Lovingly Hand Made 100% Soy Wax and Essential Oils Candles.

Following a period of time using these beautifully scented candles within my beauty room in Tonbridge Kent, local business woman and Founder of The Tonbridge Candle company Sarah Cahalan and Karen Alexandra Beauty have collaborated further. I now offer the Tonbridge Candle Company candles for purchase here on line and also from within the treatment room.


Who better to describe the candles than Sarah Cahalan herself - Sarah's story:

'I started The Tonbridge Candle Co. after being made redundant from working in the charity sector. I’d worked managing prison and community drug services after a period of working as a police officer for over twenty years. I wallowed in self pity for a bit then to save my sanity I started to get creative. I have a love of dogs and candles.

I was surprised by how many candles emit nasty things into our home due to the type of wax and fragrances used. So I have created a range of candles that are all 100% Soy wax, which is from a sustainable source and is biodegradable.

The benefit of soy wax is it has a much slower burn so lasts longer. It emits little or no smoke and there are no nasty chemicals.

To create the scents I only use essential oils and all are vegan friendly and cruelty free.

Essential oils have an impact on mood and how we feel as well as giving off glorious scents.

I also only use cotton wicks with no lead in them and they create an even burn.

The power of scent is remarkable so I’ve created a range to help support the mind as well as triggering memories and positive emotions. I source the jars locally and use amber apothecary jars which create a glorious amber glow.

All come with lids to keep the candles dust free and clarity of scent.

Covid has been tough for everyone so this small company is my little piece of something positive from a difficult situation.'

Here at Karen Alexandra Beauty - I have taken the time to select a small range of candles that I use within my treatments, and my home. The candles that reflect the relaxing nature of my beauty treatments.

Each hand poured candle is 120ml in size.

The Tonbridge Candle Company only use Soy Wax from a sustainable/renewable source and essential oils to add fragrance. 

Soy produces 90% less soot than paraffin wax and does not emit any chemicals into your home. It has a clean burn leaving no soot on your home furnishings. It is also water soluble and easier to clean up if spilt! 

Soy is vegetable based therefore there are no known carcinogens released when burnt.

Soy burns for longer, burning 50% longer than paraffin wax. 

Soy has a lower melting point and therefore creates a pool which allows the essential oils to vaporise into your home.

An essential oil is a highly concentrated plant component, rather than an oil. They can be distilled from various parts of the plant, including leaves, flowers, fruits, woods and seeds.

Tips for best results. 

Each Candle has a typical burn time of approximately 20 hours.

On the first burn, burn for a minimum of 2 hours to create the ideal wax melt pool around the wick.

Place the candle on flat level surface for an even wax melt pool around the wick.

Don't place too close to a wall or ceiling.

Burn for a period of between 3 to 4 hours at a time.

Keep the wick trimmed to a length of 5mm - trim before lighting.

Remove excess wick from wax pool - when cooled.


We know you will love these candles. Pure, natural and full of relaxing aromatherapy essential oils.
