Sassenach Scents

Hi, I’m Maggie, the maker behind Sassenach Scents. I create beautiful, sustainable, hand-crafted, artisan candles, which perfectly represents the essence of the Scottish Highlands and its four seasons.

Having always had a creative streak in me, I've been crafting handmade candles for years. Being here in the Highlands, I found that the amazing flora that grows wildly throughout its breathtaking woodlands and landscape afforded me an opportunity to create unique, plant-based, naturally scented candles, that are not only safer for the environment and all of us individually, but are beautiful as well.

My passion and love for creating things ties in with my passion and love for the environment - nurturing it, protecting it, and respecting it. Creating and packaging is a zero-waste, plastic-free, fully sustainable, ethical and planet conscious process. In addition to the recycled glass containers, the process also includes using recycled/recyclable materials for packaging, labelling, and shipping; whilst sourcing natural, environmentally friendly, and biodegradable products/materials from local farmers and businesses here in Scotland.

This particular area in the Highlands - Rannoch - grabbed my heart and resonated with my soul when I first visited in 2008. There's something so very special about this area - so much beauty, tranquility and history here - it stirs something deep inside you. As you drive past Queen's View and make your way towards Rannoch, you feel as though time transcends and you're entering another world. To now be a part of this amazing country, to be living my dream here, is an incredible gift that I cherish.

Being surrounded by nature, wildlife, clean, fresh air and scenery that takes your breath away, I am extremely grateful that I get to live, work and create in this magical place and call it my home.
