A simple act of kindness

A true story....

At about 8 months pregnant, and having had some devastating news, I sat crying quietly in a corner of the train station coffee shop. 

A woman, with a kind smile, tapped me on the shoulder and gave me a huge cup of hot chocolate and proceeded to embrace me in a giant bear hug. She didn't ask what was wrong, simply told me that everything would be a little brighter tomorrow. Her name was Lara Quin.

It's amazing how such a simple act of kindness could really lift someone's spirits and i've never forgotten her. 

So wherever you are in the world Lara Quin, thank you. This one's for you. x 


All LARA QUIN Soy Candles are hand poured in our small studio in England. We are not a giant corporate brand, but a friendly bunch, so do get in touch if you have any questions:)

As you've probably guessed, we love Gemstones. The healing powers of Gemstones are well documented, but for me, it's an inner peace I feel to have them around. Rose Quartz bouncing off lots of love, a little Smoky Quartz by my bed to help me sleep and Crystal Quartz when I need to clear my mind. 

The essence we gather comes from a lengthy process of energising the stones from sunrise to moonlight. It's a labour of love. But one I wouldn't be without. The essence is then blended with our stunning scents to make your finished candle not only smell beautiful, but give a little love and happiness in the process:)

We hope you enjoy your LARA QUIN candle as much as we did making it. x
