To be able to raise funds to launch collection of scented candles and lifestyle brand in hope of providing a tranquil environment.

by Victoria Ajimobi in Basildon, England, United Kingdom

My name is Victoria and I'm the founder of Neriah Scents which is named after my daughter Atarah-Neriah which means Lamp, Light of God in Hebrew. The brand started as a personal hobby, acting as a stress relief and creative outlet. 

Upon having my first child I found it difficult in getting myself to relax, even after she had gone to bed. I found myself overthinking all at once and not knowing where and when to stop. I've always loved candles and wax melts, so I found that they helped me relax after a long day.

However, I found the majority of candles out there weren’t as environmentally friendly as expected.  Though I still desired the relaxing effect after lighting the candles without worries, I decided to create my own range which led me into finding an even better and eco-friendlier options for my candles.

I have spent the last 5 months undergoing the process of handcrafting and testing soy wax and a variety of fragrances that are soothing, eco friendly and CLP Compliant

Our collection of Candles and Reed Diffusers are delicately crafted to inspire and promote a tranquil environment 

Our first goal to raise £4,000 will help us to:

  • Buy raw materials (soy coconut wax, fragrance oils, vessels etc) and eco-friendly  packaging to produce at least 300 candles & Reed Diffusers.
  • Pay for props and outsource professional product shoot service.
  • Pay for advertising (Instagram and Facebook)
  • Pay for one year subscription on Wix platform.

I can make all these happen with your generous donations, pledges and purchases. While we can’t deliver outside of the UK YET, we’d still be very grateful for your priceless support!
