Our Story

Homebodies was started in October 2020 mid pandemic like a lot of other small businesses. However it had been bubbling around in my brain for quite sometime and I had to do a lot of planning, testing, making and failing to be able to put out the end product. Creating homebodies was more than a side hustle it was something to get out of bed for, to practice calm and the act of candle making really helped with coping with the struggles life can throw at you.

Homebodies is about celebrating the area you are from/live in or have a connection to as well as creating peaceful moments that lighting a candle can gift you.

Candle Jar Recycle Scheme

It's really important to always find ways to minimise waste thats why we are introducing our candle jar recycle scheme. If you return a jar once its finished, you will receive £3 off your next order. At the moment we can only do this for in person/collection orders.


When starting Homebodies I knew I wanted to make sure that the product was sustainable and that it brings joy to the customer. This is the top influence of my decision making process. I have swapped out things like plastic packing for sustainable options. Our Candles are all vegan friendly in every aspect even down to the labels. We are also taking part in a carbon offset scheme to help balance out the the carbon used for shipping.
