Hey there! so today i have something quite exciting to bring you, i was very kindly sent some bits and pieces from anuuk aromatic to try. As i have mentioned before in a few posts now i have scents very helpful with dealing with my anxiety over the past year or so, especially turning to wax melts. So the idea of trying a different way to get the scent into my room was very appealing to me!
Anuuk aromatics is a luxury aromatherapy brand, they sell a variety of items all surrounding aromatherapy and essential oils, they do everything from aromatherapy bracelets, essential oil burners to bespoke perfume and skincare. I was sent the *essential oil burner with a leaf pattern £20.00, and 2 essential oil blends £25.00 each, *decadence and *divine davana.
I will say that everything came extremely well packaged, beautifully packed up perfect if you were giving it as a gift or as a gift to yourself even.
First up we have the *essential oil burner £20.00, i have the one with a leaf pattern but there are 2 other designs as well. Each burner is made out of sandstone, with a simple metal cup in the top, basically you light a tea light in the main chamber, put water in the little cup with a few drops of oil.
I hadn’t used an essential oil burner before, but its rather easy! the only issues i had was getting the amount of water and oil right. once you learn how deep the cup is the water is pretty easy to deal with, the oil was a bit harder! but im getting there.
The design is really pretty, but honestly my favourite thing about this burner is that its made from sandstone so that if you do spill anything on it, it dries really quickly! it makes cleaning up from any mistakes a lot easier.
Next up we have the essential oil blends that i have, anu (the owner of anuuk aromatics) asked me what kind of scents i like, i explained that im a big fan of fruity scents, so oranges/grapefruits/mangos/limes/lemons etc and with that she sent me these two blends.
First up we have *decadence essential oil blend £25.00, decadence is meant to be uplifting, energising and exciting. the website describes being stood on a paradise island, and that it is that kind of heady fruity scent, it contains frangipani, lemon, lime, ylang ylang and myrrh. Its not so heady i find it overwhelming, instead it just adds this level of depth, i really can imagine this beautiful beach it describes.
The other oil i was sent is the *divine davana essential oil blend £25.00, they describe this scent as flowery, exotic, fruity and sweet. the story behind this one is being in a temple surrounded by nature, thinking of the next chapter of your life and i really like that idea, the pictures they describe for the scents are brilliant i must say!
this scent is fresh, and yet again i can really see it fitting with what they described. the oils in this one are davana, rose geranium, grapefruit and orange, so right up my street! i haven’t heard of davana before, but im glad i have now has it smells wonderful.
My only gripe with the oils is that the dropper on the bottle is a little too big so you tend to use more oil than you need too, you have to be very careful! its not a big deal at all, just something to watch for.
So all in all i really liked this way of scenting my room, i will continue mixing up using this and wax melts for sure. If your interested in trying essential oil burning i can highly suggest anuuk aromatics, they are a luxury brand, but i would say it is that kind of luxury experience that if you can afford it is worth it, of course it would also make amazing gifts.
Have you tried essential oil burners before? let me know!
