New season scented candles

SONY DSC

Just a little background info on some of our candle ingredients;

The everlasting flower Helichrysum angustifolium. Related to the helichrysums that
flower arrangers love to use. You’ve probably seen them covered in dust in arrangements
the scent is supposed to resemble burnt sugar and ham! Hopefully not reformed ham.

The sandalwood tree is semi parasitic so basicaly it sucks half the life out of its
host but keeps it alive so it can carry on living. The oil from it currently fetches
2000 dollars per kg.

The cedarwood tree is of Taiwanese origin but in China its been over harvested (shock horror), it has very fragrant decay resistant wood most often seen in the shed section in your diy superstore.
