Welcome to whatacandle.co.uk, home of beautiful handmade candles
Candles have been used since before recorded time to create light in darkness in every ancient civilisation. As man developed, candle was used to tell the time and became an essential item. They were thought to have mystical qualities and are used to this day in rituals and ceremonies throughout the world.
However, candles are currently used primarily for their aesthetic value and aroma. They are the final decorative touch that can add colour and scent in a room during the day and at night, when lit, candles create a soft, warm or romantic ambiance, with the mysterious beauty of a flickering flame and intriguing shadows dancing on your walls.
