About Us

Manor Road’s mission is to create chic exceptionally fragranced candles that are not harmful to our bodies, home or the environment. Our aim is to bring our customers the best candles, not the cheapest. We offer high quality propriety soy wax blend candles pure and clean burning, free from phthalates, sulphates, and parabens.  Only bath and body quality fragrances and essential oils are used and all come with cotton lead free wicks. Each candle is hand poured with great care and attention in the beautiful state of Maryland.

Manor Road is owned and run by Helen van Terheyden a nurse midwife, native of Dublin Ireland, and passionate about promotion of good health and wellbeing. Her candles are bright and fresh, not mass-produced, made from the heart. Every fragrance evokes a memory and emotion of places she has lived, growing up in Ireland, England, Scotland, The Middle East, and wonderful USA. Each vessel can be re-used in other ways such as small beverage or cocktail glasses, pillar candle holders, window sill herb planters, small appetizer holders, desk pencil holders, or anything your imagination desires.

” My passion and pleasure is to transform the simple act of lighting a candle into a frequent everyday ritual, with the knowledge that I am purifying and cleansing the air in a non-toxic way”

The luxury collection are classic and elegant making it a perfect gift for that special person in your life or a wonderful hostess gift. The Samantha embedded Heart Collection inspired by her beautiful daughter who loves all things fruity and spicy is made with great attention to detail and is a darling gift and expression of love for anyone special young or old. All candles are packaged in a classic custom Manor Road box. Many of our fragrances are custom made, just for Manor Road.

“May the Luck of the Irish lead to the happiest heights and the highway you travel be lined with green lights”
