The Story Behind our Natural Christmas Scent
“It wasn’t long after I started making natural candles while living in New Zealand that I decided I wanted to make a natural Christmas candle. It was in the run-up to Christmas and I was determined to make a candle that reminded me of Christmases back home in Scotland where it is traditionally cold.
During the festive period in the Northern Hemisphere scents dominate the time of year when it is cold and dark and the need to be uplifted, warmed, and revived is needed.
I looked at the scents I personally loved at Christmas, the ones I remembered as a child, the ones that screamed happiness, warmth, and fun.
From my learning of scent blending, I needed to combine the different groups of scents to form one amazing smell that just said Christmas. I knew I needed a wood scent, a citrus scent, and a spice or two. After much trial and error with blending different scent combinations, the winner was clear: Cedarwood, Orange, Cinnamon, and Clove.
I have been making the same natural Christmas candle since 2014 and then other products each year with this particular scent that is loved by all ages!
