Maker Story: Ivy and Wood

We love love love Ivy and Wood candles, the scents are so unique, and they are so beautifully created, from the stunning jars to the artists they work with who paint gorgeous artworks for every different scent!
Here is the wondrous Jess from Ivy and Wood sharing her responses to some questions about her business.
1. Can you tell me what you most love about making your beautiful Ivy and Wood candles and other products? 
I just love creating! I find pouring candles therapeutic (though that’s more Brad’s realm these days) and I love designing new products and ranges because it allows me to be a little creative. It’s so rewarding taking a product from conception to launch and seeing other people enjoy it in their homes.
2. Can you tell me the thing that is hardest?
To be honest, supply shortages are our biggest challenge at the moment, it’s really proving that there’s so much you can’t control and you have to step outside your comfort zone, adapt and try lots of new things.
3. What's keeping you sane in this difficult year?
My dogs are one thing - because no matter what goes on in the world, they always want their walk and their dinner and lots of pats and that’s kind of comforting. Also, the fact that I’m an introvert! I’m not really struggling so much with less human interaction and lack of travel. Our business has kept us too busy to really think too about anything else!
