Nowadays, it is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life, often neglecting our own well-being and the health of our planet in the process. However, by embracing the concept of sustainable self-care, we can nurture both our body and mind and the environment, creating a harmonious balance that benefits us all.

Embracing Nature's Healing Power

One of the most sustainable and rejuvenating forms of self-care involves reconnecting with nature. Spending time outdoors not only provides a welcome escape from the stresses of everyday life but also allows us to appreciate the beauty and wonder of the natural world. Whether it's taking a leisurely hike through a nearby forest, enjoying a picnic in a local park, or simply basking in the warmth of the sun in our own backyard, nature offers endless opportunities to stop for a moment, disconnect, and relax.

Cultivating Mindfulness with Sustainable Practices

Incorporating mindfulness into our daily routines is another essential aspect of sustainable self-care. By being present in the moment and fully aware of our actions, we can make conscious choices that benefit both ourselves and the planet. Simple practices such as reducing waste, conserving energy, and supporting ethical and eco-friendly brands can have a significant impact on our well-being and the health of the environment.

Enhancing Self-Care Rituals with Trouvaille's Soy Wax Candles

At Trouvaille, we understand the importance of sustainable self-care, which is why we've crafted a range of hand-poured soy wax candles that not only promote personal well-being but also prioritise environmental sustainability. Made with premium soy wax and natural fragrance blends, our candles will help you connect with nature and yourself from the cosiness of your home.

This is why they are unique.

Hand-painted design: Our candles stand out with their captivating hand-painted illustrations, each inspired by one of the diverse biomes of our planet. From the golden hues of the desert to the verdant shades of the forest, our designs transport you to nature, adding a touch of elegance and charm to any space.

Eco-friendly, natural ingredients: Thanks to the hand-poured 100% American-grown premium soy wax (free from pesticides and herbicides) and hand-crafted natural fragrance blends, our candles offer a clean and healthy alternative to other candles in the market. Finished with a 100% cotton wick and an FSC-certified wooden lid, every aspect of our candles is thoughtfully designed for sustainability and quality. The beautiful glass jars can be reused with tea lights once the candle is finished.

Meaningful impact: What truly sets our candles apart is their tangible impact on the planet. With each candle purchase, you're also contributing to the preservation of threatened habitats. Every candle sold helps protect 40 square metres (430 square feet) of land through our partnership with the World Land Trust. Together, we have protected over 10 hectares so far! Why not treat yourself or someone you love AND save the planet in the process?

Elevating Your Self-Care Routine

Incorporating our soy wax candles into your self-care routine is a simple yet effective way to enhance relaxation and create a sense of tranquillity in your home. Whether you're unwinding after a long day at work, practicing yoga or meditation, or simply enjoying a quiet moment of solitude, the gentle flicker and fabulous scents of our candles can help you find peace and serenity amidst the chaos of modern life.

Trouvaille Desert Candle

Picture yourself wandering through the warmth of the desert, surrounded by towering dunes and endless stretches of golden sand. Our Warming Desert candle captures the essence of this magical landscape, with its rich blend of cinnamon, creamy nutmeg, and bergamot, designed to help you stay warm during the colder months.

Trouvaille Forest Candle

Why not light the Purifying Forest candle and take a long bath? Let the wonderful aromas of balsam fir, princess pine, and sweet forest berries transport you to a world of towering trees and dappled sunlight where every breath helps you reconnect with yourself. Add a few leafy plants to the mix and you’re in for a treat!

Our favourite picks to start the day right are Uplifting Grassland and Revitalising Freshwater. Our Uplifting Grassland candle channels the energy and vitality of this expansive biome, with its blend of citrus, sweet grass, and violet leaf that always helps us to stay positive.

Trouvaille Freshwater Candle

The invigorating, tropical scent in Freshwater is the best way to feel the spring at home when it is not all out there… Flamingos, macaws, a sloth and beautiful tropical flowers make this candle a customers’ favourite.

Trouvaille Tundra Candle

Lose yourself in the delicate fragrance of cashmere, sandalwood and lily of the valley with a touch of white heliotrope and jasmine petals, as you're transported to a world of icy expanses and pristine wilderness. The subtle scent of Soothing Tundra is our absolute favourite for meditation or yoga practice.

Trouvaille Marine Candle

And for those days when summer never seems close enough, our Invigorating Marine candle captures the vitality of the dynamic ecosystem in a coral reef, with its refreshing blend of bergamot, vetiver, and guaiac wood evoking the crisp, salty air of the coast.
