"Where did the name Lolablue come from?"  

'Lola' was a nickname given to Jamie by her best bud Pete, referring to her love of Barry Manilow and the music of the 70's. 'Blue' because our planet is called "The Blue Planet" and respecting Mother Earth in all we do is a huge part of the company's philosophy. Recently a customer told us Lola stands for...

Love one. Love all. We agree.

Our founder Jamie Lovern is extremely passionate about where we source our raw ingredients.  All of our natural raw ingredients are ethically sourced/fair trade from sustainable small farms and minimally-processed, making sure the natural health benefits are maintained.  Our raw ingredients are either organic and/or natural (certificate of analysis) to be free from pesticides/herbicides.  All of our essential oils are 100-percent pure, also with a certificate of analysis.  All of our fragrances are phthalate-free, as well as free of carcinogens, mutagens, reproductive and organ toxins.  We work with suppliers who are constantly pushing the envelope to create fragrances to be as clean as possible.

We DO NOT test on animals ever. We only test on family & friends.

Founded in 2003 by Jamie Lovern. Jamie graduated with her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Ringling College of Art & Design and spent 12 years in the corporate world as an award winning graphic designer. 

It all started with candles. Being a candle lover, she soon learned about how toxic regular paraffin wax candles are for our health & environment. She started making soy candles for friends and family, everyone loved them and wanted more. Being a little burned out in the corporate world, she decided to start a side-hustle making soy candles and use her skills as a graphic designer for all marketing and packaging, Lolablue was born. After the birth of her son, she decided to jump ship from her career to spend more time with her family and begin building her own business.

In addition to creating quality products, Jamie is very involved with the local community of North Port. She sat on the Board of Directors of the North Port Chamber of Commerce from 2014-2020.
