Established in October 2019, Fire Nest is run by partners Will and Phoebe in the heart of Bedfordshire in the United Kingdom. We host a variety of Creative Workshops including Candle Making, Pottery, Bath Bomb Making and more.

Alongside our Workshops, we also offer a range of Wellness Hand-Crafted Products including Candles, Ceramics, Bath Bombs and Perfumes.

Both Phoebe and Will started making candles as a hobby alongside their full time jobs, however the passion quickly turned into an ever-growing empire. In their first year of business, they both went full time with the business, reached over 10k followers on Instagram, featured in Vogue magazine, shipped over 5,000 orders, and hosted hundreds of workshops and rented their own shop unit.

After hard work and dedication Fire Nest have products that are safer to burn and perform correctly. We always use sustainable ingredients which are free from phthalates, paraffin, palm, beeswax and synthetic adhesives. Better for your home, health and the environment.
