Wood Coastal Candle was inspired by a hot day during the heatwave of 2018, when Laura was playing beach badminton with her daughters on Gullane beach. It dawned on her that she should create a coastal candle range. A collection that reflected the scents that she could smell on the coast of East Lothian where she lives.
The beach is an integral part of Laura’s life and she vows to not live by the sea, ever again, having grown up inland. Her girls have also grown up, barefoot and carefree on beaches in New Zealand and Gullane, Scotland. Beach fires for roasting marshmallows and cooking sausage sizzles have made lasting childhood memories. Simple and slow living – a lifestyle Laura knows and loves so well.
Gullane Beach Fire | Laura Thomas
Laura’s inspiration behind the scent of her wood coastal candle was of the lush abundance of wood and smoke. The scent of a campfire that taps into our primal instincts.
All Laura’s candle ranges are made in house in the LT workshop in North Berwick. Loving handmade and hand-poured wood coastal candle will transport you to a roaring campfire on a deserted beach. Wood has hints of sandalwood, cedarwood, cinnamon, and bergamot. It is woody and smokey, yet delicate and gentle with scents of bergamot and cinnamon.
This candle is neither too masculine nor feminine. It has carefully crafted to represent the wood and smoke of a fire but also the warmth and comfort that an open fire offers.
It’s Laura’s personal favourite of the range.

Camp Fires on beaches in Scotland is not illegal however there is responsible access code to adhere to:
If you do wish to light an open fire, keep it small, under control, and supervised – fires that get out of control can cause major damage, for which you might be liable.
Never light an open fire during prolonged dry periods or in areas such as forests, woods, farmland or on peaty ground or near to buildings or in cultural heritage sites where damage can be easily caused.
Remove all traces of an open fire before you leave.
While on the beach make sure you pour cold water over the fire to cool the embers and be sure to cover it completely in sand.
