At the precise point that the dream to be a writer was unfolding, a ‘carbon footprint’ test caught my attention. It was with delight that I did the test. However, the smug smile was wiped from my face when I assessed my paper usage. Zillions of trees falling to the ground crashed into my consciousness. I flinched at the thought of the thousands of litres of precious water needed to make the paper that would carry the words of all the untold stories I wanted to write. My heart sank: my enormous feet would tread carbon all over the planet.
The refusal to give up the dream gave rise to a new commitment: Candylwood would, wherever possible, choose the earth-friendly options. After much research, a range of handcrafted notebooks, lifestyle products and packaging was developed from natural, recycled or reused materials.
A signature scent, blended from six pure essential oils, Cape May, Rose Geranium, Lime, Lemon Verbena, Patchouli & Amyris, (from the Candlewood Tree), is in each product. The Candylwood aroma is special in its own unique way. It lifts the mind beyond the ordinary and inspires a yearning to be spectacular. The effect is delightfully uplifting.
Products made by hand have a different feel, in a similar way that vegetables eaten from the home garden taste different to those bought from the store. Perhaps the difference is in the touch of a hand or perhaps it stirs, however gently, a childhood memory of the handcrafted treasures in grandma’s old wooden chest. Whatever it is,this elusive quality is found in Candylwood’s handcrafted notebooks, soy & coconut candles, soaps, scented sprays, essential oils and ceramic burners.
Everything about Candylwood is intimate, and the products are crafted in the forests of the Crags in the Western Cape. Each product is packaged by hand with recycled paper and cellophane (biodegradable/made from maize). Our commitment is to be kind to the earth and, we will, no matter how inconvenient or expensive, choose the earth-friendly option.
Candylwood was inspired by a love of creating beautiful moments. It is for those moments in-between work and chores and obligations and commitments. It is for that precious hour when the demands of the day are behind you and you run a deep, fragrant bath; fill the room with candlelight and music; and immerse yourself in the uplifting, sensory magic of the moment.
Candylwood is a place for you to explore, to discover little treasures or to find a special gift. It is a place of personal meaning, of intimacy, of time that is yours alone to savour. We hope that you enjoy it, minute by delicious, beautiful, inspiring minute.
