Our Story


Blossom & Ivy was founded from our little kitchen in Nottingham, where I started creating with wax back in 2019, initially experimenting with colours and glitters before finally realising my love of natural wax with dried botanicals. After making my first batch of Damson Plum, Rose and Patchouli snap bars I was never going back! I decided to turn my hobby into a business, building the brand on the foundation of botanicals; elegant melts with beautiful pops of colour.
.
It wasn’t long before my fiancé Tom started getting involved, and Blossom & Ivy products started taking over our house... we've had to pop lots of things in our loft to make room for packing boxes, burners, wax, containers, packing peanuts, wax melt stock... the list is never-ending and ever growing! Nothing excites me more than the buzz of a new idea and the journey towards the end product!
.
After initially postponing our launch due to Covid-19, we opened our website in May 2020 and haven’t looked back since! We're proud to say that Blossom & Ivy parcels have been sent all over the UK!

We decided earlier this year to transform our spare room into our Blossom & Ivy workspace (tour pending!) and dream of one day being able to extend this even further. Whilst I focus on the more creative aspects of the brand, Tom is the ‘business brains’ and focuses on the logistics. The majority of wax batches are made by us both... together we make a pretty good team!
.
I founded Blossom & Ivy whilst working full time, but thanks to our wonderful customers, I've been able to dedicate more of my time to the brand, and now only work one day a week at school. I'm so grateful to have been able to take this next step... it wouldn't have been possible without our customers!
.
We’re both so excited for what the future holds for Blossom & Ivy, and all of the exciting products that are in the pipeline!
Thank you for coming on this journey with us!

Dream big, Shop small.
