About Us

"Of the five senses, smell is the one with the best memory."

Meet AfterBurnCandles creator, Ruth Clements. 

Northern Irish raised, London based, Ruth has blended her passion of creating handmade candles, with her fondness of the natural world around us.
After the first UK lockdown due to the covid-19 virus, Ruth decided that she and others would need stress relief and she began her candle-making journey to occupy her time and relieve the stress of being stuck indoors. She wanted to share the theraputic effects of burning scented candles so decided to make all of her products scented.
She is an avid supporter of multiple charities and wanted her new business to help raise awareness and support the various charities that she donated to. That's why each of our collections donates 10% of its profits to a designated chrity at the end of each month. For more information email us at info@afterburncandles.com.
