Welcome to Cole Lab!
Our journey started in Melbourne in 2020 when I felt there lacked a variety of quality made scented candles; that were decent sized, eco-conscious and didn’t come with the hefty price tag. In response to this I started to play around with waxes and fragrances and really focused on the materials + ingredients I was using. This resulted in the creation of our coconut shell candles. A sustainable candle that could be reused, repurposed and refilled.
Since then I have relocated to Auckland which sparked a new vision + direction for this small business. With three core values— Create, Care & Community it was important our new brand was built on this foundation.
Whilst staying true to my passion of creating beautifully scented candles and being environmentally friendly, I wanted to create more of an experience that focused on the mind, body + aura through my products. This has encouraged me to now incorporate care products into my product range.
I hand-pour all of our candles and blend our bath teas sourcing their ingredients right here in Aotearoa/New Zealand, making sure I use as many natural and native ingredients as possible.
More importantly giving back to our community is paramount. Cole Lab are making donations through our Coconut Care Candle sales as well as donations to various other charities through our monthly sales.
