WOOD scented candle

Think of wood as growth: the embodiment of movement and constant renewal. It is the element that gives us the structure and flexibility to live expansive, hopeful and optimistic lives (even when they feel challenging). The one that encourages us to look forward, to plan and make decisions and find clarity.

Do you remember walking through the forest? The deep green canopy of leaves above, the soft moss crackling beneath your feet, and the fresh scent of pine breaking through the mist.

About homework:

Like many stories, homework's begins with a search for balance. After working for years as a graphic designer for brands, Stephanie, the co-founder, longed for something that combined her love of design, community, and the healing power of nature. And while the words "home" and "work" had always resonated in two different worlds, their connection felt like the yin and yang she needed. This idea of ​​opposing but connected elements finding harmony as a pair gave us our name: homework.

homework is a tribute to Stephanie's Chinese heritage, having grown up with Traditional Chinese Medicine - from her grandmother picking herbs in the mountains of Tai Po to develop her own remedies, to her parents emigrating to Manchester in 1984 to open their own clinic. So it was both natural and important that homework's sensory philosophy is rooted in TCM.

Beyond the fragrances they create, they also use their platform to amplify voices from the East and Southeast Asian community by sharing their work, stories, recipes and rituals.

A big part of the practice as a sensory studio is being nature-focused. This looks like living in harmony with the seasons, drawing on the grounded and tangible elements of nature, from the quiet rippling of water to the warmth of the sun. Because of this, they run their business on similar principles. They produce in small batches, use responsibly sourced ingredients, encourage people to reuse the jars and offer to recycle them themselves.

In an effort to create more balance – a back and forth of give and take – they are also members of 1% For The Planet, an organization that requires companies to donate 1% of their annual revenue to environmental causes.
