As part of her work and studies, Kathryn has taught herself a great deal about the power of scent and aromatherapy oils and she incorporates this knowledge into her craft. Kathryn’s lovely candles, melts and diffusers are all hand made in her home in Cork City.
Her materials, from wax, fragrance oils, essential oils and even her packaging are all ethically sourced to include where possible Fair Trade, ethical farming and environmentally friendly, compostable materials. She also makes it her mission to ensure she only works with companies which are environmentally conscious and try their best to have as little impact on the natural world.
H&W products are ideal gifts, As they are priced to sell, come in a pretty presentation box and would bring great pleasure to anyone who needs a lift up, a chill down or who just loves a good smell!
