Ricki Lawal started her career working as a Management Consultant at Ernst & Young followed by a move to a fast paced Tech role as a Marketing Lead. After feeling disenfranchised with a brand that paid lip service to important issues, Ricki launched a wellness brand focused on sustainable home fragrances.
In a space of a few weeks from founding, the brand had raised over £800 to support black lives matter through donating to Stand Up To Racism and achieved coverage in national press including Elle, The Strategist, Harper’s Bazaar and more.
Ricki has taken the leap to focusing full time on advancing sustainable wellness and creating a brand that both supports the black community and provides an eco conscious approach to wellness products. Selfmade products glow then grow. Once candles are consumed, the labels can be replanted in the same jar.
