With the goal of “simply lightening the mood” The Care Pack Co. was founded by two friends who were separated during the lockdown. With a birthday just around the corner, a care package of soap, body oil and a candle was in order. Within 3-hours a business name, website domain and Instagram page were started. 72 hours and two late nights later final products, fragrances and label designs were complete. And today, we have a masterpiece collection of candles for our buying pleasure, including Gladys, Rona, Karen, Kimmy K, Miss America, and Britney. Our favourite, obviously, the Gladys.

The Gladys Candle

The star of the show, we can’t think of a better partner for a spot of 11 am press conferencing than the Gladys candle. With a spiced pear scent, they really hit the nail on the head in terms of smell. Most importantly, all these candles are hand-poured in Australia, so you’ll be supporting a small Aussie business while you’re shopping.

Scent: Spiced Pear
Size: 185g

The Rona Candle

Many Aussie’s will remember Australia Day 2020 when many of us sat back and literally drank Corona beer in a process of taking the piss out of the virus. Oh, how those pictures aged poorly. What won’t age poorly is this beautifully scented and illustrated ‘Rona’ candle. With half of Australia stuck inside, we can’t think of a better pick me up for someone special.

Scent: Amber, Sea Salt & Citrus
Size: 185g
Burn: 38-hour

The Karen Candle

Now, we understand that Father’s Day is only just around the corner, but there’s no problem in snagging an early gift for mum (we didn’t say it). While the Karen joke is a little played out at this point, it still gets a few chuckles here and there amongst the extended family. Maybe snag this one for a Christmas Day belter?! We should be out of lockdown by then… right?

Scent: Sweet Basil, Lime & Mandarin
Size: 185g
Burn: 38-hour

These three are our personal favourites, but the full range is available to purchase now via the link below.
