The Story

In 2016, tired of purchasing candles scented with overpowering and headache-inducing synthetic fragrances and frustrated with the lack of natural, eco-friendly alternatives available, Amanda Cochran had the idea to make her own Aromatherapy Candles scented using only 100% pure essential oils.
Beginning with a range of hand poured candles made with a plant-based blend of eco-friendly soy wax and bespoke, 100% pure essential oil blends, but with a vision to build a brand that would provide a supported creative space and a launchpad for other likeminded makers & artisans in the region; Amanda began trading as The Grampians Goods Co.
"I wanted to create a brand that would celebrate and reflect the lifestyle here in the Grampians and rural Victoria. To create a connection to that through sensory products; aromatherapy candles, skincare made with locally-sourced ingredients and home wares that tell story about where we live, our surroundings and our environment. I wanted to curate collections of products that evoke feelings of joy and a sense of adventure through the art of style and scent; a vehicle to share stories of the rugged landscape, the rich heritage and the local produce and producers of the region. To use thoughtfully created and curated products as a conduit, inspiring you in the simplest of moments, transporting you to a place, a scent, a memory, every time you light a Grampians Goods Co. candle, snuggle in a tartan wool blanket, nurture yourself with clean skincare."
The lifestyle brand stays true to its original vision with collections of thoughtfully curated homewares, bath & body products and handcrafted goods and continues to evolve through various collaborations with locally-based artists, artisans and producers who draw inspiration from the rural landscape, the majestic wonder of the Grampians mountain range and the unique heritage of the region.
The founder Amanda resides near Dunkeld with her 3 young children and an awe-inspiring vista of the Southern Grampians skyline.

“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.”
