Hi I’m Jen!

I’m the chief candle maker, photographer, fragrance guru, head order packer, lid brander, marketer and cleaning crew behind Bush Blend Candle Co. 

I grew up on a farming property in regional Victoria. My house was traditional weatherboard, lined with paper walls and an open fireplace in the kitchen. Most nights after school you’d find me sitting around the fire with a cup of tea in hand, watching the embers dancing their way above the flames. 

At the beginning of Bush Blend’s journey, my goal was to create distinctively fragrant candles which reflected the simplicity of a fireplace and my adoration for the Australian bush. The result, Bush Blend Candle Co. 

So what’s different about my candles? My wicks are made from a unique timber which crackles softly when it burns, much like an open fire. Every candle you burn has been thoughtfully attributed to a region or part of Australia – So if you’re hanging for a holiday up north or an escape down south, these candles can transport you there in a sniff!

In keeping in tune with my simplicity goal, I use 100% soy wax and quality ingredients sourced from local suppliers (coz supporting local is the only way to keep our economy rocking harder than AC/DC!). Oh and I’ve ditched all the artificial dyes, parabens and unnecessary additives to bring a more natural and wonderfully smelling candle into your home.

The wooden lids are pretty cool too! Every single one of them has been lightly sanded and branded by me, making each candle totally bespoke! 

So pour yourself a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy the magic of my candles.

Jen xx
