Can you share a bit about your business and what you do?
Kumalma was founded and created with healing in mind. We currently hand pour soy candles in small batches. We believe our candles are a good tool to invoke peace and calm within your sacred space. We focus on being eco-conscious whenever we can, and we’ve been able to source recycled and compostable packing materials. We are a brand that cares about bringing awareness to mental health and normalizing self-care. We hope our candles will be a reminder that you are not alone, even during your darkest days.
When and why did you decide to start your new business?
The idea was formed about a year ago. We believe that we can offer value to people’s lives and peace of mind for supporting a business that strives to limit its carbon footprint.
What do you love most about running your own business?
The freedom to be creative and not be held back by executives laser-focused on the bottom line.
What are your overall goals for your business?
We want to slowly offer different product lines that resonate with people’s individualities while staying true to our roots as a Filipina-American founded company.
What services do you provide for anyone who may want to reach out to you/work with you?
We currently have our hands full with working on small-batch releases and future projects that we plan to release within the next year, so we cannot offer custom orders or private labeling. However, we hope to provide that in the near future as we get a better, more efficient system going.
