Our Story

Handmade Scottish-Inspired Scents for the Home


I came to live in Scotland in the early 1990's and was instantly captivated by the wild and beautiful landscape of my new home. The wonderful sense of endless space, combined with a stark beauty gives me a feeling of the elemental force of nature in all its beauty and power.


Scotland has true seasons and each has its own special character. In establishing Wilderness at Heart and creating our own range of Scottish home scents, we wanted to capture the real essence of this unique country and bring the spirit of the Scottish landscape indoors, by creating a collection of candles, soaps and home fragrances that really do reflect the wonders of this special place. 


We at Wilderness at Heart are artisan candle makers - our natural wax candles are made with the best quality ingredients and lovingly hand-poured and crafted, with many wonderful extracts and essential oils to create harmonious scents for your home. The range also includes vegetable-based soaps and room diffusers all handmade using the highest quality ingredients. We now offer an amazing hand cream too!


The fragrances used in our collection are created to reflect the true character of Scotland and are inspired by many elements that you can find in this fabulous, wild landscape. Every product is carefully handmade in Scotland to our own special recipes so that you can have your own little piece of Wilderness in your Heart and Home.
