Pandarra is built from a love of fragrance and scents and love remains one of our core values, along with mindfulness and a deep respect of the ingredients we use and where they come from – and our beautiful customers using them.
Pandarra means “Sky” in the beautiful Indigenous Australian language and we believe the sky is the limit. It envokes hope and intrigue – and demands an appreciation for the natural world. We love that at night, the sky is full of stars.
There is nothing more soothing than watching a flame. I grew up outdoors and my family would often take us camping and my love of sitting around a campfire with family and friends, appreciating the natural world, comes back to me everytime I light a candle.
Through a chaotic period of my life, I needed to centre and to find balance. I needed time to be creative and pouring candles is the art that I needed. Enjoying a room filled with beautiful scents, burning off a candle flame, is the calm I enjoy. I endeavour to put all my emotion and love into each and every candle.
I didn’t start this endeavour with any sort of aspirations that it would become more than just a mindful way of appreciating the scents of nature, and finding balance, in my own home. But I hope that you will love the emotional connection to the natural world through fragrance, as much as we do.
We’re constantly experimenting, testing and learning. Tell us what you like and don’t like and help us grow!
Love Tara (& Tyler and Mitchell) xx
