Since I was young I have had an obsession with candles, soaps and anything to do with self care rituals. But like many of us, I have become very aware of the products I use (aka. I'm pretty picky). I like to pay attention to ingredients, and try to buy local as much as possible.
Since I always have candles burning in my apartment I like to know that the ingredients are safe! Unfortunately many mass produced candles have iffy ingredients in them which you end up breathing in -- Yuck, that stresses me out! The same goes for other products like soaps & sprays – I like quality ingredients that are safe for my bod! Now is when I introduce my newest obsession: Woodlot!
I'm talking stunning candles, soaps, and mists, and I cant forget their lovely Palo Santo incense! Handmade in small batches with plant based natural oils, and scented with essential oils, these products contain no chemicals, or artificial ingredients! The candles are made with clean burning, petroleum-free coconut wax. The best part about this Vancouver based company is that each product is made with care using influence from the owners personal family traditions.
I'm super into the mists by Woodlot. Refreshing Mist with Lavender & Bergamot and Calming Mist with Rose & Palo Santo. These are perfect for using on your face and body, with ingredients such as witch hazel for amazing toning benefits, but also perfect for misting in your rooms, on your sheets, pillows and linens. The scents are so wonderful and therapeutic!
Each product has such organic smelling fragrance, with natural woodsy cedar and fir, to citrus, eucalyptus, vetiver and pachouli. One of my favourite scents is Flora; it comes in both a candle and soap! Inspired by Mount Pleasant, community gardens, market fruits and flowers. This scent burns so beautiful for a fresh and friendly scent. Notes of lavender, orange, bergamot, cedarwood, and patchouli (all my absolute favourites)!
Close runner up is Recharge. Its so invigorating and uplifting from the mint and rosemary. Try it in a candle or soap to wake yourself up!
I could literally go on and on about this line! They make your home lovely, also make perfect gifts, and once your done burning the candles, you can re-use the beautifully simple jars!
