      We often think of the scent and aroma of a natural candle when shopping for one. But the type of wax that the essential oils are infused in is another very important factor. Candles can be made out of a wide range of different waxes: paraffin wax (derived from the oil purification process from petroleum, coal or oil shale), palm wax, candelilla wax or beeswax, for example. Each type of wax has different properties that affect their performance, their toxicity and their sustainability.

      We choose to only use 100% soy wax in our natural candles. Soy wax is an entirely natural wax, derived from soybeans, which of course are plant-based. It is non toxic and burns more cleanly than many alternatives, and it does not give off any harmful byproducts. It is made from renewable resources — whereas paraffin wax is made from non-renewable fossil fuels. Soy wax also burns slower than paraffin wax, enabling the candles to burn for longer. Soy wax is also an excellent fragrance carrier, so the beautiful essential oils we infuse in the candles can be clearly felt without any chemical amplifiers.

      Although beeswax also has its own beneficial properties, choosing soy wax enables our candles to be fully suitable for vegans.

      Soy wax candles are vegan, and they produce a stronger, more consistent scent from the essential oils infused within, which lasts the full burn of the candle. Beeswax has its own aroma which can take over that of any other essential oils included. Beeswax is therefore better suited for unscented candles, to allow for the natural oil scent to be released into the air. Beeswax is made by bees, so it is not plant-based and not suitable for vegans.

      There is a wide range of essential oils that can be wonderful for candle making — with very different aromatherapeutic properties and benefits. Depending on the essential oils included, candles can have antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, cleansing, uplifting, energising, decongesting, relaxing, sedative properties, to name but a few. They also have delightfully unique scents, and there are infinite possibilities of blends and synergies between different essential oils.

      Our Collection of handmade, natural candles features a series of carefully chosen blends of essential oils infused into soy wax. You can browse the range here.
      Natural candles made with soy wax are arguably among the most fragrant — soy wax has a very neutral aroma and produces a stronger, more consistent scent from the essential oils diffused in it. Browse our delightfully scented, natural, handmade soy wax candles here.
      Hallways and living rooms benefit from pleasant and fresh aromas, perhaps more so than the spice and herb aromas of the kitchen or the more heavily scented fragrances we might use in other rooms. Citrus essential oils are particular favourites for hallways and living rooms, giving the impression of a clean, fresh environment.

      One of our favourites for a hallway or a living room would be our Lime, Bay & Juniper Berry Candle. It has a refreshing, balancing and energising scent with fresh woody and citrus notes. It naturally purifies the air and diffuses an invigorating and optimistic fragrance, whilst promoting mental clarity, focus and concentration thanks to rosemary essential oil in particular.

      Another lovely option for a hallway living room is our Mandarin & Neroli Candle. It has a wonderfully refreshing, uplifting and cheerful scent. It contains citrus essential oil (mandarin, bergamot, sweet orange and grapefruit), which are known to promote joy and rejuvenate the spirits — as well as smelling lovely and cleansing the air. This zesty candle also counts on delicately floral neroli as well as juniper berries to balance out the sweet, uplifting citrus notes. The deeper, spicy and woody base notes from juniper linger as the candle burns.
      We find that our Lavender & Basil Candle works beautifully in the bedroom, as part of a bedtime or meditation routine. It is infused with five pure essential oils: lavender, basil, may chang, bergamot and cedarwood. Calming and gentle, its distinct, fresh citrus notes balance out the woody and floral tones from lavender and cedarwood. It can also be used in a study to support working from home.
      For the bathroom, you may want to choose a candle with some antimicrobial essential oils to help keep it germ free. For example, our Mandarin & Neroli candle cleanses and purifies the air with natural antibacterial, antifungal and antioxidant properties. It has a wonderfully cleansing, refreshing, uplifting and cheerful scent. It contains citrus essential oils (mandarin, bergamot, sweet orange and grapefruit), which are known to promote joy and rejuvenate the spirits — as well as smelling lovely and cleansing the air. This zesty candle also counts on delicately floral neroli as well as juniper berries to balance out the sweet, uplifting citrus notes.
      In nature, aromas play a big part in attracting or deterring creatures of all sizes. In our homes, specific aromas can be used to deter unwanted visitors like mosquitoes and other insects — with no killing involved, which makes a nice change from so many products that not only kill the insects but also bring unwanted chemicals into our homes. Leave a candle near strategic entry points for the invaders — usually windows or doors. Mosquitoes and flies dislike lavender, geranium, basil, vetiver, eucalyptus lemon and patchouli, for example.

      Our Lavender & Basil Candle or our Rose & Geranium Candle would be delightfully scented ways to keep mosquitoes and insects at bay in your home.
      Scented candles can certainly help improve mood — it all depends on the essential oils that are contained in them and that will be released into the room when you burn them. Our Frankincense, Amber & Myrrh Candle for example is great to soothe stress, tension and anxiety, and to help bring calm, relaxation and groundedness. Our Mandarin & Neroli Candle has a sweet, fresh, zesty and floral scent, and is very uplifting and cheerful. It helps to ease fatigue, stress and headaches, and purifies the air in the process. Our Rose & Geranium Candle has a balancing, calming and soothing fragrance. It soothes stress, agitation and tension, relaxing both body and mind.

      To help you wind down, relax and get ready to sleep, using a natural candle containing lavender essential oil is the way to go.

      For example, we find that our Lavender & Basil Candle works beautifully in the bedroom, as part of a bedtime or meditation routine. It is infused with five pure essential oils: lavender, basil, may chang, bergamot and cedarwood. Calming and gentle, its distinct, fresh citrus notes balance out the woody and floral tones from lavender and cedarwood. It can also be used in a study to support working from home.

      Another lovely option for sleep is our Rose & Geranium Candle. It has a balancing, calming and soothing fragrance. It soothes stress, agitation and tension, relaxing both body and mind. A range of floral, fresh, fruity, woody and musky tones to turn any space into a relaxing aromatic haven.

      Sleep is a very personal time and what suits one person may not suit another, so try one or two scents out and find what works best for you.
      There are natural candles that have deep, woody, grounding scents reminiscent of cologne. For example our Frankincense, Amber & Myrrh candle is infused with seven pure essential oils, including frankincense, amber, myrrh, Scotch pine and patchouli. Reminiscent of smoky wood fires, incense and tobacco, this candle uses rich deep woody resins to create a grounding, healing and calming scent. Its captivating fragrance lingers long after the candle has been blown out. With its warming, cosy and relaxing scent, this candle is fantastic for meditation or for those shorter autumn and winter evenings.
