Hello, I’m John The Ampthill Alchemist,
I live in the beautiful Georgian market town of Ampthill with my husband and two little dogs.
Like many people, in the pandemic I was made redundant and whilst it was unfortunate, I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. Having worked in travel for such a long time (23 years), I’ve always wanted to do something more creative than sit behind a desk and so I decided to set up The Ampthill Alchemist, selling handmade home fragrances. One of the things that led me to decide on home fragrances is because I always have a candle burning and understand how much a scent changes the ambience of a space.
MY CORE PRINCIPLES
The quality of the products I produce and the ingredients that go into them are very important to me.
Every product that I make and sell is plant based, cruelty free and vegan friendly.
Don't just take my word for it, here's what my customers have to say...
The Ampthill Alchemist blends are amazing, the candles burn beautifully no black smoke and leftover wax at the bottom. Every bit as good as some of the high end essential oil blends without the price tag!
