Currently working on a new aspect to add to my candle range – Essential Oils & Aromatherapy.
Essential oils are derived from plants, including their roots, flowers, stems and fruits. These oils have a wide variety of aromas, and these scents can have a great effect on our moods and feelings. Often smells can also link with old memories and transport us to another time & place.
Aromatherapy uses essential oils in a therapeutic way to help with many issues, from headaches to insomnia. I have used essential oils in soy candles that I make to help with my headaches – using calming oils such as lavender and basil.
Another great thing about essential oils is that when you buy the right products (100% pure) they are completely natural scents and are perfect for individuals that love scented candles, but cannot tolerate fragrance oils/blends that are often used in soy candles on the market.
