Hi there! I am Charmaine, and welcome to a little bit about me :). Gosh these are hard to write sometimes, it's either did I write to much or not enough? Was it too personal or boring?? But if anyone knows me it's that all the while I like my privacy I am also not scared to share a little something about myself and how I got to where I am, I mean how else are we supposed to connect right? There is certainly nothing I like more than connecting with all my customers. Of course I may not be for everyone, but who is right? So here I go... I was born and raised in a small country town in the Riverland region of South Australia. I am a wife to Craig who runs the family business - 260 acres of wine grapes with his eldest brother. I am a Mother to one human who is my heart and soul Isabella and a Mumma to 3 four legged fur babies, our dogs Paws and Oscar & Cat Brax, as well as our noisy chatty feathered friend Jack (cockatiel).
I have always loved candles from a young age, and had quite a collection of them when I was a teenager from various holidays as well as gifts from family and friends. I first started making candles back in 2012, not only was it an interest but it was also to help with my anxiety which I was struggling with on a daily basis. I used to gift these candles to family and friends as well as burn them myself. I was then encouraged by many to take the next step of selling to the public. So over time of much research, trial and error and finding what best worked for me. I decided to take that step and start up my own small business and as they say the rest is history!
Heavenly Lush was established in 2016, creating quality candles using environmentally friendly Australian sourced soy wax at an affordable price. Our fragrance oil range is quite generous and our oils are a blend of Essential oils and Premium oils which are formulated in Australia. Resulting in long lasting, clean burning candles and delicious smelling aromas.
Over time I decided to have a go at making bath bombs, sugar scrubs, bubble bath, room spray just to name a few. Since then we have extended our product range so there is something for everyone to enjoy. There is no doubt that I love what I do, I take pride in what I do, and I am always trying something new and certainly open to suggestions.
I also attend a few markets around the Riverland region, so to keep an update on that please follow my Event page on the website or my Facebook Page for details on upcoming markets and open days at my home studio.
I hope you enjoy browsing my website, and if you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to go to the contact section and send me through a message. I look forward to making these goodies for you and your friends :)
Sincerely Charmaine xx
