Riversdale Essence was born from my love of stories and memories. From a young age I loved playing in the countryside, and a passion for scent, nature and hand-crafted products.
The journey into candle making is a very personal one.  Following my involvement in an accident I sought solace from a burning candle as I recuperated at home.   I felt a lot of comfort and healing ambience from this and my creative passion was inspired further, I began to research, design and develop my own scents and ideas into carefully crafted candles.

Fragrance can trigger all manner of emotions and for me growing up, I have been lucky to experience many beautiful natural country fragrances in my life. Be it the fresh scent of the sea from the Atlantic coast to the secluded forest in Fermanagh (and the name behind the business) I decided to begin a journey of discovery on how I could create these scents using products both provided and made by nature alone. I was determined to develop products that would be ethical and sustainable to our environment.  I use only natural vegan wax and premium fragrance oils,  that offer a clean burn and are pet friendly.  I hope you love them as much as I do!!!
