The handcrafted candles are said to deliver a clean, soot-free experience, and come in 16 different aromas. Because essential oils are highly volatile plant extracts, they evaporate quickly and don’t clog the wick. According to Dionisio, the candles can transform an environment and provide healing aromas designed to invoke a desired mood and combat depression and stress. The Zinnia Company also offers aromatherapeutic benefits with its candles. The hand-poured aromatherapy collection is made with essential oils and a soy wax blend to aid in aroma retention and long, clean burn. The candles contain no dyes or pigments.

There’s also an unscented collection from Zinnia, available in paraffin-free pillars made with 100% palm wax in five colors. All are designed to coordinate with mood and décor, and are various pillar sizes and burn times.

The options for scenting a room or environment are far-reaching, and the desired results are attainable, even in the midst of the busiest cities in the world.
