Candle Jar | The Home of Scottish Candle Makers

The heavenly aroma of lemongrass and lavender were escaping through my package from Candle Jar before I had even opened it. I find the smell of lavender instantly calming, I think it’s because it reminds me of the pillow spray I drench my bedsheets in every night. Candle Jar showcases the best…

Safety 1st | Bath Time Essentials for Your Newborn

Giving a newborn a bath can be very stressful. Poppy is 5-weeks-old and still very tiny and fragile. Bathing her is a two-man job because she hates the water so is very wriggly, incredibly slippery and always ends up scratching her wee face as soon as her mittens are removed. I also…
