Spending your working life surrounded by invigorating scents is a pretty good gig, we reckon. No wonder the team at Urban Rituelle are so happy all the time! Here, we take a peek into this highly successful, award-winning home fragrances business.
3 THINGS WE LOVE ABOUT URBAN RITUELLE
1. 100% Australian made
What’s not to love about a company that began in 1999 at an inner city Sydney market? Urban Rituelle’s handmade soaps are made in Australia and sold around the world.
2. Enviro credentials
Urban Rituelle is an environmentally aware company, with the credentials to match. They have never tested products on animals. Their beautiful ingredients are completely natural and ethically sourced. Their packaging is completely recyclable. And they continue to reformulate existing products as more sustainable options become available. What’s not to love about that?
3. Bright and bubbly team
We adore the fact that founders Leanne and Scott always have time for a chat, despite the fact that they are running a global business. And the fact that our main contact, Lauren, always makes us giggle. It’s nourishment for the soul.
3 QUESTIONS FOR CO-FOUNDER, LEANNE HAINING
Do you have a favourite fragrance, and can you describe it in three words?
It’s very hard to choose and my ‘favourite’ changes from week to week! This week, it’s our Flourish Organics Lemongrass blend. It’s made with a divine blend of lemongrass, lemon myrtle, grapefruit and eucalyptus essential oils. I would describe it as uplifting, invigorating and fresh!
What is the favourite part of your daily ritual?
I love calling in to my local café, Sister Fox, every morning after school drop-off and before I hit the office. Here, I cross paths with many wonderful people in my community.
What are you most excited about right now?
I am super excited about the launch of our new collection, Scented Offerings! It has been a dream of ours for years to design and create our own unique and individual glassware for our Home Fragrance collections. We took a risk, and it has paid off. The finished product looks sensational, and we are so proud of the quality.
