Sheenashona Candle & Home Fragrance

At Sheenashona we design & manufacture our own candle collections and wax melts from the finest quality Eco-friendly soya wax along with Eco Friendly oil reed diffusers and rooms sprays.

About Our Candles & Wax Melts

At Sheenashona we hand blend our luxury soya wax candles and hand mould our wax melts in small batches with a curated selection of signature fragrances and aromatherapy essential oils. We use Bekro dyes for the purest colour and cotton wicks in all our candle collections.

Soya wax is made from hydrogenating vegetable oil such as soya bean and rapeseed oil, making it perfect to create candles. Hydrogenation is a process where the oil which was once liquid at room temperature is processed to make it solid at room temperature, changing it into a wax. By changing the oils melting point, it allows the wax to melt at the ideal temperature. Vegetable waxes are renewable and thus Eco-friendly.

Aromatherapy oils have been used for centuries and is the practise of using essential oils for therapeutic benefit. Essential oils are extracted from plants and herbs, the essence of the plant and are super concentrated. Generally extracted by distillation often using steam essential oils can have a powerful effect on emotional and spiritual wellbeing and are often used for candles & home fragrance along with alternative medicines.

Essential oil is said to enhance your wellbeing when inhaled, as the scent molecules travels from the olfactory “sense of smell” nerves and then directly to the brain your amygdala which is a small, almond-shaped structure inside a larger network called the limbic system. Your amygdala and limbic system are extremely important as they control your emotions and  behaviour along with stress levels and memory . This is why essential oils can lift your mood and make you feel good. Studies have also shown that different aromatherapy oils can have both a stimulating and/or sedative effect on the nervous and immune system as well as evoking a vivid memory from your past.

Candle Care  

How To Burn Your Candle To Achieve The Best Results

  • Light your candle in a well-ventilated room and burn candles away from walls and overhanging surfaces, draughts other heat sources and flammable materials. 
  • Allow the candle to burn until it reaches the edges of the container.
  • Keep the wick trimmed to between a 1/4 to an 1/8th of an inch before each use.
  • Burn regular-sized candles for a maximum of two hours at a time. Burning for less time can cause the candle to 'tunnel', which leaves a build-up of wax around the vessel's sides. Burning for longer periods (over four hours) can cause the wick to move or slant.
  • Make sure you stop burning your candle when you have 10 mm of unmelted wax in the bottom of the candle to avoid excessive heat. 
  • Do not put the lid back on any candle vessel until it is completely cold. The jar may be warm for a considerable amount of time after the candle has been extinguished. Placing the lid back on may result in the vessel cracking and breaking as the heat cannot be released. Only place lid back on once candle vessel is completely cold.

Always Remember

  • Candle containers will become hot and should never be placed on any unprotected or polished surfaces.
  • Extinguish the flame and allow the candle too cool before handling or moving.
  • You should never leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Make sure you burn candles out of reach of children and pets. Never leave fragments of wick or matches in the candle after lighting.
  • Never allow the flame to touch the side of any container and cease burning if it does.
  • Extinguish a candle if it smokes, flickers repeatedly or the flame becomes too high.
  • Never use if there is damage to the container.
  • Storing candles for too long can affect the scent, so use your candle in a reasonable time to make the most of its beautiful fragrance.
  • Keep out of reach of children & pets.

Wax Melt Care (Non Electrical)

  • Wax melts should only be used in appropriate good quality wax melt burners. 
  • Remove your wax melts from any packaging and place them into the well of your wax melter. Do not over fill.
  • Use your burner with an unscented tea light. Do not leave burning tea light unattended.
  • Ensure the wax melt burner is well ventilated. There must be at least 6.5cm of space above the flame within the wax melt burner.
  • If the wax melt burner becomes very hot during use, do not touch or move whilst alight or whilst wax remains molten.
  • Do not burn the tea-light or leave the wax melt burner on or near anything that can catch fire.   
  • Extinguish the tea-light if the flame becomes enlarged, makes contact with the wax melt burner, or begins to smoke.
  • If there is remaining wax in the burner bowl wait until it cools and hardens, then apply gently pressure to remove the end of the wax.
  • Do not use metal or sharp objects to clean out your wax melter.
  • Keep out of reach of children & pets

About Our Oil Reed Diffusers

Reed diffusers are a very easy way to scent your home. Diffusing consistently they are long lasting and low maintenance. The fragrance will continue to evaporate into the air around it, creating a constant ambiance.

At Sheenashona our diffusers are designed to maximise fragrance and optimise evaporation. Made with a blend of Eco-friendly renewable oil which has a low carbon footprint, low odour and is non- toxic, we hand blended with a range of curated Sheenashona fragrances. Our diffuser reeds are made of fibre which means that you do not need to turn the reeds each week. .

Oil Reed Diffuser Care

  • Remove your oil reed diffuser from its packaging and take off the seal/closure and place on any silver, gold or black finishing caps.
  • Place your reed diffuser sticks in gently. Allow the fragrance oil to absorb into the reeds naturally.

  • Avoid placing your oil diffuser in direct sunlight or near any open windows.

Oil Reed Refill Diffuser Care

  • Clean out your diffuser bottle thoroughly. Wash with dish washing liquid and hot water, then let it dry completely. If you intend to use a different scent, you may need to wash your diffuser bottle out more than once.
  • Ideally replace your oil reed sticks especially if changing fragrances.
  • Open oil reed diffuser refill bottle carefully by twisting off lid.
  • Pour your oil reed diffuser bottle contents into a container which is clearly intended for oil reed diffusers and do not over fill (as you must place in the oil reed sticks which will displace the liquid a little)
  • Wearing protective gloves, pour in the reed diffusers oil into your diffuser bottle ensuring that you do not get any oil onto your hands or allowing it to come into contact with polished, painted, synthetic surfaces or fabrics
  • Avoid placing your oil diffuser in direct sunlight or near any open windows.
