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. I also hand make the wicks from organic cotton. They're made in small batches in my kitchen/garden shed/any room that has space – much to my mother's despair (dreaming of a studio one day). 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. Each candle is named after a special place in Kerala. I hope you too can enjoy a little piece of it :)
Thank you so much for supporting my little business.
