Reed Diffusers and how to get the best out of them...

What are reed diffusers and how do they work? Reed diffusers are extremely popular in home fragrance right now. They are very simple to use; reeds are inserted into a glass bottle or glass jar of scented diffuser oil, the reeds soak up the scent and emit a pleasant aroma around your home - easy! Unlike candles, reed diffusers are flame free and do not require any heat. They disperse scent into the air naturally. No flame means no soot and more importantly, no risk of fire! This makes reed diffusers a more practical scent solution for some homes. What reeds do we use in our diffusers? We use ‘Porex eReeds’ which are innovatively designed for a high-performance fragrance throw as the...

Happy Birthday to us!

In May 2015 we opened the doors of Buth Bheag Candle Co. When we started pouring candles on our kitchen table, little did we know how much would happen in the 2 years to follow!

What a night!!

Buth Bheag Candle Co attended the Scottish Rural Awards 2017 this week and wow…what an amazing event! We were lucky enough to be finalists in our category (Business Start Up) and although we didn’t win, our night couldn’t have been better.

Update!!

Hello!! !t’s been a little while since we’ve posted a blog so thought we would give you all a wee update on what we’ve been getting up to. There was our launch of the limited edition Andy Murray No.1 Candle in celebration of the Tennis Star being ranked number one in the world in his sport. We had an outstanding response to these (even Judy Murray herself received one!!) and they were sold out in no time, but that probably shouldn’t have been too much of a shock to us given the massive size of Andy’s fan base!   We had the hectic festive season which included the launch of our hugely popular Cranberry Christmas range, which were being snapped...
