I have always wanted to introduce my own line of products. With a desire to make something that suited my personality. Hand-carved products that were either ornamental or functional fit these criteria. However, with a passion for all things natural. I set out to create something from organic wax so that I was contributing to a healthier world.
In my journey, I experimented with soy wax to make candles and these were nothing special. Just the basics. From there I decided to make something with essential oil scents that would give a pleasant but not overpowering aroma. These little heart-shaped melts are the perfect size just to place one over an oil burner.
At the moment we have scents of star anise and cinnamon which was inspired by my love of freshly baked biscuits over the Christmas season. They are very festive and look absolutely stunning. As well as smelling divine, they look great and host many potential health benefits. Studies suggest that Star Anise alone has potent compounds that can be used to treat coughs and the flu. Whilst also alleviating digestion, nausea, gas, bloating and constipation.
If you compare one of those natural melts with all of the potential advantages to an average synthetic fragrance based by-product. There is literally no comparison at all. Not only is a generic product harmful, they usually don’t even smell all that great. Some may disagree and of course, you are entitled to your opinion. But one of the reasons that I searched for something positive is because as a teenager the aftershaves and perfumes that I had been given as a gift seemed to always give me a headache.
Moving on to our other scent which is Patchouli. This scent is commonly used by the stereotype ‘hippies’. According to lush, this scent is used to mask the smell of marijuana. Nonetheless, patchouli is strong but smells amazing. As with most essential oils, it also comes with so many benefits and is a natural anti-inflammatory with antibacterial, antifungal properties, as well as an insecticide.
The market is seeing a rise in Patchouli oil. It is now being used as a deodoriser in natural beauty products. If you have any bad smells in your home, patchouli is sure to get rid of them.
