Aestas (Summer) incense is enchanting and mystical with benjamin tree resin with its vanilla-like aroma. Richly infused with florals and a hint of wood evokes the magic of midsummer in bloom.
Each incense cone burns for around 15 minutes, a short time out without watching the clock.
Ritual: The lighting of incense is a ritual, a connection to the elements often evoking a mental state, which goes far beyond the physical manifestation of it’s scent. Requiring fire to ignite and oxygen to burn, by consciously striking a match and lighting incense, there is an immediate connection to the air and earth. Light the tip of the incense cone and let the flame burn for a few seconds. Blow out the flame until the tip of the cone is glowing and the aromatic smoke is released into the air.
Each Essence + Alchemy candle is a unique scent, formulated with a complex blend of essential oils* to naturally fragrance the home. Candles are hand-poured into British made hand-blown glass with sustainably sourced natural rapeseed wax, pure essential oils and FSC certified wood-wick.
*Essential oils are naturally occurring in plants and trees and have been used for centuries to promote mental and physical well-being. Inhaling them stimulates the olfactory system, the part of the brain connected to smell and when their aroma molecules reach the brain they affect the limbic system, linked to emotions, heart rate, breathing and memory. In this way, essential oils can have a subtle holistic effect with true therapeutic well-being benefits.
