We are a sister/sister duo with a love of scents!
Spending years collecting our favourite candle brands scents to burn, our love for candles grew and grew. From the classic lavender scents to more creative scents like marshmallow or clean cotton, we loved filling the room with a new aroma. However, these brands we loved so much had a few things in common - they smelt amazing yes, but the ingredients used were harmful for the environment. After trying to be more conscious of our own actions that contribute to the environmental distrain, we cut back on buying these candles.
Then after struggling to sleep for a while, our mother showed us some mists with the claim to help you sleep. The key ingredient? Essential oils! After researching the uses of essential oils we noted that different oils had different aromatherapy benefits for your mind and body including helping you to relax, rest and energise! This combination of this new knowledge and our want for eco-friendly candles birthed Torera.
Instead of the synthetic fragrances used in traditional scented candles, we have three basic, eco-conscious components:
1. Cotton wick
2. Soy wax
3. Essential oil blends
