MEET THE MAKER
Kash Harvey – Chief Maker and Owner of Skye Candle and Body Care
I am passionate about helping people live life naturally and simply.
Skye Candle and Body Care is a gentle nod to my beautiful daughter, Skye. When I found out I was pregnant in 2016, I wanted to find a way to stay home with my daughter and do something that I was passionate about. I began experimenting with candles and body care products. I discovered that playing with fragrances, researching natural ingredients and creating a bespoke range of home fragrances and self-care products brought me joy.
Raising a child and running a small homemade and handcrafted business is a journey. There are challenges, but there is so much happiness. When you get to do what you love, surrounded by those that you love – well, there’s nothing quite like it.
We are all on our own different journeys – I hope Skye Candle and Body Care can support you on yours.
Here at Skye Candle and Body Care, our goal is simple – to handcraft homemade home fragrance and self-care products that are kind to you and kind to our unique New Zealand environment.
Skye Candle and Body Care products are homemade and handcrafted in small-batches in Wellington, New Zealand and made with love. We don’t use any products that we wouldn’t put on our own skin, we select only the finest natural ingredients and we’re committed to reducing plastic packaging.
We understand that time is precious, so we’ve handcrafted a range of soy scented candles, tea lights and wax melts, bath, body and skin care, aromatherapy and essential oil products that can all be purchased from the comfort of your home, on our online shop – Skye Candle and Body Care.
At Skye Candle and Body Care, our hearts are big. We like to give back to our community where possible. 20% of all profits from our aroma, self-care and indulgence subscription boxes go to charities nominated by our customers, or charities that are close to our heart. We also offer fundraising opportunities for local clubs, sports teams, schools and community initiatives. By us helping you feel good, you are helping us do good.
