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 2022 and continues to make premium cocosoy wax candles by hand.

We are working to build and open a 2 acre Wellbeing Sanctuary in Toowoomba where we will offer animal therapy and nature-based wellbeing experiences.

We will soon launch Embodied Wellbeing - our flagship online wellbeing program for people seeking to access simple daily practises that deliver profound and lasting results.

We couldn't achieve our goals without our amazing stockists and loyal customers.

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