Cynthia Baur's love affair with aroma began as a child; her mum baking bread, Frankincense in church, freshly cut grass on a summer's day. It is, therefore, no wonder that after a successful career in the fashion business, Cynthia turned her mind (and sense of smell) to making exquisite candles and ambient home aromas for everyone to enjoy.
Living Light has recently celebrated its 18th anniversary, but Cynthia's passion for candles, aroma, design and craftsmanship continues to blossom and evolve with each new discovery she and her Golden Bay-based team makes in the world.
All of their candles are made from 100% Soy, Plant and Beeswax, and they have spent literally hundreds of hours testing for the perfect cotton wick to match the fragrance and wax combination - now that's dedication!
When you buy a Living Light candle or ambient product, be assured that it has been crafted in New Zealand with love, care and excellence.

Elizabeth Kingston has retired from the work force, but not from her lifetime speciality of hand knitting gorgeous gifts for newborn babies.
Elizabeth was only nine when she began a lifelong hobby of hand knitting.
As time went on and more babies came into the world through her own family, friends and work mates, Elizabeth produced beautiful timeless hand knitted sets, comprising of Jacket, Hat, and Bootees for the newborn.
Elizabeth’s true passion is using traditional patterns, and modernising them for today’s Mums. Many are unique and exclusive and all are handcrafted for anyone who adores and wishes to pamper newborn babies.
