Jo Malone has teamed up with a group of charities in honour of World Mental Health Day.
World Mental Health Day will be taking place this Saturday 10th October, so London perfume house Jo Malone is selling a special range of products to raise money for the cause.
The brand has also created a special courtyard garden, Martineau Gardens in Edgbaston, Birmingham, for volunteers who suffer from mental health problems and learning disabilities to spend time.
We love the fragrance house’s products at the best of times, so when we can support charitable causes at the same time as sprucing up our mantelpiece it’s definitely a win-win.
And we love Jo Malone’s Charity Candle Collection so much that we’d be happy to buy it all year round.
World Mental Health Day: Jo Malone Charity Candle Collection
‘At Jo Malone London we are committed to supporting mental health and the profoundly healing effect that nature has on mental health problems and people living with painful personal challenges,’ says the brand.
‘One in four people will be affected by mental health problems in their lifetime. We want to help break the taboo that still surrounds the topic.
‘We are proud to support those living with mental health problems. Empowering people to recover. Reconnect. Grow. Through dedicated projects with inspirational charities. Raising awareness. Providing support. Stamping out stigmas, one step at a time. All supported through the sales of our Charity Home Candle Collection.’
Jo Malone is supporting a number of charities across the country with the sales of their collection, with the brand making a donation equal to 75% of the RRP of £48 (less VAT) from each sale in the UK & Ireland, to support people affected by mental health problems through dedicated projects with their choice charities.
Charities that Jo Malone is supporting include:
- Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families
- NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children)
- Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH)
- St Mungo’s
- Pieta House
- Phoenix Futures
We feel like snapping up all four!
Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.
Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).
But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.
When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
