Irish Makers is a new series spotlighting some of the most talented artists, craftspeople and makers that the country has to offer...

It's now more important than ever for us to support small independent businesses, whether that be by sharing their creations across social media, buying from them or recommending to a friend. 

Today's featured maker is Fiona Young with Milis, a family run, dynamic, creative small business based in Dunmore East, Waterford.

Milis specialises in scented homeware products, where each scent is unique and well-balanced. Milis offers a range of fragrances that are not only delightful but evoke a strong personal connection.

Milis' current range offers six base scents: Blush, Home, Morning, Namaste, Sparkle and Zest, which can be purchased individually, as part of a subscription package or in a gift box which comes with a card of choice from an Irish designer. 

In true Christmas spirit, Fiona has also created the scent Hearth which smells of whiskey, spices and wild fig and is inspired by helping her mother make their Christmas cake as a kid, weeks before the big day. 

Milis uses 100 percent natural soy wax, the wicks are made from cotton and paper while the essential oils and fragrance oils are vegan, paraben and phatalate-free - making them the perfect kind-to-you and kind-to-the-planet gift this Christmas!
