Merry Xmas everyone!

Cannot believe xmas is so close. Just made a lovely new batch of perfectly formed Bluebell and Lavender soap today. Only 12 bars, with poppy seeds, lovingly handmade. My house smells heavenly, can’t wait for them to cure! Thanks also to the ladies of Tytherington golf club for buying up all of my last batches of tea cup candles. Too delicate to send by mail order. Lots of new candles and soaps to make over xmas and New Year.

To all my customers, thanks for your support in my first year, enjoy your candles and soaps and have a fabulous xmas!


Sunday evening update

Hello all, and what a fabulous week! Many thanks to all who came along to Prestbury Xmas market on the 9th Dec! Big thanks to my good friend Ruth, chief wrapper upper, who helped me out on my stall, big style. I wouldn’t have coped otherwise. And thanks also to Richard of for letting me share his Gazebo! Check out his amazing digital prints, they are awesome!!! And most importantly thanks to Cath at Romulus for keeping us warm with lots of mulled wine. Absolutely needed with the temperatures plummeting!

Hope everyone is loving their soaps and candles, or wrapping them up for stocking fillers!

Love Gillian at Verula

Hello world!

Welcome to my site everyone!! How amazing, now everything is launched! All my hours of bopping away in the kitchen listening to Beyonce, whilst making soaps or candles is now worth it!

I can start sharing my gifts with you all, and hopefully you will enjoy them as much as I enjoy making them. All my homemade candles and soaps are made in lovely Cheshire, by me, with lots of love!

As a starter why not try my Lilac and Lavender candle, gorgeous to smell and utterly soothing and floral! Or try my votives, they look so pretty when lit in clumps of three.

So have a try and see what you think

Lots of Love
