I'm the founder of Botanical Forrest – calming and therapeutic scented candles and wax melts. In March 2020 I was made redundant, and after two decades working in London and living in Suffolk, I knew I wanted to make a radical career change. I felt a strong pull to work back in Suffolk. I absolutely love fragrance in my home and I believe scent is incredibly emotive, can improve our mood and sense of wellbeing. So I followed my dream and took the plunge to pursue my own business. Botanical Forrest is a way of contributing to people’s emotional wellbeing especially as we are currently spending so much time at home. I hope our products help to capture a memory and evoke a spirit of contentment.
