Essential oils are sourced from nature.
Essential oils are the natural oils of botanical ingredients such as plants and flowers, extracted from their petals, stems, bark, needles, resin and rinds. These oils capture the aroma of the original source, without any adjustment or adulteration, as well as hundreds of other naturally occurring compounds (such as limonenes and terpenes) that benefit your physical, and emotional wellbeing. However, the lengthy extraction process (distilled using steam or cold pressing) means essential oils are more expensive to create, give them a gentle, more authentic scent throw, and can only be made from real plants or flowers.
Most candles use 'fragrance' oils
Manufactured by isolating scent molecules in a laboratory. Mass produced, and giving a potent ‘scent throw’. Often formulated to provide scents with no naturally occurring counterparts: think ‘Clean Linen’, ‘Fresh Rain’, or even ‘Tuscan Leather’.
Did you know that most luxury candle companies use these synthetic fragrance oils in their products? The White Company, Jo Malone and Diptyque all do this, as do many others
Their versatility and inexpensiveness make fragrance oils the ingredient of choice for most of these companies.
Only essential oils at HAN.
Essential oils capture all the complexity and character of each scent, and have therapeutic properties that benefit physical and mental health. The challenge of sourcing sustainable and high quality essential oils means that every HAN candle takes more time and care to create.
We believe every scent should be expressed as nature intended.
