Aromatherapy Essential Oil Blends Now Available

Well, we just finished up at Shaker Woods and debuted our new Aromatherapy candles. They were received so wonderful ( we sold out!) that they will now become a mainstay at the shop. The first two fragrances we offered were Blissful and Harmony. Blissful is a blend of orange, eucalyptus, patchouli and ylang ylang oils and it smells just like Aveda's Shampure brand for those of you familiar with Aveda. Harmony is a blend of geranium, grapefruit, oak moss and cedarwood and has an earthy, slightly floral wonderful smell. These are made with 100% natural essential oils blended in our food grade US domestic soy vegetable wax thus making this our most natural - vegan friendly product.
Also, while we are on the note of natural, I'd like to take a minute to let you know why our product is not Organic. A lot of candle makers are making claims to have organic products which is very......misleading. You could have an organic soybean and organic essential oils but the process that it takes to turn the beans into soywax changes the chemical make-up of the bean thus making it no longer organic. I am trying to make an organic product in these new Aromatherapy Essential oils candles however I will not claim the are organic when they are not 100%. Thus using the term natural.
I hope to add two more blends for the fall - one being a lavender blend and something uplifting.
Our 11 oz glass tumbler will be gift boxed along with a card describing the oils used and a brief description of the benefits 14.95 ea. In additon we will have Aloe & Olive oil glycerine soaps to corrdinate with our Aromatherapy line. 4.00 ea.
This is good stuff!
