Warm up with woody undertones!

Making your house smell delicious makes you feel a little more cozy this time of year! Turn it into the perfect retreat with the addition of a warming scented candle.

When the nights get darker and the temperature becomes colder, try one of our essential oil blends containing vanilla.  It’s indulging and nurturing and quite appropriate for this time of year.

One of my all time favourite candles is our Unwind & Dream Spa Candle.  It actually works… layered with amazing lavender notes and rounded off with vanilla.  Yum!

Lacking Concentration?

Lemongrass (Cymbopogon)  is a perennial plant in the Poaceae grass family and is native to the tropical and subtropical area of India, Cambodia, Indonesia, China, Guatemala, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. It flourishes here where the soil is slightly sandy and the climate moist and warm.

This herb has an upright habit and grows in large clumps to a mature height of about a metre. Its leaves are bright green with sharp edges much like regular lawn grass only larger.

Lemongrass essential oil is extracted from partially dried leaves by a process of steam distillation. The oil is yellow to amber in color and has a very fresh, citrus-like aroma that smells like a very sweet fresh grass.

The fresh and earthy scent of lemongrass can boost confidence, mental health and help to keep depression at bay.

Our Energise & Focus spa candle combines lemongrass with other oils to provide a wonderful boost of energy, useful for study, concentration and clarity.

Best with essential oils

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to assist to balance and support the body and mind.

Essential oils (also known as volatile oils) are the basic materials of aromatherapy. They are made from fragrant essences found in many plants. These essences are made in special plant cells, often under the surface of leaves, bark, or peel, using energy from the sun and elements from the air, soil, and water. If the plant is crushed, the essence and its unique fragrance are released. Remember when you brush past a lemon scented geranium bush it smells divine.  Or when you pick lavender flowers how amazing does that smell.

When essences are extracted from plants in natural ways, they become essential oils. They may be distilled with steam and/or water, or mechanically pressed. Oils that are made with chemical processes are not considered true essential oils.

Fragrant plants have been used in healing practices for thousands of years across many cultures, including ancient China, India, and Egypt. The history of modern aromatherapy began in the early 20th century, when French chemist Rene Gattefosse coined the term “aromatherapy” and studied the effects of essential oils on many kinds of diseases. In the 1980s and 1990s, aromatherapy was rediscovered in Western countries as interest in natural medicine began to grow.

Today we can harness the olfactory power of essential oils in our everyday living. When we inhale the scent of essential oil, the aroma can diffuse into our bloodstream via your lungs, and subsequently impact our mood. Its fragrance can also affects our limbic system located in our brain, which controls both memories and emotions. Perhaps unconsciously this is why we have strong reactions to certain aromas.

handmade pledge

The giver of a handmade gift has avoided the parking lots and long lines of the big chain stores in favour of something more meaningful. If the giver has purchased the gift, she feels the satisfaction of supporting an artist or crafter directly.

The recipient of the handmade gift receives something that is one-of-a-kind, and made with care and attention that can be seen and touched. It is the result of skill and craftsmanship that is absent in the world of large-scale manufacturing.

Join us and take the pledge to buy hand made this Mother’s Day.

We will be at the Manly Markets Sunday April 14 with a table full of handmade candles for all personalities and individual tastes! See you there in perfect autumn weather. Cheers.

Perfect Gift For Mother’s Day

Celebrate Mother's Day With A Scensoya Candle
Celebrate With A Scensoya Candle

Did you know that Mother’s Day is an American invention, first celebrated back in 1908? Today it is an internationally recognised holiday celebrated by millions all over the world.

Apparently in some countries it is potentially offensive to one’s mother not to mark Mother’s Day, whilst in other countries, it is a little-known festival possibly celebrated by immigrants only.

Here in Australia, the thought of giving gifts to mothers on Mother’s Day was started by Mrs Janet Heyden of Sydney, back in 1924 as a charitable gesture that now has become the norm.

The Chrysanthemum flower is the typical flower of choice for Mother’s Day, as the flower is naturally in season during May, and as it ends in ‘mum’, it seems appropriate don’t you think!

However, if you prefer a gift that will last longer than the vase of flowers, consider one of our beautiful floral scented candles.

Express your love for your Mother or someone special this May 12th. All orders placed through our website will receive a BONUS gift with our thanks. Hurry limited stock applies.
