The Falls Spa candles enjoy the sweet scent of success

Just last month, we launched our exclusive Falls Spa candle which is a collaboration with local company Fellside Candle Co to allow guests to take the relaxation home.

After spotting the local company on Instagram, we contacted Fellside Candle Co to and asked candlemaker Gail Hailes to create an exclusive candle for The Falls Spa near Keswick.

The candles went down so well with guests and completely sold out within days, so much so that a third order has actually just been placed!

“We’re so pleased with the response from guests to our Falls Spa candles. The first batch we ordered sold out far more quickly than we had anticipated. For a while, I’ve been wanting to create some bespoke items to retail in The Falls Spa for our guests to take home as a memento of their visit or as a gift to friends and family. It’s great to be up and running with the first product. I’m very happy with the results. The smell definitely transports you into a spa treatment room; it’s very relaxing with some lovely fresh undertones.” – Dani Hope, Director of Lake District Hotels

We are now looking at launching a Christmas candle over the festive season as we decide on a scent so keep your eyes peeled for future updates!

About Fellside Candle Co

One of the most important factors we had in mind when choosing to work with Fellside Candle Co was the sustainable nature of their products. The wax used is non-toxic and the candle pots are also made from sustainable materials.

Fellside Candle Co is based only 18 miles away which is owned and operated by Gail Hailes, who creates her candles in a hut on Mosser Fell near the family farm on the outskirts of Cockermouth.

Gail started the business last October after deciding she wanted to turn her passion into something more tangible. From her hut, Gail creates fragrances and candles for her signature Fellside range, whilst working on special projects and commissions for other businesses.

The Falls Spa candle

The Falls Spa candle was created to evoke the feelings of deep relaxation that spending time at the award-winning spa brings.

The candle’s scent has top notes of pine, eucalyptus, thyme and sea salt and is followed by a floral heart of rose, lily, jasmine and lilac. The candle has a wooden wick and the pot is made from jesmonite, a sustainable, non-toxic material.

Every candle comes with a plantable label that is impregnated with seeds – so once the candle has burned, fresh life is breathed into the pot as it takes on a new meaning.

The candles, which burn for 50-plus hours, are £24 each and would make wonderful Christmas gifts. They are available exclusively from The Falls Spa.
