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 homage to the Tamil language, our candles are sure to make a statement within your home.
Patchouli, a herb from the mint family, is derived from the Tamil root words "patchai" meaning green and "illai" meaning leaf. Its leaves were originally used in indigenous Tamil medicine or Siddha medicine and its oil as an insect repellent. Patchouli was first introduced to Europe in the 1840s when Napoleon Bonaparte brought back silks sprinkled with the herb to protect them from insects during travel. It was so common for goods from the far East to come with patchouli in them that the unique scent became linked to these exotic imports, becoming a symbol of luxury and wealth. Our candle SELVAM, translating to wealth in Tamil, combines the earthy aroma of patchouli with sandalwood and a hint of florals to create an elegant and luxurious blend.
