It all started when...
My father received a cancer diagnosis and soon after passed away. I was a full time researcher and work-a-holic. Working and studying full time, while taking care of a sick parent lead to chronic stress. Although our journeys may be different, I know what stress and pain feel like. This is my healing journey... and I'm grateful to be able to share it with you.
In my journey of healing, I pondered illness and the link between our external and internal worlds. I realised that the quality of the air we breathe, the food we eat, the thoughts we think are all linked to our own wellbeing. I believe that small steps in our lives and small changes in our environment can lead to an increase in wellbeing, promoting overall health.
At S Aromatherapy, we believe that the therapeutic properties of 100% pure essential oils extracted from plants are powerful tools to help us shift mood and mind states. They invoke the ability to create calm, a sense of ease and clarity as well as rejuvenate and uplift in a completely natural way.
Our candles are a synergistic merging of modern science and eastern wisdom, thoughtfully created to help you find balance and wellbeing. We hand pick raw, untreated natural ingredients including 100% pure essential oils (a massive 20-25ml per candle!) and sustainably sourced pure soy wax.
Fragrance oils and mineral (paraffin wax)...
The quality of the air we breathe is important to our overall wellbeing.
We do not use any fragrance oils in S Aromatherapy products. Fragrance oils are chemical mixture composed of some or all of the following, essential oils diluted with a carrier oil like propylene glycol, vegetable oil, or mineral (petroleum) oil, synthetic aroma chemicals (derived from petroleum, plant or animal sources), and aromatic resins. Burning fragrance oils may release allergenic ingredients into the air causing irritation and allergies, reducing the indoor air quality.
Unlike essential oils, fragrance oils do not contain any therapeutic constituents. Fragrance oils are much cheaper than pure essential oils, and are commonly used in candles.
Paraffin wax is derived from petroleum. It contains a number of carcinogenic compounds which are toxic air contaminants. They may trigger respiratory irritation and allergies due to the allergenic ingredients found in paraffin wax and thus reduce indoor air quality.
Soy wax is healthy and toxin free as it is free of petrochemical content, is non allergenetic.
S Aromatherapy candles do not contain any of the following ingredients which are used in typical candle making: scent booster, fragrance oils, synthetic scents, paraffin wax, binders.
