What are the different variables of pure essential oil blends?

- Pure Essential Oil Blend
A pure essential oil blend is an organic infusion of the finest essential oils. It is undiluted, unadulterated and blended just for
you. It can be used in your diffuser (3-5 drops, depending on diffuser size, for whole water capacity), in your skincare, applied
directly on the skin (patch test first) or as you please. It is very effective with the tunnelling method or for an instant energy
change. When we diffuse an essential oil, we passively ingest the molecules in the air. As they enter our bloodstream, we are
benefitting from the intelligence and healing properties of the blend. Bring or send back your bottle for a same blend refill and
receive €1.50 off your purchase price! Usually comes with a dropper and pipette enclosed. 
- Infused Essential Oil Blend
An infused essential oil blend is a pure essential oil blend infused with an organic carrier oil. Organic Carrier Oils have many
benefits (click here for full list) and they help reach larger surface areas without compromising much on the potency of your
blend. These usually have roller tops and can be easily applied on pulse points, back of the neck (largest pores), soles of the
feet (largest pores) and problem areas. As we apply our blend in through the largest pores, it is said that it enters the
bloodstream in as little as a few minutes. Emotional blends are very effective with this application as we are optimising the
ability to harmonise a symptom. Science states three times a day is sufficient, any more is placebo – which as we know has
its own magnificent effects also! Add to your notes at checkout if you would like a different top enclosed - pipette, roller ball,
spray, serum pump, dropper cap. Bring or send back your bottle for a same blend refill and receive €1.50 off your purchase
- Luxury Mist
A luxury mist is your pure essential oil blend infused with a floral water. These are great for hard to reach areas, fast
absorbency, aura mists, room mists, body sprays, linen and pillow fragrances. They are all natural and can be used on the
skin. It will be stated on each product what floral water is used. Very often in mists we use witch hazel water because it gives
the blend very good vibrancy. As our products are pure and potent, when this become half full you can refill with some
distilled filtered water, twice. Give it a couple of hours to re-infuse and you are ready to go again! Add to your notes at
checkout if you would like a different floral water to what is stated. Click on this link for the list available. Bring or send back
your bottle for a same blend refill and receive €1.50 off your purchase price!
Love this blend so much? Why not add it to an organic body custard or other skincare.
Did you know, you can also create your own!
Close lid tightly during uses. It is best to store your pipette separately. If you are using your product with the pipette on
frequent usage, ensure the pipette is empty when placing back into your product. This will prevent your pipette from
degenerating. It is advisable to patch test product before use. Do not ingest. Keep out of direct reach from children. Store in a
cool dry place. Take necessary precautions when using other medicines and during pregnancy.
An essential oil wouldn’t typically be used on an oil burner as its medicinal healing benefits will be burned off. We would use a
fragrance oil on an oil burner as it blooms with heat and evokes the sensory organs for you to respond and feel a certain way.

Where is my previously purchased blend on the website?

When we revamped the website, we decided to feature the bestsellers instead of the
thousands of blends available to make it easier to shop. As I am sure you know, there are
hundreds of thousands of variables that can be made.
If you purchased a blend that we had featured previously, it would be our pleasure to make
it for you again. It simply means, it isn’t pre-made. Get in touch with us or click on ‘Create
Your Own’ and we will have that blend with you soon.

Tips on Candle Care

  • Burn candles on a heat resistant surface away from drafts
  • For the first burn, let the candle melt to the edge for a smooth surface.
  • Feel free to make a wish, each time you blow out / extinguish your candle.
  • Trim any excess wick for a consistent clean burn
  • Upcycle your candle jar or return it to us and receive money off your next purchase.


Q: My wick won’t stay lit on first lighting


A: On the first lighting, circulate the flame around the wick and leave once the flame has caught to the wood wick. Alternatively, it could take a couple of lightings otherwise for it to stay lit until it reaches the wax.


Q My wick won’t stay lit in candle


A: Dab away or drain excess melted wax from the area around the wick to give it enough space to burn. Remember it's not the wood fueling your candle's flame, it's the wax



Q: My flame is smouldering


A: Drain away a little wax from around the wick with a spoon and watch it increase its flame, it is drowning and just needs a little space to shine!
