AEQUILL was created by Jintana Khieochuam.  Born in Thailand, she moved to London with her mother who owned a beauty therapy practice.  From an early age Jintana was surrounded by precious oils where she began to learn of their powerful therapeutic properties. Her obsession with candles and her childhood memory of playing with essential oils is brought together in the most therapeutic way she knows – the light of a candle.

Application:

Light preferably during the day. The candle should burn for up to 40 hours.

 

We say

This hand poured candle that is eco-friendly, is sure to impress in any welcoming home. The packaging has an old apothecary feel, with each box hand-stamped with a contemporary wax seal.

The scent is meant for summer, and as uplifting as it is, I believe other competitors on the market have released more flavours that make me think of summer beaches and cocktails at a rooftop bar. The glass and candle itself is attractive and sits beautifully as part of a homes decor.

Fragrances are available as well as travel-size options, along with eco-refills. The ethos of the brand is fantastic and impressive regarding its environmentally friendly aspects.

However, when leaving the candle in my lantern, I noticed the amount of soot left behind, which was obvious as the lantern was clear and clean beforehand.

 

Effectiveness:

Long-lasting and a great scent, but the residue could be improved. 3 stars

Packaging:

Beautiful, well-presented and eco-friendly. 5 stars

 

Value for money:

Taking into consideration that it is handmade with 40 hours burning time, the value is good. 4 stars

 

Buy or bye?

Bye
