Nature's Best Gift: Essential Oils
Ahuru candles are made with 100% pure essential oils to produce our amazing signature scents.
Although it's harder and more expensive to make candles with essential oils compared to fragrance oils, there are so many benefits (more about this below).
We also use natural soy wax and woodwicks to make the best-scented soy candles with soothing crackling wick sounds.

MAKING SOY CANDLES WITH ESSENTIAL OILS
At Ahuru, we are very mindful of the essential oils we use for our candles.
All our essential oils are sourced from professional and ethical suppliers. They have rigorous quality control standards, and Gas Chromatograph (GC) and Mass Spectrometry (MS) are also used to ensure quality.
From the creator of Ahuru Candles:
"I spent most of my childhood growing up in New Zealand, surrounded by lush greens, colourful flowers, and blue skies, and I missed being in touch with nature again while I lived overseas."
Ahuru was born from my vision to help people create such beautiful moments in life, as well as to enhance our well-being through the use of all-natural products from Mother Earth."
FRAGRANCE OILS VS ESSENTIAL OILS IN CANDLES
Essential oils are pure natural aromatic essence
Essential oils are extracted from various aromatic plant material, including grasses, leaves, flowers, needles, twigs, fruit peels, seeds, bark, and roots. The essential oils within a plant are Mother Nature's creations, and they are not mixed with carrier oil or other artificial substances.
Synthetic fragrance oils are artificially created from chemical compounds that do not exist in nature. They can also be harmful to your body!
Some fragrance oils can be natural (Natural Fragrance oils), but they are created by isolating one of the natural aromatic components from a complex compound. When you extract an essential oil, you are removing the entire scent.
Although essential oils are more expensive and more are required to make a scented candle, they offer a natural aromatic scent far better than fragrance oils.
Essential oils have therapeutic effects
Essential oils are not only highly aromatic, but the natural chemical composition also offers therapeutic benefits. For example, lavender essential oil has a relaxing aroma that helps relieve tension with its soothing, calming, and harmonizing effect on the nerves.
Fragrance oils cannot provide the same benefits, as they’re only designed for imitating scents.
Essential oils are tested thoroughly
The essential oil industry is characterized by more extensive testing and quality control to ensure high standards and safety. However, a synthetic fragrance does not require such rigorous testing.
