Welcome to your box  ‘Every flower blooms in its own time…’

Meet Your June Maker

The first of our series of exciting summer collaborations…

Our featured maker for June is Nomsa, who was inspired by the loss of her mother Suzanna and created her brand back in 2020, hand pouring her cruelty free and vegan collection ‘SUSANNA K’ in her home workshop in Bristol.

Nomsa created a brand founded by a belief that in a world full of chaos and challenges, everyone should make time for moments of self care and calm within our sacred spaces.

Take a moment in the madness and cultivate time to maintain your wellbeing, without sacrificing style or luxury in the process…

 

Wicks Inside My Box

This month, we present to you ‘Wild Flower’. Housed in a modern clear vessel  and made  with a 100% natural coconut soy wax blend, also featuring a crackling wooden wick.

The Candle

Surround yourself with  the light and uplifting notes of leafy greens and Geranium. Reminisce in the wildflower scent as you walk down a Cornish coastal path, beautifully carved out with wildflowers.

Smell the soft notes of Jasmine, honey and sea salt as your hands brush through the colourful blooms. Hear the sound of the waves crashing against the shore, step into a dream and let this delicate scent take you on a calming journey.

It’s time to meet the maker, we spoke with Nomsa from SUSANNA K…

How long has your brand been going/ is it full time or do you do other things?

SUZANNA K launched during October 2020, a few weeks before my second daughter was born so not when I had initially planned but I didn’t realise how much of a perfectionist I was and was just so excited to launch.

Where in the UK are you based and what space do you use for your ‘workshop’?

I’m based in Bristol and I have a spare room that I use as my HQ.

What inspired you to start making candles? Do you have a passion that has been embedded in your brand?

My infatuation with candles can be traced back to 2008, when I was experiencing some challenges and in particular grieving my mother Suzanna. Candles became an essential component of my self care ritual, and one of my most constant sources of comfort as I began the healing process from these experiences.

I believe that, in a world full of chaos and challenges, everyone should make time for moments of self care and calm within our sacred spaces. I hope that SUZANNA K can inspire you to take a moment in the madness and cultivate time to maintain your wellbeing, without sacrificing style or luxury in the process. For me, the lighting of candles has always evoked a feeling of solace and routine, creating essential moments of peace and comfort away from the madness of the outside world. With SUZANNA K I hope to create a space where people can feel empowered to slow down and prioritise their self care.

What do you love about our featured scent?

I love to be by the water. I find it incredibly soothing and calming and flowers are just essential in my home! The Wildflower fragrance combined the two for me as it transported me back to fond memories I had of scenic walks in Cornwall on a few Cornish coastal paths that were beautifully carved out with wildflowers. Not to mention the sound of the waves crashing against the shore in the distance, just bliss!

There are so many scents you can choose to make… How do you go about choosing for your collection?

I tend to pick fragrances that I naturally gravitate towards the most. It was also important to me to curate a collection that had variety.

What has been your proudest moment since starting out?

Ohh all the press coverage (print and paper) from prestigious publications such as Hello, Ideal Home, Good Housekeeping, Good Health, Daily Express that the brand has received! As well as the new stockists the brand has secured recently!!

Do you have any specific ambitions or goals?

I’d love for SUZANNA K to keep growing and become a household name (big I know)!! More importantly though is to inspire and empower people to take a moment in the madness and cultivate moments to centre yourself and focus on your wellbeing.

Do you have any charitable or environmental partnerships we should know about to share?

Since the launch of our new site we now donate 10% of each ZEN Candle to the mind charity having benefited from their services myself.

Is there anything that you believe makes your brand different or stand out?

The very personal reasons why I started as expanded on previously, we are also phthalate free, Paraben free, Vegan, Cruelty free, gluten free, toxin free, skin safe, we use sustainably sourced materials and have fabulous wooden wicks that crackle too!

Are there any plans for new products or news over the next few months? Feel free to add any other information you would like us to share with our subscribers…

Yes! Over the next few months expect to see the launch of our wax melts and as well as some incredible new scents too!

 

There you have it, our June maker and box! We hope this box enables you to take a moment in the madness and cultivate time to maintain your wellbeing!
