Brook & Shoals

Organic Candles and Body Range

Organic Candles and Body Range  €8.95 - €19.95

As a child it was a great aunt’s rose garden that first tickled the senses of Alison Banton of Brooke & Shoals. She and her dowager aunt used to gather rose petals, add them to water and leave overnight to “make perfume”. What Alison didn’t know is that her aunt used to secretly add perfume to the concoction to convince the girl that they had created magic.

The magic of scent has stayed with the former marketing manager of AIB and Irish Life. Eight years ago Alison opened a shop in the harbour town of Greystones selling her own range of scented candles blending the essential oils herself. To understand the basics she studied at the Grasse Institute of Perfumery. In the beginning she made and poured the wax for the candles too. But in 2010 when she scaled up the business and started to supply her products to other retailers, the increased demand meant she had to source additional Irish candle makers to help her make her soy wax candles.

In 2012 Brooke & Shoals launched an organic body range using seaweed extract and grapefruit and rose geranium - classic essential oils that help create a spa experience at home, Alison explains, more new products will be launched in 2013.
