The Power of Scented Candles for Aromatherapy

The Power of Scented Candles for Aromatherapy

Welcome to Ahuru, your go-to online aromatherapy store in New Zealand! At Ahuru, we are passionate about promoting self-care for women, and one of our most beloved products is our collection of scented candles. In this article, we will delve into the reasons behind our choice of essential oils, soy wax, and wood wicks in our candles. Moreover, we'll explain why we take pride in crafting our candles locally here in beautiful New Zealand.

The Magic of Essential Oils

At Ahuru, we believe that the essence of true aromatherapy lies in the power of essential oils. These oils are derived from natural plant extracts, each with its unique therapeutic properties. When used in scented candles, essential oils can elevate your aromatherapy experience to new heights. Our collection of aromatherapy candles features a wide range of essential oil blends, carefully curated to cater to your specific needs, be it relaxation, stress relief, or uplifting your spirits.

Embracing the Natural with Soy Wax

Unlike traditional paraffin candles that release harmful toxins into the air, our scented candles are made with 100% natural soy wax. Soy wax is not only biodegradable and renewable, but it also burns cleaner and slower, allowing you to savor the therapeutic scents for longer. By choosing soy wax candles, you are not only taking care of yourself but also contributing to a healthier planet.

The Harmony of Wood Wicks

We understand the importance of creating a harmonious ambiance during aromatherapy sessions. That's why we exclusively use wood wicks in our candles. The gentle crackling sound of a wood wick burning adds a touch of tranquility to your aromatherapy experience, making it even more relaxing and soothing. Check out our wood wick candles collection to experience this delightful feature.

Local Craftsmanship, Global Impact

At Ahuru, we take pride in our locally-made candles. Our scented candles are handcrafted right here in New Zealand, with love and passion with the essence of aromatherapy. By supporting our NZ-made candles, you not only receive a high-quality product but also contribute to the local economy and help sustain traditional craftsmanship.

Aromatherapy Candles vs. Scented Candles

Now, let's address the question that often arises: What is the difference between aromatherapy candles and scented candles? The primary distinction lies in the ingredients used. Aromatherapy candles are crafted with natural essential oils, carefully selected for their therapeutic properties, and are designed to promote emotional and physical well-being. On the other hand, scented candles typically use synthetic fragrances, which may provide pleasant scents but lack the therapeutic benefits of essential oils.

Using Scented Candles for Aromatherapy

You might wonder if scented candles can be used for aromatherapy purposes. While scented candles made with synthetic fragrances may not offer the full benefits of aromatherapy, they can still contribute to a relaxing environment and create a pleasant ambiance. However, for a more profound and meaningful aromatherapy experience, we highly recommend our aromatherapy candles, enriched with the goodness of natural essential oils.


In conclusion, at Ahuru, we take aromatherapy seriously, and that is reflected in the choice of ingredients for our scented candles. By using essential oils, soy wax, and wood wicks, we aim to provide you with a deeply therapeutic and enriching experience. Furthermore, our commitment to crafting candles locally in New Zealand ensures that each product is made with love and care, adding to its unique charm.

Explore our range of scented candles and indulge yourself in the magical world of aromatherapy. Let the soothing scents and gentle crackling of wood wicks transport you to a realm of relaxation and rejuvenation. Choose Ahuru, your trusted partner in self-care and aromatherapy bliss.
