A Wondering Star daughter brought a gorgeous homemade gift of a candle.
She bought a lovely hand made pottery bowl from a local potter & then used soya candle wax & scents of her own choice to make a stunning candle.
She used neroli, lavender & May Chang (an ancient Chinese healing herb) to create a unique & lovely gift that smells as good as it looks.
How lovely is this?
Lavender or Lavandula Angustifolia, is a full-bodied steam-distilled oil from the flowering tops of the Lavender plant. Known for its many uses, Lavender essential oil is world renowned as one of the world’s most popular and versatile oils, and for good reason! Lavender has an incredibly sweet, floral, herbal scent and is also highly prized for its many therapeutic properties.
The smell of Lavender alone can help produce a calm, peaceful tranquil environment.Neroli
Neroli is the perfect essential oil for when you need a break from the world. This absolutely delightful and vibrant floral essential oil comes from orange blossoms found in Egypt. It is one of the most comforting and effective essential oils when dealing with grief, nervous tension, or exhaustion.
Bright, lemony, and energizing, May Chang is most commonly known for its usefulness in dealing with skin problems. May Chang has uplifting properties, and it has a strong effect on promoting mental and physical well-being.
A Wondering Star is very aware of environmental issues & so used waxes which are not harmful to both the environment & those breathing it in. Air quality in homes can be a health issue so this is something we need to be aware of; I have beneficial, air cleaning plants about the home because our winter homes are particularly bad because we don’t open our windows enough.
I have large pots of peace lilies, palms & aloe vera in our inglenook fireplace & the combination of intense greens & leaf shapes is very calming & I like to think that the air is clean too. I try hard to avoid harsh chemicals at home, you all know the ones that you can smell as soon as you walk in to a room. I also do not use any plug in air fresheners.
