Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

I started selling my products at local charity events, my goal is to turn my hobby into a legitimate business. I have been working towards making a website and getting a licence however, it gets very expensive on top of all the ingredients, packaging and the delivery costs of the items. I hope to raise enough money to get the business off the ground.
One of my main motivators for starting the business is that I have very sensitive skin and eczema, there is very little on the market that is affordable and works with my skin type. The Himalayan body scrub that I make and use contains Shea butter and Himalayan salt which helps exfoliate and moisturise the skin. The bath melts contain Lavender and coconut oil which helps to relax and moisturise. I also sell Epsom salt which helps relax muscles, bath bombs, candles and soap.
I purchase from local vendors for the ingredients to make the products because I like to support local business and the local economy. I think it is very important to maintain a connection to my community. I enjoy selling my products at local events for example last year I had the opportunity to attend and sell my products at Folk on the Farm and the Holyhead Christmas Fair.
I want to help others relax and fell better within themselves. Sometimes a bath is just what you need to relax and unwind, why settle for anything less than luxury especially when you can get that at an affordable price.
