Introducing Lough Neagh Dusk Candle: Light Up Hope and Make a Difference

The winter season is upon us, and with it comes the warm embrace of cosy candles, filling our homes with a sense of serenity. In the spirit of the season, we are excited to introduce the winter edition of our Lough Neagh candle range.

This candle is more than just a scented delight; it carries with it a story of hope, inclusivity, and a commitment to our planet.

About the Lough Neagh Dusk Candle

Lough Neagh Dusk, a candle that embodies the essence of the evening sky over the tranquil Lough Neagh linked with other gorgeous NI landmarks, offers a unique and enchanting experience. The blend of citrus top notes, delicate jasmine, velvety amber, and the comforting aroma of dry cedarwood creates a scent that captures the magic of dusk in the heart of nature.

But, there's much more to this candle than meets the nose.

Handcrafted with Heart: Acorn and Bolster Community

Our Lough Neagh Dusk candles are not just any ordinary candles. Each one is meticulously handcrafted with care and dedication by a remarkable team of young adults with mixed abilities at Acorn and Bolster Community. This commitment to inclusivity and giving opportunities to all members of our community is what sets our candles apart.

Artistry Meets Charity: Amira McDonagh's Touch

The Lough Neagh Dusk candle wouldn't be complete without its beautiful exterior. The artwork adorning our candles is a masterpiece by the talented local artist, Amira McDonagh. Her work not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the candle but also highlights the incredible talents within our community.

Candles that Give Back

Our commitment to making a positive impact doesn't stop with inclusivity and local artistry. For every Lough Neagh Dusk candle sold, we donate £1 to PIPS Suicide Prevention Ireland. This contribution goes towards supporting their vital work in helping those in need, shedding light on the importance of mental health and suicide prevention.

Additionally, we're dedicated to protecting our planet. To that end, £1 from each candle sale is donated to Friends of the Earth NI, an environmental charity. They are currently campaigning for the much needed protection of Lough Neagh, ensuring the preservation of this precious natural wonder for generations to come.

A People and Planet Approach

We're proud to say that our Lough Neagh Dusk candle takes a "people and planet" approach. It's not just a product; it's a symbol of unity, care, and sustainability. As we approach the festive season, we aim to support both these amazing charities to the best of our abilities, ensuring that the spirit of giving back shines bright.
