HYGGE

The Danish recipe for happiness or a happy way of living. This is how the term hygge is often described. The origins of this word can be found in Denmark, and did you know that this nation ranks among the happiest in the world? So let`s take a closer look at what is hiding behind this magical word. Hygge is actually an abbreviation of the word hyggelig, which can be loosely translated as a relaxed or warm atmosphere. Hygge is simply the art of surrounding ourselves with what makes us happy. Whether it`s a nice get-together with family or friends, a trip to your favorite place or a quiet evening with hot tea, your favorite book accompanied by a lovely smelling candle and relaxing music. Hygge is a way of stopping for a while, enjoying the magic of the moment and living what is known as slow living.

 

How to practice hygge?

Do you want to try hygge? We`ve got some tips on how to create that magical Danish atmosphere. How about finally taking your best friend out after a while to visit your favorite cafe together? Hygge is also a relaxing moment listening to your favorite music. Focus on the environment around you too. In the interior, opt for muted colors and natural materials. First and foremost, it`s essential that your home is cozy and sticks to the spirit of minimalism, without too much furniture or accessories. Everything unnecessary simply has to go. This is the only way to make your home feel comfortable, relaxed and enjoy even the most ordinary moments to the fullest.

What does hygge bring?
1. Better shape
Part of a slow lifestyle is incorporating more natural exercise while limiting driving. There is also a strong emphasis on food. After all, the precursor to the term slow living is slow food, the opposite of fast food. It is about the inclusion of local food and the appreciation of local gastronomy.
2. Less stress more time
Once you understand that you don't have to handle a zillion things in one day, you will feel relieved and generally calmer. In reality many of the things that stress you out can actually wait and won't go anywhere. Just spread them out over several days. You will be relieved and it will give you much more time to yourself.
3. Stronger relationships
Slowing down and disconnecting from the hustle and bustle of the world around you, including social media, means that you will be fully focused on your loved ones, which will undoubtedly benefit your relationships.
4. Happier life
Over time, you will find that you feel more at ease and happier overall. Remember, it's not about stopping completely. Slow living is about hitting the brakes for long enough to start to see and appreciate the world around you.

Hygge and aromatherapy

The concept of hygge undoubtedly includes candles or essential oils. Rely on natural waxes and natural essential oils, which are ideal for relaxing your body and soul. Try creating a place in your home just for you, where you place a pile of candles, an aroma lamp, a fluffy blanket and a few cushions. There`s that warm and calming feeling every time you settle into that corner, and that`s what hygge is all about.

 

Slow Living

The ESSENS Slow Living range was created so that you too can feel the magic of aromatherapy and live according to the principles of hygge. The name Slow Living is not chosen by accident. It is a worldwide phenomenon that also coincides with the principles of Danish hygge. Slow living is a reaction to today`s consumerist and fast-paced lifestyle and an attempt to return to a pace of life that is respectful of our planet. The goal of slow living, as the name suggests, is to slow down, relax and enjoy the present. The ESSENS Slow Living range includes not only essential oils but also aroma lamps, bar soaps and soy wax candles with a crackling fire sound effect. 

The Slow Living range will warm your soul and help you enjoy the peace and magic of the present moment. The basic vision was to prepare products that will minimize the distractions of our hectic lives and help strengthen the balance and harmony of the body. This in return ultimately leads to an improvement in the overall condition of your body, soul and mind. 

100% natural essential oils have been created to soothe and induce a pleasant atmosphere using the concentrated power of herbs. They are ideal for relaxation, massages, cosmetics and baths. They play an important role in aromatherapy, which is rightly classified as a type of alternative medicine and literally means "treatment by scent".

Essential oils are highly concentrated, volatile aromatic substances that are extracted from various parts of plants. They are found in leaves, roots, flowers, seeds and bark. They give plants their fragrance, protect them from danger, even help them with pollination and are very rich in various active and medicinal substances.

 
 

Effects of aromatherapy

Aromatherapy has strong therapeutic properties and is rightly classified as one of the types of alternative medicine, literally meaning "treatment by scents". Aromatherapy has a positive effect on our nervous system and emotions, supports immunity and helps with health problems. Individual essential oils serve to improve the overall condition of the body and soul, yet have different therapeutic effects. By using the right essential oil, it is possible to achieve relief from a range of problems.

Slow Living candles contain only natural vegan ingredients, led by soy wax, supplemented by certified palm wax from plantations grown for this purpose only. This special wax blend burns cleaner and slower, significantly extending the burn time to up to 50 hours. The fragrance component is provided by natural essential oils in such a proportion that the resulting scent is pleasant and non-irritating. The wooden wick allows the optimal release of the pleasant aroma into the air and creates a relaxing atmosphere thanks to the crackling fire sound effect.

 
 

How to use essential oils?

Essential oils can provide relief for ailments such as nausea, body aches, stress, headaches or menopausal problems. Aromatherapy also provides stress relief, as well as stimulating and boosting immunity.

If you`re embarking on the aromatherapy journey, it is worth knowing how to use essential oils to their best effect. Aromatherapy can be done in several ways, including the following:

 

Inhalation: you can drip small amounts of oils into aroma lamps or diffusers. This way you can scent your interior and create a pleasant mood depending on the kind of oil you are using. It can also be mixed with water in atomizers and used as an interior spray or to scent pillows.

Massage: by massaging the oils into the skin, you will achieve a pleasant relaxation and thanks to the benefits of the oils you can enjoy their full potential. Try for example foot massage, massage to relax the neck and other stiff muscles, apply to your temples or use the oils as a compress.

Cosmetics: mix the oil with your favourite face cream or body lotion (1 - 2 drops are enough, we recommend a patch test every time as essential oils may be irritating to sensitive skin).

