We personally and carefully select our candle scents based on season and Australian locations and use only the highest quality vegan soy wax, fragrance oils, cotton wicks, frosted glass jars and black wood lids. We then make each candle that we sell by hand and each batch is tested to ensure only the highest quality is going out to our customers. Our testing process is incredibly rigorous for each new scent and we go through on average 60-70 full candle tests to ensure that all ratios are perfect to deliver the perfect cold and hot throw to fill a room.
Our labels are printed by a local printed on a beautiful vinyl that looks incredible and we’re the one of the very few businesses that have all of our candles ‘Australian Made’ certified by the Australian Made Campaign and our labels proudly show the yellow and green kangaroo.
Unlike many candle brands and businesses, we put our wax/net weight on our labels. Many of our competitors put the total (wax and glass jar) weight on their labels so it might seem like our candles are very similar in price, there is actually a huge difference in the size of candle you’ll receive and your total burn time. Kookaburra Living feels that having our wax/net weight on our labels is just more honest. If we followed others, the label on our candles would state 1.2kg as that’s how much our candles ready for shipping weigh which is also why shipping can be more than our competitors.
Highest quality yet affordable scented candles that are Australian Made certified and hand poured by us in Melbourne is where Kookaburra Living started, but we’ve a lot of plans for many other home décor products in the future but our candles will always remain our staple and we’ll always be an Australian business making Australian Made products.
