About Heather Brown

A Mother and Daughter team, bursting with passion for their small family business. Their hand crafted and eco-conscious range of home fragrance is the perfect recipe of high quality ingredients, beautiful designs and attention to detail. Tested to perfection for your enjoyment and peace of mind.

Why did you start making your products?

I became a Mum to two beautiful children and wanted to be able to work around new family life. So, I left my career in graphic design on a mission to find a new creative passion. I fell in love with soy wax and the endless possibilities to make candle in reusable unique vessels. The rest is history!

What inspires your products or collections?

My inspiration for new collections/ products come by creating an experience. The look of the product, the fragrance and the packaging all tell a story or evoke memories. Quality Home fragrance that makes you smile.

What does a dream day of making look like to you?

My dream day is to make with you in one of our workshops. I love to share my passion and take myself back to where I once started, teaching you all the art of candle making and more!

How do you make your products more sustainable?

We use soy wax which is 100% natural, sustainable and biodegradable plus we work eco consciously to ensure our packaging is eco friendly i.e. reusable or recyclable.
