What are essential oils?

Essential oils are fragrant oils extracted from different parts of plants, by the process of distillation. Such oils have more power than dried plants and are the main agent in natural medicine. The ancient Egyptians, Chinese and ancient Indian science ayurveda, for the preservation of a healthy mind and body, relied on the power of essential oils obtained from plants. Each essential oil contains hundreds of antibacterial, antiviral ingredients that can penetrate our body through the respiratory system. They are easily absorbed through the skin and have a beneficial effect on the nervous and lymphatic systems. In addition to having a pleasant smell, essential oils have therapeutic, psychoemotional and energetic effects.

I believe in the power that fragrances have and the way they affect our mind and body, and I made these combinations of essential oils because of the therapeutic and aromatic properties they have. For the production of aromatherapy candles I use exclusively therapeutic essential oils. Naia Blanka candles are made from natural products and therefore safer to use than candles made from different types of waxes and synthetic fragrances, but keep in mind that essential oils are highly concentrated and you need to be careful when using them near children or pets. Pregnant women and epileptics should avoid some types of essential oils. The risks of using such candles are far less than when it comes to using essential oils in diffusers, but if you are not sure if they are safe for you, it is best to consult a doctor. If you are allergic to any food/plant from which one of the essential oils is made, do not use a candle that contains such oils.
