About Kerrie Newton – Founder
My life has taken a sharp & unexpected turn since 2008 when I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis & I now do everything from a wheelchair. I have since rediscovered my passion for candle making. I was first introduced to candle burning as a small child as my father burnt fragranced candles in our home for every occasion. He still fills the home with candles daily, at age 80 (now they’re mine!). As a child I often melted down candles and made my own creations in whatever glassware I could find. I have now perfected the craft over the past five years. I use a mixture of environmentally sustainable Coconut & Soy waxes & blend many of my own fragrances. Now, as it was then, our home is not complete without different fragrances burning in each room, it brings us joy.
I created my Kiss candles to help fundraise for MS Research Australia via the Kiss Goodbye To MS campaign by donating the profits. I spend most of my time at home & this venture has allowed me to stay in touch with people while helping to raise funds to help find a cure for MS for our next generation. I dedicate my time to this cause so that our sons & daughters may live their lives MS free.
This venture has allowed me to connect with so many new people and for that I am grateful. It also allows me to give back to our local community by way of donating my wares, which I love and gives me the opportunity to stay in touch from my home.
