By Kemi Mobuse - Wednesday, April 13, 2016

At the end of a busy day all I want to do is to relax in my home. I want to be able to easily find somewhere to put my feet up, sip a glass of wine or a cup of tea, ignore the world outside and just be free from any kinds of stress or tension. 

I truly believe, as I know you do too, that our houses are not just bricks and mortar or timber and nails; our houses are our homes,places of refuge and places that are close to our hearts.The more love we put into our homes the more welcoming, relaxed and ambient they will feel. 

They can also positively influence behaviour, emotions, and overall mental health.hence, so, the way I put my stamp on my surroundings to not only showcase my collective taste but also create a relaxed and welcoming environment in every room of my home is to use scented candles.And you can do just that do, by using Dach Candles!

Kemi Mobuse blog: How did you now start out? And how old is your brand?
Dach Candles: I wanted to have a Nigerian made candle and oil company that was on the same standard as the international ones
Well it took almost a year of research and trial runs. It wasn't easy. I tried to source as much as I could from Nig. I eventually started November, 2015. I started by word of mouth.
My Family and friends were the first clients, from there, it gradually built up
Kemi Mobuse blog: Awwww, how was the market reception back then, compared to now?
Dach Candles: I was soooo scared that it wouldn't be receptive as most people prefer the. bigger international brands. But, the funny thing is; the reception was warm. I got great reviews and return clients that referred people to me.So far, it has been nice.

Kemi Mobuse blog: What can you say being an entrepreneur has taught you?
