New Essex home fragrance business launches

candle and wax melts displayed with a vase of flowers Founded by sisters Farai and Tafadzwa, Rugare Candle Company was born out of their love for home scents and their Christian faith.

"The word 'rugare' has a two-fold meaning in Shona, our native language; it means both to be blessed and to live well," shares cofounder Tafadzwa. "This is everything our products embody and hopefully will inspire in your life. Our soy candles and waxmelts are an ode to the seasons of life where wisdom, growth and serenity are found."

The new collection of candles and wax melts make for the perfect big-day wedding gifts, which can be adorned with bespoke labels either for the happy couple, or from the newlyweds to their guests. The company offers a huge discount when buying in bulk – perfect for weddings – as well as packages which can be tailored to the celebrants.

"Through the trials and triumphs, we have always chosen to look for the blessings and to learn from the lessons. We want to inspire others to also celebrate every season life presents as this is the very essence of Rugare," adds Tafadzwa. "As you light our hand-poured products, we hope you find this perspective too and reflect on your life's journey and to see how wisdom, growth and serenity have unfolded on the pages of your wedding story."

Candles start from £15, wax melts start from £5, check out
