ESSENTIAL OILS

 Essential oils are naturally occurring substances found in different types of plants. Research on aroma reveals that we respond emotionally more to smell than to any of our other senses. Because of this, aromatherapy enables us to benefit from the special properties of pure essential oils.

Only 100% natural essential oils are used in our HOOF & PAW candles which have a positive, therapeutic effect on our wellbeing.

Unless stated otherwise, most candles include fragrance oils. Fragrance oils are man-made, synthetic and unfortunately harmful to the environment and yourself. There is no place in our candles for paraffin waxes, petroleum products, animal wax content, artificial colours or synthetic fragrances.

Here's a little more about the essential oils used in each candle and how they can benefit us.
