This year, we encountered an extraordinary situation. We found ourselves with an abundance of Organic Jasmine Essential Oil and its expiration date was rapidly approaching! This unexpected surplus led us to pause and reflect, giving us an opportunity to revisit our core values of sustainability and respect for the natural world and its offerings.

During this moment of contemplation, we recognized an exciting opportunity that aligned beautifully with our philosophy. Today, we are delighted to introduce a special collaboration - an endeavour that epitomizes our dedication to both our planet and your wellbeing.

A story of craftsmanship
We decided to collaborate with Bluecorn, a renowned local candlemaker celebrated for their artisanal workmanship. The merging of their expertise with our commitment to wellness sparked an idea: crafting an exclusive holistic candle to enhance the wellbeing of our ISUN community.

For Bluecorn, candle-making is a true art form. Since 1991, they have been creating their luminous works, beginning with the careful selection of the purest beeswax. The wax undergoes gentle filtration to eliminate any impurities while preserving its sweet aroma and vibrant hue, in harmony with nature's intention. Thoughtful wick selection ensures each candle burns perfectly.

Much like us, they draw inspiration from the natural world around us. Their process resonates with our aim to preserve the essence of simplicity and mindfulness in a fast-paced world. Together, we've crafted a candle that illuminates both space and spirit.

Organic Jasmine Essential Oil: your wellbeing elixir
Jasmine oil is renowned for its richly sweet scent, capable of lifting spirits and instilling confidence. Frequently used in aromatherapy, it is known to alleviate stress and encourage a harmonious state of mind. Here are just a few of its numerous benefits:

  • Enhanced sleep quality: Jasmine oil's calming properties extend to its ability to improve sleep quality. With its soothing and mood-balancing qualities, it creates an environment conducive to relaxation, promoting restful sleep. Scientific studies have even demonstrated its sedative effects, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a peaceful night's rest.
  • Holistic wellness support: Jasmine oil is believed to possess antiviral, antibiotic and antifungal properties that contribute to overall wellbeing and natural health. Traditionally, it has been used in folk medicine to combat various internal infections, respiratory concerns and skin conditions.
  • Balancing the journey: For women navigating menopause or living with PMS and hormone-related issues, jasmine oil can offer valuable support. Whether diffused or applied topically, its aroma may help regulate emotional symptoms, boost energy levels and improve mood, providing a natural approach to finding balance.
  • Heightened focus: Beyond its calming qualities, jasmine oil is recognized for its ability to stimulate the mind. Its active components have been shown to increase heart rate, body temperature, and brain activity - essential elements for improved concentration, active learning and effective problem-solving. Whether you need to stay focused during work or attain mental clarity in your daily tasks, jasmine oil can be a valuable ally for boosting cognitive function.

Your Journey Within: A Ritual
We encourage every member of our ISUN community to set aside time for a mindful wellness ritual. In a world that often feels overwhelming and overstimulating, a ritual provides an opportunity to slow down, be present and assess how you feel – today. Now.

"Your Journey Within" is a beautifully curated gift set featuring Amethyst Bath Salts, Amethyst Body Oil, Soothing Relief Balm and our exclusive "Journey of Light" candle. This set is ideal for anyone who has experienced burnout this year, those who consistently prioritize others over themselves. It is self-love, elegantly wrapped.

With this gift set, we have created an intentional practice that invites tranquility into your life, focusing on nurturing your body, mind and spirit.

  • Set the scene

Create a soft and calming atmosphere, a space where you can unwind and release the day's tensions. Dim the lights, play soothing music or sound healing frequencies (963Hz is ideal for relaxation; you can find many tracks at this frequency on Spotify or YouTube), and ensure your space is free from distractions. Turn off your phone and shut out the noise. This space becomes your sanctuary.

  • Journey on with Light

As you light our "Journey of Light" candle, let its soft glow fill your space. The mood-lifting properties of jasmine oil will elevate your senses, promoting happiness by reducing stress, anxiety and tension.

  • Renew with Amethyst Bath Salts

Draw a warm bath and add our Amethyst Bath Salts. These salts are specially formulated to release muscular tension and mental stress. The soothing presence of our bath salts promotes calm, creating a sacred space for relaxation. Close your eyes and let the soothing aroma envelop you.

  • Indulge with Soothing Relief Balm

Next, reach for our Soothing Relief Balm, a versatile multitasker. This balm can serve as a moisturizer, a mask, or a comforting balm. Its blend of virgin coconut oil, cucumber distillate and helichrysum extract calms irritation, stimulates cell regeneration and revives supple skin.

Gently massage this balm into your face and neck in circular motions, allowing the handpicked ingredients to work their magic.

  • Nourish with Amethyst Body Oil

After your bath, apply Amethyst Body Oil to your skin, allow its rich blend of herb-infused grapeseed oil, valerian, lavender extracts, jojoba and olive oils to nourish and hydrate your body. Amethyst, renowned for its third-eye chakra healing properties, gently raises your vibration, promoting inner calm and stability. Breathe deeply as you feel the serenity wash over you, comforting both your body and spirit.

Reflect on your journey within, the renewal of your body, the calming of your mind, and the peace in your heart.

As you close your ritual, take a moment to express gratitude for this intentional act of self-care and inner nourishment. Carry the sense of calm, renewal and balance with you as you re-enter the world, knowing that you can return to this moment of serenity and "Your Journey Within" whenever you need.