Bath: add 3-5 drops to the bath or shower wall and enjoy the aroma enhanced by the power of the steam.

 

How to look after the ESSENS Slow Living candles?

To ensure that the final effect of the burning candle with a wooden wick is perfect, give it special care. The wooden wick should always be lit from the bottom where the wick touches the wax. It is important to let the candle burn long enough for the melted wax to form an even level that reaches the glass edges. Otherwise, a tunnel effect, a residue of wax on the sides of the glass, will form in the candle. This residue could melt, flood the burning wick, and extinguish it. Once you blow out the candle, allow the wax to cool completely and then remove any pieces of burnt wood from the wooden wick, making sure to leave no debris in the candle. You don`t have to worry if the wick is too short. An unevenly aligned wick can lead to spontaneous extinguishment or smoldering.

 
They are volatile, oil-soluble particles of plant fluids that contain fragrances. Not only do they smell wonderful, but they have a lot of positive effects on the mind and body, thanks to which they have been used for centuries. And what they are good for always defines the benefit of the plant or herb - for example, lemon and orange have an effect on good mood and energy, eucalyptus is good against colds, lavender to calm down and so on.
Each oil is suitable for something different and its scope of use is always described in the product detail on the website. In general, the oils are suitable for inhalation, for baths, aroma lamps, diffusers, sprays, for application to the skin during massages, they can also be added to cosmetics.
That`s absolutely correct, our oils are single-species, not mixed or diluted with anything. It is 100% pure and 100% natural extract.
Greece, Spain, Brazil. From Brazil it is, for example, orange oil, from Spain thyme, eucalyptus, lavender, mint and lemon, and from Greece lemongrass and rosemary.
All our oils are obtained by steam distillation from plant material (roots, stems, seeds, fruits or flowers).
We can guarantee that the plants are grown gently and are also gently processed. We cannot use the BIO / ORGANIC label because not all available certification from all stages of production and processing are available, but it is important to realise that although the BIO / ORGANIC label is a very trending issue, not all companies that use the label are able to demonstrate organic quality. From our point of view, this label thus becomes a marketing slogan. Respect for nature and care during processing, those are the most important issues. For us, it goes without saying that we do not use any chemicals.
Yes, various qualities of essential oils can be found on the market, from the cheapest to the most expensive. Our oils are of premium quality and meet all strict production standards.
On the market, essential oils are often classified into 4 groups according to quality:
1. Floral Waters - low quality, often synthetic, the most common on the market.
2. Grade C - perfume quality - usually with the addition of chemicals, very commonly found on the market
3. Grade B - natural quality - contains natural and certified oils, but usually diluted, on a smaller market
4. Grade A - therapeutic quality - pure, unadulterated and undiluted oil, safe also for internal use, one of the rarest on the market
ESSENS essential oils meet the requirements of the Grade A quality index.
Essential oils should not be exposed to direct light, so they need to be protected.
In our case, we chose glass bottles in green. The glass is resistant to temperature changes, retains the basic parameters of the stored and tinted glass (green or brown) prevents the penetration of UV radiation. The packaging of essential oils fully meets the requirements for sufficient storage.
Yes, if they are exposed to it for a long time, oxidation occurs. However, the oil is not destroyed in a matter of hours, but in the matter of days to weeks. Therefore, an incorrectly closed bottle should not compromise the quality of the oil.
Yes, this is true. The more heat, the worse for the oil. Heating the oil reduces its therapeutic properties.
If we put a sufficient amount of water and only a few drops of oil in the aroma lamp suitable for a tea candle, it means that we dilute it enough so that it does not burn, then we can enjoy a pleasant scent, which is released by heating. The burning flame of a candle also evokes pleasant relaxing feelings. The same applies to use in the bath or shower. Just a few drops and do not overdo it with the temperature of the water so that the essential oils contained in the oils are not destroyed.
Yes, the easiest way is to rub a few drops in your palms, warm them by rubbing against each other, put them on your face and breathe deeply. Aroma diffusers that work on the principle of cold steam are also recommended.
It is an oil used to dilute essential oils, for example almond or jojoba oil is used, i.e. a natural oil which, with its aroma, does not overwhelm the aroma of the essential oil, but dilutes it in a desirable manner. ESSENS carrier oil should be available on the market by the end of the year.
In general, whatever we consume must be registered as a food supplement or food. Our oils are certified as cosmetics because they are most often used externally or are part of aromatherapy. Here, common sense, plays a big role. If you have a product that does not contain any chemicals and additives, but is purely an extract of herbs or fruit, you do not have to be afraid to use it in small quantities and it could be ingested. However, everyone should be cautious, not every single oil is recommended to be ingested. You probably do not have to worry about citrus oils or thyme, but we don`t recommend other types of oils to be ingested.
The oils have a long shelf life and are marked with the PAO 6 M pictogram. This means that they should be used within 6 months of opening.
A few drops of oil in a water sprayer, which can then be sprayed directly on the body or clothing. It is also advisable to use an aroma lamp or aroma diffuser in the room you want to protect from insects.
We can definitely recommend mint oil. Drip a few drops into the palms, warm up by rubbing and gently massage into the temples.
Rosemary is the best way to improve concentration, and it has really been tried and proven that it stimulates the senses and increases concentration during study or some strenuous mental activity.
We do not recommend application to mucous membranes or sensitive areas or to the eyes.
In these cases, we recommend caution, preferably in consultation with a physician who is experienced in using the essential oils.
Yes, they can, but we recommend diluting the oils.
Yes, unfortunately this is also possible for anyone who is more sensitive. If this happens, stop using the oil and apply a carrier oil to the affected area, or any other standard oil, butter or even lard. Do not rinse oil from the skin with water, as irritation may get worse.
