The creation of the Infusionist Lavender Aromatherapy Candle….the balance and calm the mind.
The Infusionist aims to be as ethical and sustainable as possible. Green, not mean is my motto. Eco-friendly aromatherapy candles are part of the well being products. With these, I try to cut down the carbon miles and synthetic fragrances that can cause a host of problems for the customer.
By sourcing all the candle ingredients either locally or from local businesses, this is one way of me for doing my bit for the planet.
The Lavender Aromatherapy candle contains Soy Wax (derived from plants and burns cleaner than paraffin wax which is commercially cheaper and not as environmentally friendly), a natural cotton wick (not lead), and natural Lavender essential oil (not synthetic fragrances which can be over powering at times) and finally locally sourced lavender from lavender fields (the idea is that once the candle begins to burn, the heat forces the lavender bud to release it’s own natural oil.
Lavender harvesting only happens once a year. Last year I source my Lavender from Hampshire. This year I sourced the Lavender from Carshalton, Surrey to keep it closer.
The Lavender has to be hand tied, dried and the buds removed by hand and stored in an airtight container to keep fresh. You can see me during the process below:
