Olsten was started in lockdown 2020 as a small business with the desire to make quality sustainable products. It was born out of a passion for great smelling candles, and occasional disappointment at the quality and eco-credentials of the candles already on the market.
Each candle is made from soy wax, which is responsibly sourced and eco-friendly. All packaging is recycled and recyclable.
Last year we added a lovely range of ceramics, hand made by my very own Auntie Pam! They include coasters, tealight holders and outdoor pots.
As a busy mum of three, Olsten is my escape, my passion and small business waiting to make it big when the kids start school! The name Olsten is a combination of my two boys names - Oliver and Osten. I've since had baby Heidi, so who knows how I will make her name fit.
Thank you for reading this far - and thank you for supporting Olsten.
