A little bit about Josie:

Suffolk based candle maker Josie started j candles in May 2020. Josie has suffered with her mental health since a teen and after trying a candle making kit during lockdown and finding it very therapeutic and a great distraction from everything going on, it sparked the decision to start j candles.

Creating mental health enhancing soy wax candles and home fragrances has now been part of Josie’s life for 3 years, selling her handmade products in local shops, at markets and even in John Lewis! She’s now wanting to share her knowledge and love for being creative by teaching others the art of candle making.
