I met Inshaaf through a Facebook group we are both part of, & we just clicked. I love her passion for her business & her Instagram feed gives me all the feels. I haven’t personally tried her products (yet!), but I have only seen positive reviews & they just sound so divine.
So let’s dive into finding out more about Luxbury together…
Your name: Inshaaf Amos
Business name: Luxbury
Social media handles: Instagram, Facebook & Website
Tell me a bit more about your business: Luxbury, hand-crafted in Cape Town with expert care. Our candles and essential oil infused rollers are both luxurious and timeless. Essential oils and all materials are sourced from local suppliers.
Our candle ranges include cotton wicks as well as wood wicks and our rollers are ideal for your on the go aromatherapy fix.
Where did the idea to start this come from: As a little girl, I melted crayons in a pot in my grandma’s kitchen, wanting to make colourful candles to give to family and friends, which I’m sure most kids did growing up in those days. Unbeknownst to me, I created my future self right there in that quaint little kitchen. As humans, we associate scent with memories whether it be grandma’s kitchen smell, moms perfume or the holiday coconut scent we experienced a year ago. Luxbury wants to provide that link between old and new memories. The aromatherapy aspect is a pleasant and sometimes much-needed bonus.
What makes your candles different to other brands: Luxbury is different from other brands not only because it’s handmade with pure essential oils, but it has wooden wicks
which burns cleaner, longer and makes a faint soothing crackling sound as they burn to create an illusion of a fire burning in the distance.
What is your personal favourite scent: My personal favourite scent is without a doubt Peony Rose. This scent is the perfect self care ritual staple for everyone.
Where can people purchase your candles from:
11 Bright Street
13 Andringa Street
27 Somerset Rd,
One Boutique Store
I see that your candles have 2 uses – please tell me more: Our candles are used at home to evoke a calming mood and to set a romantic tone on your special day.
And the soy wax can be used as a massage oil when melted and will moisturise the skin.

I love the fact that these products have multiple uses, their scents sound divine & their look is classic & timeless. Personally I think these would make the most divine Christmas gifts – I’m always one to light candles throughout my house, & especially when they have a beautiful scent that will embrace your entire house.
