About Us


A warm welcome to Sweet Aroma’s. My name is Jim Laver and I am the founder, owner and craftsman here at Sweet Aroma’s. It was founded back in 2012 a few years after I suffered a debilitating stroke in 2008. The photo was taken of me when I was in Watertown in New York State, USA.  The wolf enclosure that I am near holds the pack that I am a co-sponsor with along with my daughter Myrtle.

I started to make Soy Wax Candles as a means of helping me adjust to my now changed life. I had made candles before after my mother gave me her old candle making kit.

I found that i quite enjoyed it back then but other things in my life took priority over it and my enjoyment of candle making got put on hold. I have always been quite crafty and i made little village buildings such as thatched cottages, shops and churches out of a plaster of paris mould kit which i painted by hand.

When my partner at the time suggested making candles from Soy Wax I jumped at the idea. Since then, Sweet Aroma’s has grown into a customer focused business making high quality candles and melts. I also founded Sweet Aroma’s Australia which is manged by my close friend Michele. 

All our products are created by hand and we are proud to say that everything we produce is made from quality ingredients. With my wife Kelly we are expanding our aromatic range to include Reed Diffusers and Room/Linen Sprays.

If you are looking for something unusual or different, you have come to the right place so please feel free to browse our shop on here. We are always adding new products as we develop them.

If you are looking for something that we do not make or you have have a particular fragrance in mind that you would like and we cannot make it then we will endeavour to find it or find some-one who will be able to create it for you.
