Hi...my name's Katie, I’m 38, I have two children and have been married to my wonderful husband for two years. I was working in childcare before I set my business up. I worked in Children’s Centres and loved watching the children learn and develop. Then last year my little boy broke both his legs on the trampoline - I had to leave work to look after him and also my mum who has early on set Alzheimer’s. A lovely friend of mine bought me a candle making kit for something to do while being confined at home. I found making candles and wax melts so therapeutic it was just what I needed at that time. When my little boy went back to school and my mum stayed in the care home I found I had time on my hands again. With the support of my children and husband, I thought up Ellie Rose Aromas. I’ve had the best journey so far and am so grateful to the lovely customers I’ve met alone the way. I always believe things happen for a reason, hopefully one day when my business grows I can say at least something good came out of the most heartbreaking time for me.
