When founders Erik and Michelle met – two minds fell in love. With Erik’s Masters’ degree in biochemistry and computer aided designs, and Michelle’s background in being a creative professional specialising in trend and design, and also being a qualified aromatherapist – the opportunity to craft something truly exceptional was undeniable, and the idea of creating luxury candles based on 3D design, was born.
On a trip back from Langebaan, listening to Ben Howard – Erik and Michelle settled on the name okra candle. Due to the vegetables unique and distinctive attributes, in both name and form. Each hand-poured candle embodies a feeling of sophistication and grandeur – adding an exclusive element of design to your home or event. With personally blended aromas, that suit the taste and personal aesthetic.
