Spruce | Cedar | Balsam Soy Candle
Our Spruce candle has been described as smelling like a Christmas tree in a tin, and it certainly does! Peru balsam essential oil, with its sweet, slightly spicy, creamy vanilla-like aroma, complements the woody base of cedar and refreshing top notes of spruce.
The inspiration for this festive blend came from George's younger days (a time when he modelled himself on Van-Damme or Seagal, or probably a dodgier mixture of the two!) when he would spend long days with his Grandpa felling trees in the lush evergreen spruce forests of the Czech Republic.
Bunnies & Zen says: If you need to de-stress during the hectic Christmas period, then make sure some 'me time' is at the top of your list. At the start of each day, light your candle and take a few moments to sit in stillness and silence to reconnect with your centre. If you make the time to take care of yourself, you'll find you have more to give to others.

Essential oil benefits
Cedar is a Semitic word that means 'the power of spiritual strength'. It represents a symbol of content faith. Nervous tension and anxious states benefit significantly from its calming and soothing action, making it a valuable aid to meditation.
Spruce oil has potent antibacterial, anti-infectious, antiviral and antiseptic properties, making it a perfect oil to burn during the winter months. Because of its calming effects and pleasant earthy scent, spruce oil is also a favourite in meditation rituals, such as grounding.
The balsam of the Peru tree was used medicinally by the Aztecs and the Incas to treat asthma, colds, flu, bronchitis and coughs. When vaporised, Balsam Peru oil kills bacteria in the air.
Instructions for Use
When lighting for the first time, allow the wax to melt to the sides of the container, ensuring a consistent burn. Maximum recommended burn time is 4 hours per burn. Always trim the wick to 5mm after each use.
