The family at Saorsa Candles was one of our favorite new connections we made over the holiday season. Owner Cara and her father Bren craft some of the best Scottish-inspired candles, soaps and balms we’ve ever enjoyed. The scents are natural, the ingredients are pure and the results are amazing.
We bought several candles (and Jeff loaded up on lip balm). Then, our family loved them as Christmas gifts. So, we took the next logical step and teamed up with Cara and Bren on a line of custom candles you’ll only find at County Argyle.
Hand poured in small batches by the Saorsa team (soarsa is a Scots Gaelic word for freedom or liberty), each of our custom candles uses only high-quality ingredients that you can feel confident and comfortable burning in your space. Cara makes the entire collection from 100% soy wax with phthalate-free, Cali Prop65 compliant fragrances and lead-free cotton wicks.
Our First Scottish Candle Collection
The Madainn Candle — the name is Scottish Gaelic for morning — is like a sunrise over the heath. The Madainn is lush, bright and clean with natural oils blended with notes of mountain pine and Highlands spring water.
The Haggis Spice Candle is as traditionally Scottish as the Burn’s Night feast. Filled with Winter spices, our candle version of this annual tradition beautifully blends Scottish cardamom with ginger and black pepper.
The Faerie Glen Candle features a rich, woodlands-inspired fragrance. This earthy, natural blend of petrichor, moss and subtle florals has an unexpected depth.
The Hogmanay Candle recalls a traditional Yule celebration, filled with family, libations and good cheer. Undertones of white birch round out the whisky and toffee for a rich, cozy aroma.
Our first four Scottish-inspired candle are almost ready for delivery. Drop by our events this Spring and pick your favorite.
