Candles by chance…and by design!
For Mags Ralston, the love of candle making came almost by accident. It was November 2016 when she responded to a local advert selling small jars, which she had planned to use for crafts. When Mags realised the seller was also offering their candle-making supplies, she bought them on the spot – and Taigh Dubh Candles was born (writes Katie Macleod).
“I had never made a candle before, but from the minute I started I absolutely loved it,” says Mags, whose business has been going from strength to strength through local support and word of mouth.
Created in her work shed at home in Point, the candles come in a range of scents, sizes, and styles, and can be found in community shops like Buth an Rubha, Cross Stores, and Ravenspoint, as well as at the Stornoway and Tarbert craft fairs. There are even plans to sell online in the coming months, too.
