Maker of the Month – August 2019

August is officially here and the school holidays are well underway! Throughout this month, we will be featuring Corina at Ethel & Co.

Each of Ethel & Co candles are individually hand poured by Corina and her family from their home in Nottinghamshire.

Corina is a wife, mother to two teenagers and a doggy mum to a chihuahua named Kevin.

Before setting up Ethel & Co, Corina owned a Gift Shop in Nottingham called All Things Pretty.  After running an independent shop for over ten years, she decided running a business from home would allow her more time with her family. Her experience as a Shop Owner, has given her an invaluable insight into the retail world.

Corina is very passionate about reducing plastic and waste – she encourages her customers to reuse the glass jars and bottles from her products. Her packaging is also eco-friendly - Corina was very quick to tell us if we weren’t going to reuse the packing peanuts, that they were biodegradable and to soak them in water!

All of Ethel & Co’s candles are made using natural Coconut and Soy wax, making them vegan friendly too.

Ethel & Co first began stocking their Candles, Room Sprays and Wax Melts with Handmade Design in April 2019 and have recently added their Wax Melts too!
