My Story

Hello I’m Rachel,

I’m a Graphic Designer by trade and after an extremely tough 2 years of fighting off anxiety bought on by the news that our unborn baby had congenital heart disease and would require multiple open heart surgeries when he was born, I desperately yearned for something else to focus on. I loved my job as a designer but I wanted something else away from the screen, something else to focus on away from the daily crippling worries, something I could nurture and grow but love doing. Making candles became my therapy!

I dabbled and played around whilst I was pregnant, then motherhood took hold so I couldn’t quite bring my idea of turning this new found passion into a business until late 2020. The process is time consuming but so enjoyable, making and creating a source for light. It became my light, especially also working with all the divine and powerful essential oils which always gives me a real sense of calm.

I tried and tested many scents, tools and processes and combined my knowledge and skills of design and branding and before I knew it Inessence was born.

There are so many great candle brands out there but with many using ingredients and fragrance oils which have toxic chemicals in and are really not good for you, I wanted my brand to be all about nature and all the healing properties and benefits of using pure ingredients and only pure essential oils for the fragrance. These oils have been used for centuries for medicinal purposes and have powerful effects on your well being. There is an essential oil for everything whether it be mood or pain.
Dr Axe has been a real inspiration for me in researching oils and their healing properties. https://draxe.com/essential-oils/

Other than having a primary focus on being all natural, I wanted to be a little different visually too at the same time conquering any slight inclination of later boredom from having just one range, I came up with the idea to offer personalisation of my candles as well as it’s own signature scents, again putting my design skills to use and offering customers the option to write a personal message on the label. I get to work on different new designs at my own pace which keeps me being creatively content but more so I just love the idea of being apart of somebodies special gesture of giving to a loved one on a special occasion. That leaves my heart smiling.

I really feel like I was shown this little path, almost like being handed a branch to not only help me through an extremely tough time but at the same time deeply satisfy my creative side, enabling me to use all the tools and skills I am blessed with and the result being something others can enjoy and benefit from too, for this I will be eternally grateful. I’m also extremely grateful for my very good friend who has always supported and praised my work inspiring and motivating me to go further. Thank you, you know who you are!

The biggest lesson I think I’ve learnt is through being creative, recognising and focusing on my own strengths and putting them to good use, no matter how big or small has helped me heal as well as grow as a person, providing a sense of achievement as well as new found confidence. Things don’t always go right when trying to do something, but through the acceptance of trialing and failing sometimes, I have learned so much which only makes me continuously want to do better.
From now on whatever life throws at me I will try to use creativity as my therapy. Worry and anxiety is such a waste of energy by putting that energy into creating something has helped so much in ultimately changing my mindset, mood and ability to think more rationally.

I am loving the journey I am on and am excited to see where it goes. I have lots of ideas where I want to take the brand, some maybe a bit crazy but I think it’s good to have dreams, it’s what keeps me motivated and driven too.

Thanks for reading my story. I hope you enjoy my candles as much as I do making them.

Rachel
