5 hand poured Irish candles to give you a well deserved break from Yankee
Fancy a new candle? Make it Irish.
Candles are a decent addition to any room, but when choosing which stunning scent to add to your home next, why not buy hand poured, buy unique, and most importantly, buy Irish?
Here are five gorgeous candles from Irish companies that would be a great shout and great addition to any home.
1. The Handmade Soap Company

Primarily known for their soaps, creams, and body lotions, the brand also boast a gorgeous collection of soy candles with scents you'd be hard pressed finding anywhere else. If you're looking, may we recommend the Bergamot & Eucalyptus candle - it's the best of all thing floral and spice.
The Handmade Soap Company also recently launched their new 'Anam' collection, a range of stunning essential oils, lotions, and hand washes reminiscent of long summer nights. The Anam candle is particularly special too, and with a Coriander Seed, Geranium and Vetiver scent, chances of you getting sick of it are very, very low.

A personal favourite here as this author has enjoyed a crackling soy candle from HOME in her bedroom for months now, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint.
These candles are made with soy wax in a glossy black jar with a lid and a crackling wooden wick. They're a little more pricy than other candles in this piece, but they last longer and are a perfect centre-piece in any room.
The HOME gals have got a lot of gorgeous scents on offer, but one of the most intriguing has to be their peat candle that smells like, you guessed it, peat.
