodies – diffusers, wax melts, bath melts and bath oils.

I’m digging out some of the family silver and my collection of perfume bottles to launch a range of beautiful diffusers using these antique/vintage bottles and candles made in old upcycled items.

Many items such as old pressed glass jugs can be used to hold a scented candle and then used again afterwards for those make up brushes, stencil brushes, teaspoons etc. Silver milk jugs and sugar bowls upcycled to add a little sparkle and scent to your lives.

Currently I’m creating a base of scents that can be used across the range and they will be able to be sampled during your stay at The Priory and available for you to purchase and take home with you for yourself to enjoy or as a bespoke present for that special person.

One of the fragrances I’m looking at is called ‘Cuddles’ which used to be the nickname of my sister – so hoping to use this one in the jugs – called ‘Hug in a Jug’……
