Smell is a powerful sense; one that can invoke memories of treasured moments and cherished places and at Devi Wellness Company we've taken this to heart. Our line of hand-poured, scented candles will take you back to the intoxicating aromas of the motherland. From jasmine flowers and roses to sandalwood, incense, spiced tea, mangoes, vetiver, and more, these rich and familiar smells are sure to invoke feelings of nostalgia. Because quality and integrity have always been at the forefront of our brand, each candle is thoughtfully made with sustainable pure soywax which offers a relatively clean burn and beeswax which acts like a natural air purifier. Our uncoated, wood wicks are made from cherry wood that is sourced and manufactured in the USA from a Forest Stewardship Council Certified Mill making it a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative. On par with our brand's commitment to sustainable packaging, all of our candles come in a fully recyclable 9 ounce glass jar that can be easily repurposed and an uncoated, recyclable kraft label. With custom blend scent profiles consisting of fine, phthalate-free fragrances and essential oils from around the world and names that pay homemage to the Tamil language, our candles are sure to make a statement within your home.
Sri-Lanka is world renowned for both tea and spices as its microclimates make it possible to grow a wide array of them. However many do not know that Tamils built the foundation of Sri-Lanka's tea industry. In the 19th and 20th century, the British Empire brought Tamils from Southern India to work on central hill tea plantations in Sri-Lanka. Most of these workers were from Tamil Nadu who saw this as an opportunity for survival and a better future for their families. However, even though the British Empire abolished slavery, workers were subject to conditions of slavery such as poor housing, even poorer wages, and extreme work conditions. Today, workers hand-pluck and process nearly 675 million pounds of tea per year; the vast majority for export. Our scent THENEER, is a blend of black tea and spices such as cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves, and pays respect to the Tamil laborers that built the foundation of Sri-Lanka's tea industry.
