The concept behind Phena London is circularity, working with plant based restaurants across London to make aromatherapy candles from waste cooking oil. The founder Patricia Romero started to increasingly think about the pressure the world currently puts on natural resources. With a keen interest in sustainability, wellness and the restaurant industry, Patricia developed her idea to turn waste cooking oil into a luxury product in the form of aromatherapy candles, extending the life cycle of waste oil and closing the loop on the use of raw materials. Working with a patented procedure which turns waste cooking oil into wax, she started to craft her debut edition which would soon become the first UK-made circular aromatherapy candle.
Phena London philosophy is that luxury products shouldn’t be made at the cost of the environment. Designed and hand poured in London, these sustainable and eco-friendly candles deliver a clean and long-lasting burn. Not wanting to compromise on quality, they only source natural essential oils for the fragrances, as well as Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified wooden wicks. The result are beautifully crafted aromatherapy candles which contribute to the circular economy and to the future of luxury. To find out more about the process behind the candles click here.
Not only is this candle beautifully packaged, all of your senses are aroused from listening to the crackle of the wooden wick to the heady scent of lavender, clary sage, chamomile, geranium and bergamot. These are my favourites infused into one very special candle. Each one crafted with your wellbeing in mind letting you relax and stimulate all your senses. To be quite honest it is the perfect antidote to our current situation, being able to enjoy the simplest of things as lighting a candle to aid relaxation, soothe nerves and encourage mental calmness is all good in my book.
