Scent

Ginger has been used for thousands of years and has a long tradition for being a powerful health ingredient. Originating from the orient during the spice trade it entered Europe around 500BC and was used by the romans and Greeks for it’s powerful restorative and healing properties. As a fragrance material it has been used quite rarely but it’s scent is beautifully warm and spiced with a slight citrus edge that gives way to a tangy darkness that is alluring and intriguing. Buchu and a fresh green note make this fragrance rounded and balanced with an initial ginger hit giving way to a fresher green twist.

History

Candles have been burnt and used to fragrance a room for a thousand years or more with the first candles being made of tallow or bees wax. For many years candles were used to tell the time because of their reliable burn time and ease of use. Scented candles became popular in France in the 19th century with the rise of perfumeries and advances in essential oil extraction.

How to use

Light a match and hold to the natural wick for a few seconds until it catches. Each time, a candle must be burnt for a few hours before extinguishing. Never leave a candle unattended or extinguish before the suitable time as this can be dangerous and cause uneven brining of the candle. The entire surface of the candle should form a pool of melted wax. Before reigniting ensure the wax is totally reset and trim the wick to around a quarter of an inch to insure the candle is not over burnt and it burns down cleanly with no smoke or soot.
