Dating back 900 years, vanilla was first grown by the Totonac tribe in Mexico. It then became a symbol of tribute to Aztec kings. Today, vanilla is known as the world's favorite flavor and is a staple in many perfumes and luxury home fragrances.

A natural remedy for stress and anxiety, lavender has been used for its relaxing properties for thousands of years. Originating from the Mediterranean mountains, the Egyptians first used its oil as a perfume 2500 years ago. Greeks and Romans also embraced its soothing scent and healing benefits.
The soothing fragrance of lavender has been proven to decrease stress and anxiety. The calming effect is attributed to the chemical component linalool in lavender oil, which activates certain brain receptors that promote relaxation. Additionally, lavender scent has been reported to alleviate depression, improve sleep, and provide mild pain relief.

As a candle and coffee company, we were happy to find that the humble fragrance of fresh coffee is high on this list.
The scent of coffee has the power to awaken the senses, boost memory and increase alertness with just one whiff. For many people around the world, coffee is an essential part of their daily routine, providing not only a stimulating drink but also a warm, comforting aroma.
The rich, enticing smell of freshly brewed coffee is created by the Maillard reaction, a chemical process that takes place when heat interacts with sugars, proteins, and amino acids. This reaction produces a variety of aroma and flavor compounds, including 2-furfurylthiol, the primary source of the coffee scent, along with fruity aldehydes, caramel-like furans, earthy pyrazines, and smoky phenolics.
We're working on infusing a candle with the perfect coffee aroma. In the meantime, check our free-trade gourmet coffee roasts and enjoy the World's Most Bitchin' Coffee.
