Our essential oils are 100% pure, ethically sourced, cruelty free, vegan and are hand blended. Inhaling essential oils is the fasted route into the body. By breathing in essential oil vapours, the molecules are absorbed by the tiny hairs inside your nostrils which have receptors that transmit signals to the olfactory bulb as part your limbic system. So if we inhale essential oils, the stimulating properties will produce a response in the brain, for example inducing a calming effect, be uplifting or act as a stress reliever. Essential oils are natural products extracted from plants by processes such as steam distillation, solvent extraction and expressed oils. Commonly, candles and wax melts are made using fragrance oils which are synthetically made chemical scent compounds. These can cause skin to become dry and irritated and can cause hormone imbalance. Which is why, at Thora & Nell, we choose to strictly use only essential oils.
Our soy wax is 100% natural, non toxic and bio degradable. Soy wax also holds scent better than chemically produced paraffin wax. Burning Thora & Nell candles and wax melts are non toxic and are safe to use around animals and children! Soy wax may discolour over time due to natural essential oils.
