The Luminescence of Kowhai & Co’s Scented Candles

'Go within every day and find the inner strength so that the world will not blow your candle out.'

- Katherine Dunham

The Luminescence of Kowhai & Co’s Scented Candles

There’s a gentle tranquillity in the flicker of a candle flame, an ethereal dance that brings both warmth and light into our spaces. At Kowhai & Co, our curated collection of scented candles does more than illuminate; it creates an ambience, narrates a story, and supports a noble cause.

A Symphony of Aromas

For those who seek moments of respite in their daily lives, our range of scented candles NZ residents have come to love provides a symphony of fragrances, each with its unique tale:

  • Sweet Pea and Nectarine: A harmonic blend that feels like a spring morning.
  • Black Orchid and Bergamot: A depth of florals, punctuated with citrusy notes, a sensation of luxury.
  • French Pear and White Lily: An elegant dance of sweet and delicate aromas.
  • Geranium and Orange Zest: A revitalising bouquet to lift one’s spirit.
  • And many more, from the enticing notes of Lychee and Black Tea to the sweet allure of Japanese Honeysuckle.

Every inhale invites you into a world of relaxation, transporting your senses to serene landscapes, blooming gardens, or refreshing orchards. These aren’t just nice-smelling candles; they're an experience waiting to be embraced.

Craftsmanship Meets Purpose

All our hand poured soy wax candles embody craftsmanship and purpose. Collaboratively made with Better Tea Co and Downlights NZ, these candles have been lovingly crafted, not only ensuring a premium quality but also supporting the skill development of individuals with Down syndrome and intellectual or learning disabilities.

Soy wax has gained renown for its environmental benefits, and at Kowhai & Co, we’re proud to offer GMO-free, lead-free, zinc-free, and non-toxic soy wax candles. Each time the wick is lit, you're indulging in a clean, sustainable, and holistic experience.

The Essence of Kowhai & Co’s Candles

In an era that feels rushed, there’s a profound beauty in slowing down, in letting the gentle aroma of our scented candles fill your room, and in observing the serene dance of the flame. It's an invitation to presence, to gratitude, and to a deeper connection with oneself.
