About Our Values

Started in 2020 by Viviani Natiele, Botanica by Viviani Natiele is a home-grown business that is founded on the core principals of quality, fairness and transparency.

Working only with 100% coconut wax flakes, every single candle is still made by hand from beginning to end. The candle fragrances the team creates are close to nature with un-fussy, recognisable scents that are comforting and familiar. Minimising the environmental impact of the business is at the forefront of every decision and plastic-free packing and re-filling are closely focussed on. 

Our products are ethically sourced by suppliers in NZ, vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, GMO-free and palm-oil free.



Candle Safety

Ensuring the safe and proper use of our candles is our number one priority and we advise you follow the below steps. 

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended

  • Never burn a candle for longer than 4 hours at a time

  • Burn candle out of reach of children and pets

  • Always leave at least 10cm between burning candles

  • Do not burn candles on or near anything that can catch fire

  • Do not place candles in a draught

  • Trim wick to 5mm before lighting

  • Don’t burn a candle all the way down. We recommend leaving 5mm of wax in the container

  • Always snuff out the candle. Do not blow out

  • Keep the wax pool clear and clear of matches and other debris to avoid flaring
