"Obsessed with the Armagh candle, it smells amazing"
"Reminds me of home every time I light it"
"I ordered 4 for my mam and sisters as a little pick me up while we can't be together as a family and they all just love them"
My name is Laura Rahill and I am the proud owner of the Cuimhne Candles which was established in March of 2021.
I am a Physics and Biology teacher from County Louth. I have always enjoyed crafting and creating and loved taking part in art camps growing up where I learned the likes of candle making, basket weaving and ceramics. With the extra time I had during lockdown in Ireland I decided to revisit candle making. With a science degree under my belt, I had a better appreciation for the science behind candles and enjoyed the process of experimenting with different fragrances and waxes.
The very first Cuimhne Candle that I made was a gift to my brother in the states who was graduating from college. Due to the pandemic we could not travel to the US to celebrate together as a family, so I figured that by creating a County Louth candle, I could try and bring a piece of home to him. After receiving his gift, my brother insisted that I make more county candles, and the rest is history.
We are now stocked in over 30 stores nationwide, and even overseas in the UK and US. The journey so far has been incredible, and I cannot wait to see what the future holds.
Míle buíochas for your support.
