I've always thought there was something special about candlelight, it creates an ambiance whether relaxing on a winters evening, creating a chilled out atmosphere with friends or simply enjoying your favourite scent. Thats why I was inspired to learn the art of candle making and start creating my own home scents and share my favourites with you.

I'm originally from Scotland but settled in Warwickshire where I live with my family and Ruby our black lab, but my celtic roots have never been far from my heart as you can see in my logo! The name Brown is a tribute to my Mother's maiden name and Drury is my family name.

After working as an international buyer for an accessories company for 15 years the time was right to branch out on my own and create something I was passionate about and somewhere I could channel my creative flair - Brown & Drury.

All the candles and diffusers are made with love and care from my studio at home and without the use of additives or animal products. The thing I love about my work is that I don't have to use my car to travel to work - something I do not miss. Very often you will find me at the Aga pouring batches of candles - you don’t get much more artisan than that!

Only 100% natural soy wax is used to make the candles combined with high quality fragrances and essential oils. I have expressed my love of natural materials -  from the wax -  to the English Oak candle boards - to the recycled craft packaging - all selected with care and attention.

Its great to meet you, I hope you enjoy.
