Hi Karen! Tell us about your business

You can never have too many candles! They smell amazing, look great and make perfect gifts. We’ve always had a candle addiction, but when we realised that burning paraffin and synthetic fragrance oils releases harmful substances into the air you breathe, we set about creating candles that burn cleanly by eliminating all nasties. Read on to find out more about Little Karma Co. and our full story.

What drove you to start the business?

With a new arrival on the way, it was important to us that our home was completely safe, including the air that we breathed. This led us to develop our range of 100% natural scented candles, which are fragranced using only pure essential oils that are not only clean but bring with them amazing aromatherapy benefits.

Our mission with Little Karma Co, was to create a collection that was luxurious, aesthetically beautiful and made gifting simple. That’s why we offer personalisation and custom candle labels on every candle, even those in our gift sets.

What particular challenges did you have to overcome in setting up your business, and since then?

All our candles are lovingly handcrafted in small batches at our HQ in London. Every part of the process, including the trimming, cleaning and packing is done by hand with love and care.

Why did you choose The Accountancy Partnership?

We had a strong recommendation from a good friend about your exceptional service and value.

Have we helped you overcome any challenges, and if so, how?

So far you have made our accounting hassle free, taking care of everything by just asking for some basic information.
