I believe that anything used in our home, or on our bodies should be made with safe ingredients. Over the last few years I've made a conscious effort to live a slower, more purposeful life; paying attention to what I bring into our home. I started making my own products, including candles which I shared with friends and family and from this, Poet Botanicals slowly came to life.
I've always enjoyed the ritual of lighting a candle but was aware of the nasties that most contain. Once you know, you know ... and become quite sensitive to fragrance - as I am now. With a bit of research I quickly discovered that the term 'fragrance' is not regulated (even here in New Zealand) and nasties can still be included without any disclosure.
Our range has grown to include other self-care products; all thoughtfully designed as minimal, natural and effective alternatives to everyday items we use.
