About Us

CocoaKimani Essentials is a DMV based company that promotes everyday self care and mental wellbeing. 

Mental health and self care are often seen as luxuries or "extras" that are seen as electives, not requirements. 

Self Care is defined as "the practice of taking an active role in protecting one's own well-being and happiness"; and it looks different for everyone. At CocoaKimani Essentials we promote "Everyday Self-Care". Accessible and realistic practices that everyone can do. Even actions as simple as lighting your favorite candle (cough cough) and pouring a big glass of wine after a long day, changing your self speak, or even just taking five minutes before you walk in to work to pray or speak affirmations onto yourself. Everyday Self Care is accessible to everyone and isn't a luxury, it's a necessity. 

Who We Are

CocoaKimani Essentials, LLC was founded by Kimani Aylor in June 2020. We are self financed, black owned, and woman owned. 

Why We Do It

I created CocoaKimani Essentials during a time where I was really struggling with caring for myself and my own mental wellness. The funny thing about creating a brand based on self care and mental health is that it forces you to take your own advice, look in the mirror, and work on yourself. I've seen the difference that "little" positive changes can make and I know the daily struggle of remembering to care for yourself and be positive. I only want to help bring that to others in whatever way I can. 

What We Do

CocoaKimani Essentials is committed to promoting "Everyday Self-Care" and mental well being through our messaging and products. Our candles and wax melts are all natural and handmade with love. They boast inspirational, relatable, and funny names and quotes as a small step to brighten each day. 

Our Products 

I believe that self care isn’t just skin care and starts from the inside out. That is why all of the ingredients in our products are not only aesthetically pleasing, but are good for you inside as well. All of our products are free of carcinogens, mutagens, reproductive toxins, organ toxins, acute toxins, and any chemicals included in California's Prop 65 list that are common in more mainstream fragrance products. We are continually working to make our company as environmentally friendly and health conscious as possible.

Our packing peanuts are even made from a water soluble, non-toxic cornstarch to cut down on waste.
