Our intention rests in every element of our creations.
From Nisha's artworks, the tactile texture of the hand-iron-branded lid, the comforting crackling of organic wood wicks, to the translucent label that warms and glows, alongside a dancing flame...
100% PURE ESSENTIAL OILS
Not just safe to breathe, our candles are aromatherapeutic. All Amavasya candles contain almost a shot glass of essential oils(!). These oils have cleansing properties for mind, body & soul.
Pure essential oil candles are concerningly rare.
Many "natural candle" brands tend to opt for "naturally-derived" fragrances, approximately a tenth of the cost.
We switched to pure ingredients early on our journey, after experiencing headaches from such "natural" fragrances. We were shocked to find (buried) in the fine print, that the majority of formulas are in fact chemically enhanced.
We haven't looked back since.
No silicones, No parabens, No propylene glycol, No ethanolamines, No PEG, No denatured alcohol, No mineral oil, No petrolatum/paraffin wax, No artificial fragrances, No additives, No animal by-products, No animal testing, No GMO's
PURE COCONUT SOY WAX
Our natural wax burns for approximately double the time of most alternatives, and is free of Paraffin's toxic qualities.
