Blushing Ivy Home Fragrance is a Sunshine Coast based candle and diffuser small business. Lorrae’s candles are 100% non-GMO soy wax, vegan and cruelty free. Handcrafted on the Sunshine Coast in the beautiful Moffat Beach, inspiration for their scents is taken from their stunning surroundings and favourite activities.

“At Blushing Ivy Home Fragrance, our aim is to provide you with beautiful scents that transport you to your very own happy place. We hope by sharing some of our favourite fragrances, we can evoke the same feelings of relaxation, serenity and home that we feel every time we light one of our candles.”

What is your best renovation tip? Expect the unexpected! Always have a contingency fund and roll with the punches if something doesn’t go to plan.

What is your favourite interior style? Modern Coastal with British Colonial influences.

Why do you do what you do? I am very passionate about making a home feel like your own safe-haven. I have always loved using home fragrance but have been disappointed with the lack of quality, eco friendly products on the market so I decided to make my own!

Who inspires you? My husband’s work ethic and can do attitude constantly inspire me. I am also inspired by local business owners on the Sunshine Coast who always seem to have fresh, innovative ideas that support other locals.


When you visit the Reno Home Show, you’ll have to smell their favourite scent: Beach Hair, Don’t Care. It is a divine combination of coconut and lime, with top notes of lime, lemon and vanilla. Find them at stand D15.
