A Bridgnorth woman couldn’t find what she wanted in the shops – so she launched her own company. Rachel Mills, a former customer services manager, found that her daughters were having a negative reaction to perfume they had been given as a gift. She explained, “I came up with the idea for these bangles as my two girls were having a small allergic reaction to the perfume. I wanted to create something they could wear that was perfumed but wasn’t going to create a reaction.”
Rachel created the brand name Lish D’lish and then worked with a friend who had manufacturing contacts in China to make the bangles, which are made of a scented silicone. She said, “I was so excited to receive the first delivery of my bangles. It’s an amazing feeling to see your idea come to life. It’s been a huge learning curve but I love a challenge and this was something I really wanted to do.”
The bangles, which come in a range of fruity scents, are aimed at children aged between eight and 13, and they are available in Bridgnorth’s Alley Katz toy shop and Bella Gifts at Apley Farm Shop, as well as on Amazon.
