On a mission to create a ripple effect and raise our vibration candle by candle. 

To capture the most positive, magical energy with the ability to release it into our spaces and everyday lives. Using only natural ingredients - Essential oils, natural wax and the most beautiful ethically sourced crystals from around the world. 



My name is Madeleine, the owner and founder of HOOF & PAW and I now live in Oxfordshire with my family. 

In 2016 I was a single lady, left London and jumped on a plane with a one way ticket to Australia. I had absolutely no plan in place! It wasn't until I was on the plane (after selling all my furniture, my car and leaving my job and friends) that I wondered what a mad (or not so) plan it was. Very quickly everything just fell into place. 

HOOF & PAW was inspired by this trip to Australia which led to so much love on so many levels. That decision to leave London not only led to starting the business but it also led me to meet my husband and now, we have two beautiful children together. Australia has a lot to answer for ;) 

I instantly fell in love with the energy in Australia and I longed to be able to package it up and take it home. So, I set about creating a completely natural product with essential oils which could not only capture positive energy but have the ability to release it into our spaces. It took about nine months and with lots and lots of testing, I launched in 2017. 

My overall aim is to spread a little bit of love and light into the world, one candle at a time and create a beautiful butterfly effect.

I get asked this question all the time, why HOOF & PAW? Well, it is all in the name of love, light and magic.

I met my now husband (as of 2021!), Chris just three days before flying to Australia with that one way ticket. 

We spoke every day with the determination to make it work. All topics were covered, including the well known topic of..'If you could be any animal what would you be?....' 

I chose a Unicorn and Chris chose a Wolf. In these new forms we'd have to walk hoof in paw, no hand holding!

A few months later Chris surprised me with two certificates. He had bought two stars. He named one HOOF and the other PAW and told me "no matter where we are in the world, no matter how lonely or far apart, just look up into the stars and know I'm always with you"

The idea for the candles and business was already well on the way and by that point and a name was needed. A name which stood the test of time so...

...you could say the name was written in the stars!

These beautiful stars will always be looking over us, always together, magical and filled with light and love. This is what my candles represent, a candle filled with love and light with the aim to harness that magical energy and use it through our daily lives.

Hand poured with 100% natural wax and natural essential oils, the candles are created to work with specific energies. I use 100% essential oils to harness the energy that's needed and team them with crystals to enhance the magic. 

Essential oils are naturally occurring substances found in different parts of plants. Research on aroma reveals that we respond emotionally more to smell than to any of our other senses. Because of this, aromatherapy enables us to benefit from the special properties of pure essential oils.

Crystals have been used for centuries and in cultures all over the world to enhance balance and positivity into our lives. Everything we can see and feel has an energy so it’s no wonder that crystals, being millions of years old have extraordinary energy with each one emitting a unique vibration. 


For the first 5 years, I created and blended the fragrances myself using only 100% essential oils and poured all the candles in my home studio in Oxfordshire. 

More recently and as the company evolved, I started working with the most incredible natural perfumers, experts in their field to bring you the most beautiful, intricate blends, using the finest essential oils.

As for pouring the candles, I now have help with some of the collections and work with a fantastic female led company who hand pour each and every one. Their attention to detail and love for what they do is amazing. It took me a long time to find a company where I was happy with the energy and people behind it. 

I know exactly what goes into each candle and the energy that surrounds it. I wouldn't have it any other way.
