Nichola Hinton (Birch, No.4, 1990 - 97) founded her business, Apothenie, in 2018 with her Canadian sister-in-law, Stephanie. They bonded over the mutual belief that living a clean, pure and healthy lifestyle as possible was the way they wanted to live out both their own and their family’s lives. After many years of sharing stories, recipes, ideas and products that lend themselves to this, it dawned on them that it would make sense to collaborate and create a product together that not only matched their lifestyle and health beliefs; but also nurtured their creative sides. Out of the discovery that many of the candle products currently available to us contain synthetically derived and potentially harmful ingredients, the idea to try to produce a safer and cleaner burning product was born!
Their range of carefully curated scented candles uses only EcoSoya non GM vegetable based wax, a clean burning cotton wick and 100% natural essential oils, all presented in a luxury glass jar, which can either be refilled or repurposed in any number of ways.
All of their candles are free from paraffin wax, palm wax, lead, chemical fragrance oils and dyes. www.apothenie.co.uk
