“Shmood - used to describe a relatable mood”

Hello! I’m Sophie, the crazy candle lady behind Shmood.

This journey began when my final year of university came to an abrupt end due to lockdown 1.0. I had candles lit in my room to help me feel more settled but I began to notice that harmful chemicals were used to make many shop-bought candles. As a student I couldn’t afford the natural, handmade alternatives so decided to try candle making myself and well, here we are.

Every Shmood product is handmade by me in the Lake District using only the cleanest materials possible; sustainably sourced soy wax, pure essential oils and non-bleached cotton wicks, all sourced from UK suppliers.

Our candle scents are specifically designed to help naturally boost your well-being through the power of aromatherapy. For every candle you purchase, we donate 50p to Mind which helps ensure no one faces mental health issues alone.
So I hope you will join me on this candle journey and enjoy using our products knowing that they are ethically made with love. Shmood candles are good for you, good for our planet and I hope you love them as much as I do.


Welcome to the family
