Essential oils are distilled from certain varieties of plants, some coming from petals, others from stems, twigs, leaves, roots, trees, grasses or fruits .
Not only can essential oils be used to help with anxiety, doubt or fear, they can also be used to make a person more assertive, confident and creative. Aromatherapy is not just about stress and tension although of course it is hugely beneficial in these areas, it goes very deeply into the psyche on all levels of human experience. Essential oils are natures pharmacopoeia, fully able to deal with the mind in all it's aspects.
All of the essential oil used in lipsius candles is certified organic by the Soil Association which means that it has been produced to the highest ethical and environmental standards. The Soil Association's standards exceed the UK government's minimum requirements for organic products in many areas, but particularly in animal welfare, GM and the use of pesticides. Standards are constantly reviewed to ensure they deal with current issues.
