Our Story

how it all started

During my time at home, I was using some expensive candles labelled soy “natural” candles, thinking I was paying for quality natural candles but getting terrible migraines instead. So I began my research into candle ingredients and quickly discovered that some ‘natural’ candles contained toxins that have links to migraines, and other additives that I couldn’t quite believe were still being used. 

 

I started looking for an alternative, 100% natural option to help with migraines, which led me to develop natural candles that have grown into our brand, Nourish the Soul. Nourish The Soul have now developed an extensive range of new and intoxicating products using pure and natural essential oils, that are so much more than just fragrance.  

Our fragrances contain essential oil blends that may enhance your health and well-being, your mood, and the ambience of your space without putting the quality of the air around you and your loved ones at risk. 

 

I have poured my heart and soul into curating a collection that is 100% pure and natural which has indeed been rewarding and helpful in my journey with chronic pain. 

Our commitment to using all-natural and non-toxic products is at the core of our brand.

Our Customers

I recently bought a candle from Nourish the Soul and I could not believe how beautiful and how long the candle lasts.  

The fragrance was soft and burned clean making the entire house smell lovely.  

Being pregnant at the time it made me feel very relaxed and helped me sleep. 

I have recommended your candles to all my friends and will be continuing to purchase from you

I am completely in love with my Nourish The Soul candles! My absolute favourite aroma is Heaven Scent. 

 I can't get enough of this one and burn it everyday while I wind down before bed. I swear the first whiff sweeps me off my feet. They look gorgeous in my home salon... and in every other room, lol. I've had loads of compliments from my own customers because of the candles I burn. They help to set the mood and make my salon look gorgeous. Thank you for using essential oils instead of fragrance. The difference in quality between the 2 is immeasurable.  The quality in these candles does not go unnoticed. Even the wax is divine... it looks like silk! I'm a huge fan of the whole range and will definitely be ordering these online for Xmas presents, feeling good that I'm buying from an Australian business. Yes!! 5 Stars all the way!

Using Only Natural Fragances

Fragrances are the most complex ingredients in a candle. Fragrances are composed of natural, naturally derived, and synthetic ingredients. Nourish The Soul only uses natural fragrances that are also phthalate-free. In addition, all fragrances used by Nourish the Soul follows the code of practices set by the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM), ensuring all fragrances are safe for consumers.  

Natural Fragrances 

Nourish The Soul sources premium quality, pure essential oils from ethical and responsible sources.  

Blending essential oils with similar or complementary properties can be used for an intended olfactory impact and potential therapeutic benefits. 

When certain essential oils are blended, they can enhance the effect of the individual essential oils, creating a powerful synergy. 

Our fragrances aren’t just fragrances but synergies best used depending on the time of day or the desired effect and mood. Among the countless benefits of essential oils used in aromatherapy, as the most appealing attributes, they can create a calming atmosphere, lift spirits, promote feelings of peace, and balance emotions and moods.

OUR VALUES

MIND     BODY     SOUL     EARTH

My Story

Nine years ago, I was involved in an accident that resulted in multiple surgeries and ongoing treatments with no relief. Instead, I had unbearable nerve pain and changes to the function and use of the left side of my body. Unfortunately, several months after this horrendous pain started, I was diagnosed with a serious nervous system disorder called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). As a result, I lost everything I had worked so hard to achieve. My career, independence, friendships and financial freedom.   

 

Over time, my Chronic Pain Medical team started helping me with non-pharmaceutical, non-invasive options to help with my pain as the other options were more surgery and opioid addiction. Finally, I decided to take charge of my treatment and began researching natural therapies to fight chronic pain. As a result, over several years, I adopted several significant changes to improve my quality of life, reducing my pain levels and focused on surrounding myself with a natural healing environment and came of opioids completely.  

 

As I began my healing journey and my energy shifted, I started creating 100% natural candles.  

 

Our senses are such a powerful system, and aromatic therapy can significantly impact our emotional and mental state. When I began crafting our 100% natural candles, I would find myself closing my eyes (while indoors), smelling the clean, fresh air bushwalking in the Blue Mountains, or clearly picturing my childhood on the farm, in the garden or picking the juiciest of fruits on the family orchard. 

 

I found a healthier way of living through this journey, significantly reduced pain, and found my purpose.
