THE SCENT LIBRARY

Natural fragrance helps connect us to nature. 

Our sense of smell creates powerful connections, it can unlock long forgotten memories,

evoking moments and places in time.

I choose to work with pure essential oils for their holistic and aromatherapy benefits to our wellbeing,

creating fragrances to uplift or to sooth. Take a browse through my current scent collection.

BASIL + LIME

This blend of basil + lime oils will give your senses a fresh and clean lift - enhances your mood and increasing alertness. Lime oil is known to promote general wellbeing and emotional balance, so great for lifting your mood and perking you up. Basil oils contains a compound known as linalool (also found in Lavender) that has been shown to reduce stress.  Inhaling the basil aroma is believed to transmit messages to the regions of the brain that controls emotions + the nervous system - promoting the healthy function of your heart rate, stress levels, blood pressure and aids breathing.

LEMONGRASS + LITSEA

An exotic blend which transports you to the far east with fresh lemongrass and tropical Litsea Cubeba. Lemongrass is fresh + exotic known to calm the mind and relive tension combined with tropical Litsea Cubeba, with its spicy lemon citrus fragrance which helps reduce stress + anxiety while promoting relaxation, mental clarity and aid restful sleep.

BERGAMOT + MANDARIN

A blend of fresh ripe bergamot and sweet citrus mandarin to uplift the senses. Bergamot is known to elevate your mood and alleviate stress while uplifting citrus notes in Mandarin aid circulation and promote a health immune system.

A great daytime candle or for evenings when you want a bit of a boost.

ORANGE + CEDARWOOD

Orange + cedarwood, a balanced blend of bright orange and soothing cedarwood with a dash of sweet tangergine. Cedarwood is known to help relieve feelings of stress and anxiety as well as support the function of the pineal gland. Bright citrusy orange helps boost mood and energy levels, while sweet tangerine is known to help alleviate

stress and depression.

WOODLAND

Inspired by my love of being amongst the tress and the woody fragrances of Whinlatter Forest in the Lake District.

A walk in the woods is my favourite way to connect to nature and one of the best activities you can do to help look after your mental + physical wellbeing.  Studies have shown just how effective spending time in woodlands can be on our health, resulting in reduced stress levels, improvements in short term memory, lowering blood pressure and supporting immunity. I've combined cedarwood, spruce, scots pine + eucalyptus essential oils to evoke the sensory experience of being in woodlands and forests to enjoy at home. 

EUCALYPTUS + BAY

A natural woody and fresh combination of eucalyptus and bay. Eucalyptus helps clear the sinuses, aids breathing and is known to increase brain function while bay aids respiratory disorder and digestion. Great in the kitchen for cutting through cooking smells or the bathroom for a fresh clean aroma.

CEDARWOOD + GERANIUM

A blend of woody cedarwood + sweet geranium evoking relaxing days at the spa: clean air and woodland walks. Cedarwood is known to support the function of the pineal gland which releases melatonin to aid sleep. Combined with the benefits of stress and anxiety reducing geranium this is an ideal fragrance for relaxed evenings and

perfect for a long soak at the end of a busy day.
