Our Story

Born on our dining room table, Lumos Apothecary is made up of husband and wife team, Cathie and Tom. We both work full time in demanding jobs, meaning we don’t get much quality time together! Whenever the rare moments happen, we cosy up in front of the open fire, eat and drink something yummy and always, always light a scented candle. This got us thinking… maybe if we made our own we could eventually work for ourselves and enjoy much more ‘together time’. Founded in November 2019 after months of experimentation and testing to get our candles just right, we are excited to launch our range of luxury hand poured, 100% natural soy wax and cruelty free candles. Each one is made by hand in small batches…on our dining room table. We hope you love them as much as we do.
