I design and create candles and room sprays with the environment and sustainability in mind and want to start my own business

by Emma Calcutt in Woodchester, England, United Kingdom

I am a massage therapist and I work in a warehouse. Being a solo parent both of these options during Covid have not been viable for me. So I used my time on furlough to design and create candles and room sprays with sustainability in mind. The process has taken longer and is more expensive than I imagined to set up but I have come so far that it would be foolish to turn back. I need funding to take the business to the next step which includes upgrading equipment and also ensuring all labelling fulfills the legal requirements so that I can get insurance and begin selling them this Autumn. I am booked to do my first stall at Stroud Ethical Christmas market which I believe will be the perfect place to get local exposure.
It has been my ambition to be able to use my creativity to be able to work in a way that allows me to be flexible as a parent and work in a way that is viable for someone with physical health issues too.

The products that I make use only essential oils, no synthetic fragrances. They are sourced with the environment in mind, meaning that no endangered plant species are used. The wax is also from a sustainable plant source, meaning that they are able to be used by vegans as well as people sensitive to synthetic fragrance. The end product as well as the packaging aims to use as little plastic as possible or to reuse plastic packaging without buying it.
