The Name Behind the Brand
Well you guessed it- my name is Kayla and I am the face behind Kayla’s Candle Co.
I have always had a love for candles and all things that smell beautiful. In my family home, we would always have a candle burning and this inspired me to create a business where I could make any scent that I liked and also choose beautiful glassware that would perfectly suit any space, and so Kayla’s Candle Co was established December 2018.
I began this business heading into a busy year 12 at school. Starting up this business during the most important year of schooling was tough but I wouldn't change it at all! This taught me how to manage my time and prioritise things in a timely manner. 2020 has been a huge year of growth for Kayla's Candle Co, it has seen the introduction of specialty jars, an expansion of products and the scent list has more than doubled to accommodate everyone's favourite.
Aside from pouring candles, I am a first-year full-time university student studying a double degree in Bachelor of Forensic Science and Criminology- A little bit out of the box hey?! But most importantly something I love is Calisthenics! I began calisthenics at the age of 9 and have never looked back! If you have never heard of Calisthenics before, it is a uniquely Australian sport that combines the arts of ballet, rhythmic gymnastics, jazz, musical theatre and apparatus work.
I am so proud to have started this business completely on my own with the moral support from all of my friends and family. I am super lucky to have the support of my parents who allow me to create all of these beautiful products in my home and even have my own dedicated studio space.
I would also like to take this moment to thank each and every customer that has supported me big and small from the beginning. I have come such a long way already, but the journey doesn’t stop here!
