Aromatherapy: Trend, fad or way of life?

Posted by Barry Whitmore on

OceanZebra is no different to any other company, we get used to seeing fads & trends come and go with the seasons – its fitted shirts this year, and loose next – but with our own lives we seek Nirvana, that place where we can be one with the universe, the process of change, fads & trends means very little in our pursuit of peace, harmony, and tranquility.

OceanZebra accessorizes Aromatherapy in 2017/18.

Fads & trends often reflect the times in which we live. When the world is in meltdown, a bad place to be, or we feel sensory overload from our busy lives, this is when we seek safe haven in our inner sanctum, the nurturing spaces of our home.

Aromatherapy plays a very important role, as a calming influence in our lives & the environment that we inhabit. The sweet aromas of wisps of mint circulating through our senses, the hint of Rosemary, Eucalypt or Frankincense in the air. But what of our visual senses, this is where oceanZebra has seen a need and has put many designs together, to fulfill this aspect of our search for total bliss.

From the drawing board

Posted by Barry Whitmore on

Big Dipper Beeswax candles become the focus of oceanZebra designers this month, as they smash out long hours at the drawing board on our latest designs.

Their focus is to design several new candle holders like our ever popular Zen candle holder and a new idea on the drawing board is our aromatherapy essential oil burner.

Our decision to turn to beeswax candles for this new range of products comes about because of the purity of the burning of beeswax candles, we believe that normal paraffin based tea lights would have a negative effect on the purity of the essential oils being used in our burners.

“‘beeswax candles are naturally dripless and smokeless, and they tend to have a longer burn time than candles made from other waxes. Beeswax is 100% natural and a renewable resource that actually cleans the air by emitting purifying negative ions and that’s a good thing for your personal environment” – Lead Designer.

Choose timber & help save the planet!

OceanZebra chooses timber as its key element in its design and manufacturing process, as we believe this helps to tackle the ever growing problem of climate change. There are several ways that this transpires, one of the most important being that wood stores carbon.
