  • Mother - A walking Miracle

    0 comments / Posted on by Maeva Candles


    If we know what love is, it’s because of our mothers. Mothers have unconditional love for their kids. A love that is selfless, altruistic, benevolent and bountiful. Being a mother is a full-time job: an unsalaried position, with non-negotiable working hours! They give up a lot for their position- the big things and the little things. Mother’s day is great opportunity to remind the women in our lives-“You are the most beautiful thing I keep inside my heart”

    But, how do we show appreciation to a mother? Maybe one day of undivided attention as she did when we garbled on about childish school stories? The truth is there isn’t anything that matches her compassion, poise, grace and patience but we hope we can make your day brighter and sweeter just like she always did. This Mother’s day, buy the nurturer in your life our exquisite, ‘Mother’s day’ candle and fill her home with the comforting fragrances of Green Apple and Pear.

    Here are few simple ways we suggest to pamper and spoil your mother on her special day!
     
    • Let’s start with something fun! Participate in the Mother’s day Giveaway Challenge currently taking place on our Instagram page- The Maeva Store and stand a chance to win a luxurious gift box, curated especially for your mother! The gift box houses goodies with exuberant fragrances that will last as long as your memories.

                                                                                                                                                                   
              So hurry up, head to our Instagram page and participate to win!

    • Cheers to good food and good mood- nothing brings people together like good food! So take charge of the kitchen and prepare a nice dinner in gratitude for all the great food your mother makes, all year round. Glam up the dining table with mouth-watering delicacies and affectionate glimmer with Maeva’s handcrafted and exquisite ‘Mother’s Day” candles. The heart of the fragrance is sweet and tangy apple, beautifully combined with light and refreshing pear to provide an uplifting effect. 
    • In order to make sure the kids are getting all they need, a mother gets ignorant about her needs (well, most of the time). She forgets to sit back and unwind. So what you need to do is make sure that your mother takes a break from superwoman duties and put her feet up! All she needs to do is look after her today and maybe you can give her that push by booking a lavish Spa session. A day of pampering will totally bring back that glow she deserves! To give it a personal touch, bring the service home. For an exclusive experience decorate the spa space with our “Mother’s Day” candles and fill the room with the comforting fragrance of green apple and pear. Now let your mother relax and loosen up!

    • Last but not the least! You wanna thank your mother for giving you wings to fly, roots to come back and reasons to stay strong and positive always?    We have got you covered! We have the perfect candles that will help you express your feelings in the most splendid way! Head to our website and curate a memorable gift box with the perfect “Thank You” candles, set apart by its beautiful message and heady aroma that is bound create a blissful aurora.

  • 5 Incredible Reasons To Use Citronella

    0 comments / Posted on by Maeva Candles

    The latest addition to The Maeva Store- Citronella candles have raised some eyebrows. It almost sounds gimmicky, candles which can ward off mosquitoes?

    The truth is that citronella has a rich historical usage with it being used thousands of years ago in Sri Lanka, Indonesia and China to lower inflammation, fight infection, relieve pain and more. Maeva candles use citronella essential oil, a more potent form than the plant which is extracted by steam distilling the leaves and stems of two varieties of the Asian grass plant citronella, Cymbopogon nardus and Cymbopogon Winterianus. Citronella is also a distant relative of Lemongrass, hence the slight citrusy scent.

    Today citronella is used in the form of essential oils for aromatherapy or topical use, in sprays, a component of candles, lotions and even cosmetic products.

    Citronella essential oil is one of the most common aromatherapy oils and is part of what gives many household sprays and candles their signature scent. Here are some accepted uses of this miracle plant:

    Inhibits Bacterial Growth

    Before the advent of modern medicine, the plant was used to curb bacterial growth, treat infectious wounds as it has components of methyl isoeugenol which are responsible for this property. 

    Fights Depression

    A common aromatherapy ingredient, the fresh citrusy scent is said to fight depression and help alleviate feelings of anxiety, sadness, and negativity. It is also used in diffusers at night in many countries as it encourages sleep.

    Great For The Skin

    Because citronella essential oil has antibacterial properties, it is extremely effective against acne-causing bacteria when applied topically. It is very good at reducing sebum buildup and drying down oily skin when used in a combination with witch hazel, tea tree and other oils in small quantities.

    Removes Bad Odours

    It's not difficult to see why this essential oil is a staple of many deodorants, body sprays and air fresheners! The crisp, rich lemon-like aroma of this oil is universally liked and it's power to replace bad odours makes it a favourite among fragrance lovers everywhere. An added advantage is that citronella is completely natural and free from  harmful chemicals found in mainstream deodorants, such as parabens, aluminum, and propylene glycol.

    Insect Repellant

    One of the most famed used of the citronella plant is its ability to keep away insects and mosquitoes. They masks scents that mosquitoes are attracted to such as carbon dioxide and lactic acid thus warding off mosquitoes when diffused or lit in citronella-infused candles.

    We at Maeva knew we had to incorporate citronella into our collection thus we infused reusable clay pots with potent citronella essential oil plus a quirky dust-cover on top! Our motive was to create something with incredible utility but also an attractive visual appeal, so head over to our collection and do give us feedback on our attempt.
