Why Essential Oils?
At Palm Lights, I work only with 100% aromatherapy grade essential oils. Essential oils(EO) are aromatic essence of certain plants, trees, fruits, flowers, herbs, and spices. These oils have been traditionally distilled since 4000BC. Closer at home, I grew up seeing and using essential oils as an alternative source of healing. Steam inhalations with Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils to clear congestion, Lavender essential oil for cuts and bruises, Chamomile for digestion and sleep; there was a healing EO for everything. Is it any wonder that it became my first choice to scent the candles?
I wanted to share the power and therapeutic effects of these natural oils. A strong sense of smell and an intuitive knowledge of blends were my guide. After experimenting for months, I was able to create stabilized recipes of hand-blended oils. I source only the purest, most ethically viable, sustainably farmed essential oils. Although pure essential oils are rare and expensive, they result in clean burning candles.
