The idea for BeGin Again came about in late 2019 by accident.
Through a mutual love of gin, candles and upcycling, an idea was born to utilise lovely (nearly/empty) gin and spirit bottles, cut the top off and fill with beautiful fragranced wax. The bottles would literally begin again. It would be so easy!
Much trial and tribulation followed over the months, along with one wax covered kitchen and a glass shard covered shed, swearing under breath, ratio testing, wax trials, wick burning sessions, sniffing, cutting, sanding, breaking, head banging off the wall at health & safety and legalities, and children left to fend for themselves - but friends and family had wonderfully fragrant houses!
Satisfied with a totally vegan range that is sustainable, ethical, 100% recyclable/upcycled (even the packaging and its source!) and mostly organic, BeGin Again are selling to a growing loyal client base - in person, online and through a small number of retail outlets - and are now taking bookings for bespoke product lines for events too. It’s all quite dreamy.
