Our aromatherapy candles are handmade entirely with natural soy wax and infused with a blend of essential oils. Essential oils are the oils which are extracted directly from the plants. This means that they are suitable for vegans.
Unless otherwise stated, the fragrance in candles will usually be made from a synthetic source. This is because 'chocolate gingerbread' or 'strawberry shortcake' for example doesn’t have an essential oil source. Also, this doesn’t mean that lemongrass, mandarin or neroli will not be synthetic either – it’s a cheaper way of producing candles with similar scents.
So why does it matter? Firstly, anything synthetic means that it has been manufactured, involving the addition of potentially harmful chemicals and toxins. Much research has been done in recent years and findings have shown that many of these chemicals have been found to be carcinogenic, attributed to asthma attacks and much more.
In addition to the synthetic fragrance, and again, unless clearly stated otherwise, most candles bought on the high street will be made from paraffin wax. This is a wax, made from paraffin, which is a by-product of the petroleum industry. As it burns, this releases 'petro-chemicals' from the substance into the atmosphere.
What is an Aromatherapy candle? Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of plant-derived, aromatic essential oils to promote physical and psychological well-being and is used as part of a holistic treatment approach. Aromatherapy can be used in a number of different ways, but the lighting of a candle works by the inhalation of the scents working on the emotional part of the brain in order to relax, balance or uplift the mood creating a sense of wellbeing.
Our candles contain no added toxins, no synthetic fragrance & no petro chemicals. We use a 10% blend of essential oils, then poured by hand into the beautiful glass containers which give a gorgeously warming glow as they burn. We use a cotton & linen wick, burning with less soot.
This is a wellbeing treatment for using in the home. Available in: 30cl single wick white glass jar...£20 50l triple wick white glass jar...£29.50
