About

Hey folks! I'm Anu. 
Kera was inspired by my childhood, growing up in the beautiful state of Kerala in southern India surrounded by some of the most insane mountains and waterfalls you'll ever see and the best mangoes and coconuts money could buy (well actually it was free, but you get the point). I grew up seeing my grandparents use natural and simple ingredients every day from our farm to make products that were sustainable and produced almost zero waste. They literally made shampoo from water and hibiscus leaves. 
I guess that stuck with me. I'm a huge fan of simple, sustainable goodies that doesn't contain ingredients I can’t pronounce and doesn't leave our planet in a mess. 
The candles are all made from soy wax which is completely natural and vegan friendly. The wicks are made from organic cotton. I make them in small batches in a glorified cupboard in my little brother's room – sorry bro. I also use high quality essential and fragrance oils as well as reusable amber jars which you can get creative with afterwards or send back to me to get 10% off your next order. The scents are mostly inspired by things that remind me of my childhood in India, plus a few other favorites. 
Thank you so much for supporting my little business.
