Health, fitness, and wellness
- Latest News
evolution34 was founded to help my client to achieve their Health, Fitness and Wellness goal by making small changes, that’s what I do through the nutrition programmes and food intolerance testing, Pilates body and mind movement, and once a person’s health and fitness are on track you can take time for you, you feel more relax and generally be in a better place of wellbeing. I originally wanted a scent for my Pilates classes, once I had this the nutrition and wellbeing blends came naturally.
My favourite brand since in my late teens when I discovered it is The White Company a little luxury in my life or to gift to my friends and family that is also affordable. This is what I wanted to create with my candle range, something that looks great, smells delightful and has a purpose to bring a little luxury into your home or a gift for someone you care about, as well as supporting your health, fitness and wellness and you’ll learn more about the oils and why I chose these further on.
The wax, the wick, and the oils
Why did I use Soy wax? Soy wax is non-toxic and cleaner burning being made with no toxins, carcinogens, or pollutants which means my candles are less likely to trigger allergies, which is important to me. This vegetable-based wax does not give off any harmful by-products or produce black soot.
Why did I use a Wood wick? A wood wick creates a beautiful crackling sound while burning. Wooden wicks are more sustainable than cotton wicks, as thousands of wicks can be found in a single tree. They give off a crackle like a fireplace and burn more evenly and cleanly than cotton wicks. A wood wick makes less soot than conventional wicks.
The glass jar and wooden lid are truly sustainable these can be used for storge after the candle has melted away. Or if you are local to me refilled and you take 15% off the original price for the refill…what’s not to love!
Each candle was handmade in Nottingham at Skin Solace. Each is 180g including 13ml of essential oils 8%, giving you a burn time of 32 hours.
There are three to select from or have all three, using the one most relevant to your mood at the time.
