Never Go Alone: Vegan Wax Candle
The Edition 01 candle is designed to create a calming, soothing atmosphere for you and your home. Its tactile glass casing mimics the feel of sandstone, associated with grounding, whilst the orange glow emitted once lit encourages our minds to wind down and associate with positive thoughts, improving our ability to wind down and relax after a day spent in front of blue screens. Color therapy combined with a transcending scent experience aimed to engage the senses.
“Studies have shown the positive effects which aromatherapy can have on improving depression as well as pain, anxiety and overall mood. The notes of cardamom and sandalwood in this candle are specifically chosen for their abilities to calm and soothe. Sandalwood has been shown to significantly improve fatigue, calm the mind and act as a mood enhancer. Cardamon is one of the most ancient spices, known for its healing properties and potential anti-microbial and anti-viral actions.” says the female founder Nga Nguyen. “Never Go Alone has created a collection of daily essentials that empower us to live responsibly as we navigate through times of unprecedented change. The inaugural collection takes inspiration from sandstone and the way it is able to harness strength, adapt, and overcome challenges.” she says.
Created over centuries by the merging of individual sand particles and minerals sculpted by forces of nature, sandstone formations are one of the most unique natural structures on earth. Like sandstone, humans are strong yet fragile. Every interaction we experience has the potential to shape and impact us.
