Founded in 2012, we started out as a 100% NZ owned and operated family business that sold soaps and candles at local markets.
As I delved deeper into crafting a range of body care products, I struggled to find many of the ingredients that were used in the online recipes and videos I was following. This led me to importing these ingredients from overseas, which in turn led me to another problem.
In order to be cost effective I had to buy large quantities, but I couldn’t use it all myself. This is how our original company Zen Designs was born. I started selling all my left over ingredients and very quickly discovered a need in our crafting community for a variety of ingredients which weren’t readily available in NZ at that time.
Fast forward to 2023. We now have New Zealand’s largest range of premium quality fragrance oils.
We changed our name to Zen Aroma to better reflect our love of fragrance, and because we believe scent is the number one reason people are attracted to candles, soaps and all your wonderful hand made home and body products.
We believe in offering high quality, products and exceptional service.
Even though I don’t sell soaps or candles any more, I like to think that our customers can find a little ‘zen’ when making their own products.
