Our Story

Hi! Thanks for visiting us.

We are a small Social Traders certified social enterprise and we're on a mission to help protect and improve the lives of animals in need. We do this by offering gifts and homewares that give back - with 50% of our profits donated to animal welfare organisations. We’ve donated over $60,000* and helped animals in Australia and overseas,

Our story starts in 2017 in Melbourne, Australia where Founder, Audrey Martin, set out to support animal rescue by raising money selling premium, hand-poured candles at local markets. With that, The Karma Collective was born and since then, has flourished into a thriving wholesaler and retailer of gifts that restore harmony to the world, in every sense.   

In 2022, with baby #2 on the way, Audrey decided it was time for Karma to find a new family to nurture its growth. Audrey met Angharad and Peter Lubbock who were on a mission to champion more regenerative, holistic living on small acreage in Toowoomba, Australia. With plans to rescue farm animals on their 5.5 acre property, and with the space to grow the candle operations, it was the right match. 

Karma HQ moved to Toowoomba in March 2023 and continues to make premium cocosoy wax candles by hand. We are open to the public on weekends, so if you are in the area, please get in touch! We are also offering work experience and employment for people in the community who face barriers. 

We are looking forward to continuing to expand the way that Karma restores harmony in the world, through products, services and experiences. We couldn't achieve our goals without our amazing stockists and customers.

Thanks for reading this, and for uplifting our collective Karma!
