Nice to meet you!
Hi! My name is Kara, and I am the creator behind Kundalini Candles!
It all started when I graduated from business school in December 2018. I had a difficult time deciding what I wanted to do. I was considering starting a dog walking business, but then I remembered using my hands to create something beautiful has always brought me the most joy. I believe this realization is what sparked the idea when I woke up one winter morning. I knew I wanted to start a candle business, and I was going to do anything it took to make it happen.
I spent months learning the basics and going through the trial and error. I finally launched my Etsy shop in April of 2019.
When the pandemic caused a huge glass supply shortage, I could not get a hold of my original glass jars any longer. This is when I made the switch to creating my very own cement vessels! I found out quickly how much creative control it gave me, and how much people enjoyed them.
Almost four years in now, I have learned more about candles (and cement casting) than I have about anything else in my life. I really fell in love with the craft, and bonus, I am surrounded by my beloved candles 24/7. Now, I have made thousands of cement vessels and fine-tuned my brand into what it is today.
