AEQUILL was created by Jintana Khieochuam. Born in Thailand, she moved to London with her mother who owned a beauty therapy practice. From an early age, Jintana was surrounded by precious oils where she began to learn of their powerful therapeutic properties. Her obsession with candles and her childhood memory of playing with essential oils is brought together in the most therapeutic way she knows – the light of a candle.
AEQUILL is born from the Latin word equal is based on the idea that old and new worlds need to collide to strike a sustainable balance. The first range of five signature fragrances ‘Mum’s Aromatherapy Shop’ is inspired by Jintana’s time helping her mum blend essential oils for her beauty therapy shop.
Presented in elegantly simple 100% recycled glass containers the candles are handmade and hand poured. Jintana’s first job in a chemist’s shop inspired the packaging which she created to have an old apothecary feel. Each box is hand-stamped with a contemporary wax seal.
Grapefruit & Vetiver
In Sri Lanka and India Vetiver is known as the oil of tranquillity for its cooling effect on the mind and body. Its deep, earthy intensity is lifted with a lightness of Grapefruit essential oil and a hint of Ginger for some warmth. The perfect blend to revive, help boost energy levels and create a balanced, grounded feeling. Burn in the late afternoon for a quick pick me up!
Juniper Berry & Cedarwood
The blend of essential oils of Juniper Berry & Cedarwood will help restore your spirit and calm your inner balance. Juniper Berry is bright, fresh and crisp and smells wonderful combined with Cedarwood as the base note. The addition of Bergamot & Vetiver creates a well-balanced candle perfect for those who love rich, woodier notes that will remind you of long walks, tree barks and log fires.
Lavender & Marjoram
A moment of calm… Lavender and Marjoram are combined with Neroli to balance, relax and unwind. Perfect to chase away muscle tensions so be prepared to feel fully relaxed and completely at ease. Recommended for use in the evening when the day is done and there’s nothing left to do other than indulge!
Lemon & Geranium
The fresh scents of Lemon & Geranium are blended with Rosemary & Lavender for a truly uplifting fragrance. Perfect for the days when your mood needs a little pick-me-up or perfect for the days even when you don’t. Best enjoyed day time to help reinvigorate and revive your spirit!
Orange & Ylang Ylang
The rich floral essential oil Ylang Ylang, known as the “flower of flowers”, is balanced with Sweet Orange, Lavender as well as Bergamot to lift the scent giving it a wonderfully soft, sweet smokiness.
