NŌLA was founded during pregnancy with my twin daughters, Isla & Noah, when I struggled to obtain employment and sought an alternative way to provide for my family while being a stay at home mum. We launched a month before the girls were born and the brand has truly grown along side them.
Due to be pregnant while perfecting our recipes, we committed to consciously sourcing ingredients that would burn safely and cleanly in peoples homes (around little people).
Beyond our low waste initiatives in our workshop and environmental focus, we go beyond and offset our carbon emissions. We have chosen to do so because regardless of how hard we try to be an eco-friendly business, there are unavoidable costs on Earth that many businesses refuse to acknowledge. Offsetting our carbon emissions as a small business encourages the shift towards businesses taking accountability and acting in more sustainable ways. If every business (big and small) did this, imagine!
We also donate 10% of our profits to The Neonatal Trust, a charity that means a lot to our young family. Our daughters were premature; and as challenging as this experience was, we are forever grateful to the people who helped us through this time.
We value the experience of candles: the scents, the ambience, the aesthetic. We strive to make each candle unique enough to intrigue and yet familiar enough to feel like home.
Through the use of high quality ingredients, we hand pour each and every candle from our home to be loved in yours.
