Jessica graduated from Hartford Art School before working 8.5 years for the Connecticut State Legislature and another 5 years as a graphic designer. After these years of hard work, she realized it was time for a change and she was ready to pursue a new passion. She always had a love for living a healthy and minimalistic lifestyle, so she decided to take up making soy wax candles. In 2017, this idea bloomed into CottageWitch Botanicals.
Today, CottageWitch is located in the Whiting Mills art studio space in Winsted, Connecticut. The company has expanded to making organic skincare products in addition to soy wax candles. They use only high-quality, organic and plant-based ingredients. The company does not use phthalates, colorants, toxic chemicals or test on animals! They believe in the beauty and benefits of what Mother Nature has to offer. Browse their selection of body and face soaps, candles, oils and more!
