Essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts which capture the very essence of a plant’s scent. They are made by steaming or pressing various parts of the plant like its flowers, leaves, fruit or bark. Essential oils are highly valued for their therapeutic effects on the mind and body, also known as aromatherapy. When we inhale the scent molecules from essential oils, they travel from the olfactory nerves of our nose right to the emotional center of the brain - the amygdala. Some of the effects these oils can have are relaxing, invigorating, uplifting or grounding. Learn more about our exclusive blends here.
As such, we have taken great care to ensure that the essential oils you add to your Mylumi candles are of the finest and purest quality. They are never diluted and no synthetic additives have been added to enhance its fragrance. They are as pure as nature intended.
It is also crucial to us that all our essential oils have been sustainably sourced to ensure that the plants and trees they come from are never endangered but responsibly harvested. Equally important to us is to make certain that no natural habitats are ever destroyed while harvesting so that wildlife are never displaced from their homes.
We do all we can so that you can enjoy your Mylumi aromatherapy candles with a good conscience. Join us on an aromatic journey around the world as you explore some of our precious essential oils.
