From soothing bathtub sessions to romantic dinners, where would we be without vibey candles brightening up our lives? In fact, we could wax lyrical about them for hours (okay, sorry).
But did you know that a Glasgow factory has been pouring and moulding waxy wonders for an amazing 122 years?
With today’s Big Deal on a tour for two at Shearer Candles, you will learn the secrets of their craft and even make your own souvenir to take home with you.
Peek behind the scenes at Shearer
On this tour, two people will learn about production techniques perfected for over a century as the expert team craft luxury candles from molten wax.
You will find out exactly how heavenly candles like Red Red Rose, Topical Watermelon and Amber Noir are made, while watching specialist machinery in action.
You will also learn about the factory’s history, plus get the insider secrets of fragrance, wax, wicks and vessels.
Finally, you will get to pour your own candle to take home with you as a souvenir.
Enjoy a day out with a difference
Shearer Candles is in Govan, which is easily accessed by car and bus, and is a short walk from the underground. Group tours take place from Monday to Thursday and last around an hour.
After your tour, you can browse the shop for luxury scented candles, diffusers and other accessories.
This offer is available until the end of September.
