Welcome to The Scented Scullery. My name is Kitty and I am the proud owner of this Northern Ireland based business.
My journey first began when I found out the main ingredients in my candles was paraffin. Paraffin is made from by-products of petroleum. To be used in candle making it first needs to be bleached then deodorised. Research has highlighted that it can have implications on your health. It produces a range of harmful chemicals, benzene and toluene for example which hare both well known carcinogens.
As a candle lover, I didn’t want to stop using them. I decided to do some research and decided I would make my own using soy wax. It was a much cleaner and safer alternative. It takes a lot of time testing and researching to make sure candles are the best they can be. Trying different jars, scents and wicks. After numerous failed attempts and multiple test batches, I finally created a candle I was happy with.
Deciding to turn my hobby into a business was my next step. Thinking about my branding, I wanted to make sure that every person, no matter what walk of life, should be bale to have a little bit of luxury at an affordable price. This is what I have created with The Scented Scullery.
Very quickly I had outgrown my kitchen and had to find a workshop. Since then I have had to leave the work shop and I now have my own shop with workshop attached. I have been lucky enough, that with hard work and long hours, I was able to leave my full-time role as a nurse and follow my dream of owning my own home fragrance company.
Without all my amazing customers, The Scented Scullery would not be where it is today. So many of you have believed in me from the start and I can’t thank you enough. The support from you all is overwhelming and I raise my glass to you all.
Cheers, love Kitty
