Candles are without a doubt a call for celebration, and over the course of human civilization, candles have been utilized for many purposes. Although originally used as a light source, in current times candles primary function as a form of aromatherapy. Whether it be for relaxing after a stressful day, as decoration during a dinner party, for setting the mood with your special someone, or in times of power outages, candles are still deemed a necessity to every household. Essentique’s new upcoming all natural, soy candle, named Candela, scented with natural pure rose essential oil, makes the perfect addition to anyone’s collection of products.
Why should you choose soy candles? There are many different types of wax used in commercial products, the most common being paraffin wax. Paraffin is the least expensive and may seem like the best choice, but this is far from true. Soy wax candles not only burn longer than paraffin candles, but are also derived from natural vegetables, whereas paraffin is a refined gasoline by-product. At Essentique we preach natural beauty and protecting our wonderful Earth, and soy wax is 100% biodegradable (whereas paraffin is not!) And on top of all of that, soy wax is superior to paraffin in releasing fragrance, due to the lack of toxins and chemicals that are typically released in paraffin during the burning process. Soy wax is clearly the better option in terms of performance, appearance, and safety when it comes to choosing the right candle.
Essential oils are pure plant extracts known to be used in scenting, flavoring, and even healing through aromatherapy. Oftentimes, commercial products are scented with fragrance oils, which are synthetically produced chemical scent compounds. To launch Candela we decided to go with the most luxurious scent: Rose. Rose’s use in aromatherapy is an effective way to provide relaxation in stressful times. Additionally, rose oil eases anxiety, stress, and depressive symptoms. Rose is most commonly known, however, for its romantic association. Both the flower and scent are aphrodisiacs , and a rose scented candle is the perfect way to set the mood!
While this lovely rose scented candle is the first of its kind to reach Essentique’s shelves, it will definitely not be the last, so keep an eye out for the many more magnificent scents to come. Do yourself and our Earth a favor by choosing Essentique, and regardless of where you are in life, celebrate all the beautiful things, including yourself, with Candela.
