About Us

Loamalicious was born from a passion of the outdoors, riding singletrack, walking through forests, hiking trails, and climbing mountains.

Taking inspiration from the beautiful surroundings of the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley, a gap in the market was spotted. Naomi was searching for the perfect gift for a friend who loved mountain biking, the great outdoors, ‘nice things’ and homeware - but struggling to find anything that ticked such a unique selection of boxes.

After a bit of brainstorming and lots of hiking and mountain biking in the Forest of Dean, the concept of combining a few favourite things suddenly made sense. Mountain Biking - Walking - Forest Trails - Candles…

From there, the idea grew and she got a little bit overexcited, as we all do (quite often, actually!). She has developed scents that remind us of those moments when we take a moment to stop, appreciate what is around us, and how grateful we are for the forest.

The candles are created with nature & natural ingredients in mind. Using a soy wax, and natural cotton wick, the packaging is also recyclable. The jars are amber glass so can be upcycled, recycled or reloved into something else after their 30+ hour burn time is up.

Naomi and her family own The Speech House Hotel, situated in the heart of the Forest of Dean, where you can get free local pick up of the orders from. Outside of this, she spends every moment possible on her bike, walking in the Forest, or making candles.

Naomi is also very involved in the local mountain biking community in the Forest of Dean, and loves giving something back to the trails through being Chair of the Dean Trail Volunteers. DTV look after essential maintenance on the Blue, Red and Downhill Trails, as well as building and developing new trails at the Forest of Dean Cycle Centre.
