00 - Florence Candle for our NHS
Like so many of you, I want to do my bit in these difficult, distressing times.
So, may I introduce Florence – a special new fragrant candle that I’ve created to help support our magnificent National Health Service.
As spring has arrived, I wanted to create something that is fresh, uplifting and inspiring … and believe that the positive notes of tangerine, grapefruit, bergamot, rosewood, rosemary and neroli create that atmosphere.
The name Florence conjures up many images relating to the NHS but also appropriately means …. to blossom, flower and flourish.
£5 from the sale of every candle will be donated to the NHS to help all those wonderful doctors, nurses, porters and cleaners – in fact everyone involved in the Service to help and protect us.
If you would like to include a personal message with your donation, please leave it in the notes section when placing your order, and I will be sure to pass it along. 🙂
With the sale of each Florence candle, donations will be sent to https://www.hospitalcharity.co.uk/appeal/staffsupport which is a specific appeal set up to help benefit the staff during Covid 19. These donations will help in assisting the frontline staff to access food and the welfare items that they need to keep going.
Also in a time of such turmoil, strife and stress, psychological support for our NHS is being organised through the charity, ensuring it is ready to provide any additional equipment and support that is most needed.
Thank you again for all of your help and support - we owe so much to these wonderful souls! ❤️
We have donated £1,386 (£27.80 processing fees) from the sale of our Florence candle.
Supporting our staff at this challenging time | Oxford Hospitals Charity Your support today will make a difference to the NHS staff working across our hospitals in Oxfordshire as they manage the COVID-19 crisis. It will help patients and their families who are directly affected. During this unprecedented time we want to ensure that we are there to support the well being of all those working so hard to look after our local community. Thank you.
This luxury candle is hand poured in England. Our perfect blend of 100% pure essential oils, natural cotton wick, and GM free soya wax ensure that you can enjoy the gorgeous aromatherapy fragrance for approximately 60 hours.
Your 300g candle comes in an attractive, translucent chocolate brown glass – beautifully presented within gorgeous, 100% recycled packaging.
Before each use to ensure a clean burn, trim your wick to between 1/8 and 1/4 inch.
What a fantastic way of helping. As community staff nurse we really appreciate all the little things that people have done for us over the last year, especially as 2020 has been the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife
Thank you Jackie for your very kind words, and for all of the hard work that you and your colleagues continue to do for us. xx
I had previously bought a Florence candle. My mother's name is Florence and she passed away on 30thJune. Two weeks ago my sister had to go into hospital for surgery. Instead of flowers, I ordered her a Florence candle. I thought this was better value for money than flowers, would last longer than flowers and the sentiment behind the name of the candle spoke many words that didn't need to be spoken. My sister was just delighted with the candle and said the smell is divine. I also said £5 was being donated to the NHS for every candle sent. She was thrilled to hear this as she said the care she received was outstanding.
Janet, thank you so much for your very kind words. I'm so touched that my candle could mean so much to you both.
Tha candle was a present for a friend and she was very pleased to receive it.
Thank you so much! Really happy to hear she's enjoying it!
I had seen the Florence candle in the Your Home magazine. My mother's name is Florence and she passed away in the early hours of Tuesday 30th June aged 94. I had been lighting a candle for her every day and thought it very apt when I saw the Florence candle. Unfortunately I didn't receive it before her passing. Living in Guernsey it can be very difficult to sometimes get goods sent here; although us locals never understand why as we are sometimes closer to the area than some parts of the UK. The quote for postage was extortionate but Rebecca corresponded with me in the most compassionate, caring and gentle way and with such lovely words and resolved the issue. My candle arrived and I could smell the fragrance before I'd opened the package- - wow. I will never forget Rebecca's kindness or dispose of the Florence candle holder and will put new candles in.
You have touched my heart Jan, and I am thankful and honoured to have been a part of this journey. Thank you, and stay safe and well xx
Not yet used the candle but it does smell rather lovely.Also bought 2 of the handmade soaps which also smell divine. Rebecca always adds a personal hand written message with your delivery which is very rare these days. Thank you Rebecca will be ordering again in the near future.
Thank you Jean. I hope you enjoy them all, and thank you for you wonderful custom!
