How I started . . .

Established in 2019 - This is a little bit about how I started.

After being married for 20 years and having three beautiful children I was at a crossroads. I'd been a typist, a secretary and a childminder in my previous roles and was desperate for a change. A change that needed to include creating something I could be proud of, and hopefully everyone else would love just as much.

Wax & Lather was born.

A new career, but what to do? After brain storming with my hubby for weeks and months we finally settled on making our own candles. We'd been buying the same paraffin based candles for years, so we set our sights on making a cleaner alternative. Those of you who have been with us from the start will know we originally went by the name Wax & Lather. After trading under this for a year, we had a meeting with a business advisor, who suggested using my name as the brand instead.

So here we are.

Three years of long days, evenings and weekends and I can finally say we're  truly proud of our products. So proud in fact that I put my name on them. It's been a lot of work and a lot of sacrifices, but I can say I don't regret a moment of it. Thank you to all those who have supported us to this point, and a warm welcome to those who choose us to keep their homes smelling lovely in the future.

Lots of love
