What Did You Do During Lockdown?
The last few months have been very stressful for families all around the world with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Families not seeing their new born babies, Families not getting to see vulnerable elderly relatives and even worse families losing loved ones because of the virus.
Lockdown has been part of our daily routines now for a few months and this alone can take its toll on people not used to isolation and lack of contact with other human beings. We all need to look after ourselves in times like these not just physically but mentally. The isolation can have adverse effects on our mental health which needs to be addressed positively to stop this becoming an additional problem on top of what the virus has thrown at us.
My partner and I wanted to do something that we could enjoy together, taking our minds off the monotony that had been plaguing us for the first few weeks so we decided to brainstorm and think of things we could do from home and enjoy. After a short period of time we decided we would love to try and make our own soaps, scented candles and personal care products after seeing the shortages of these items in local shops during lockdown.
After placing several orders from numerous online suppliers we were in the infancy of what was to be the start of our very own small business from home 'Scentolica'.
Having experimented with different ingredients, colours and fragrances we have come up with a great catalogue of products we are now proud to sell from our own online store which can be accessed from the link below. We hope you will give them a try and let us know what you think.
