HAZEL & BLUE CANDLES
"I find inspiration from fresh flowers, blooms, botanicals, woods, spices and greenery - all those elements can create fresh, uplifting, warm and cosy scents for your home".
Meet Hazel & Blue creator, Becky Avery
New Zealand raised, Bath and Wiltshire based, Becky has blended her passion of creating beautiful handmade things with her love of nature and scent into her handcrafted products.
After pursuing a career in Nursing, working in both the NHS and Palliative Care, Becky rose to a Senior Management role, managing teams and creating clinical services before her love (obsession) of creative hobbies took over.
During this time she developed a love of making and creating, teaching herself how to sew, crochet and knit, which in turn, led to an unhealthy obsession of Mollie Makes magazine issues (she has the original first copy somewhere).
One summer when she was looking for an activity to do with her 9 year old daughter, she made her very first candle. Becky was hooked and her love of candle making grew. After much research and experimenting a business idea was hatched with Hazel & Blue being born.
Since starting Hazel & Blue in 2017, Becky has seen her nature inspired products sold all over the United Kingdom, Europe and as far as New Zealand.
Hazel & Blue has been featured in The Bath Life Magazine and she has appeared on BBC Radio Wiltshire as well as podcasts including 'There are other ways', Make it Happen and Small & Mighty Business. You can listen to this episode of the Small & Mighty Conversations podcast where she talks about her Hazel & Blue business journey.
Recent commissions include Google, Modus BPCM, Kara Leigh Ford Ceramics, Katie Robbins Ceramics, Etsy UK, Grape & Fig, Royal Mail and Kew Gardens.

We use 100% natural soy wax as it is natural, sustainable and clean burning in our candles and candle making kits.
