Waxees: A Sensory Experience

My amazing friend, and sister-of-the-heart, Elize has started a business called Waxees. As the name suggests, it is a candle business (to begin with, because she has plans to expand her range of products). But these are not just any candles, they are soy wax hand-poured works of art, based on five mindfulness principles, fragranced with high-quality essential oils to offer the user a full sensory experience.

Waxees are non-toxic; they are biodegradable, contain no synthetic- or chemical additives, diffuse aroma naturally and have a longer burning time than their paraffin-wax counterparts. Added benefits are that the warm wax can be used in massage because of its soothing and moisturizing properties, leaving your skin being feeling luxurious. Each experience is available in various sizes to suit every budget, making Waxees the perfect gift for any occasion.

  1. Pause ~ A Reassuring & Calming Experience

A blend of floral- and mint essential oils, which create a reminder to pause, take a deep breath and reconnect with the composed, collected version of yourself.

  1. Kind Heart ~ An Uplifting & Joyful Experience

An aromatic blend of uplifting essential oils which will revitalize your mind and body, inducing a sense of bliss.

  1. Aware ~ An Invigorating & Energising Experience

A combination of warm, woody, earthy essential oils the help dispel tension, while creating a feeling of peace and relaxation.
