In 2004, Abahna was founded by an English woman (Claire Croft) who wanted to re-awaken an approach to ancient bathing. Claire believed that therapeutic benefits of aromatic bathing could prove to be very rewarding by transforming a boring bath routine into a lavishing and sensual ritual. She stated: "A daily bathing ceremony is one of life's simplest luxuries. It is a chance to prepare yourself for the day ahead or reflect on the day just gone."
Claire feels the well-being of the mind, body and spirit is very important and that warm water and pleasant aromas can provide much needed daily relaxation for relieving stress. Even the inspiration for the brand name Abahna prevailed by combining the Urdu, Russian and Portugese words for “to take a bath." Abahna uses luscious scents made of pure essential oils combined with organic botanical extracts to create some of the most relaxing products for creating an ideal bathing environment.
Abahna represents ‘the ceremony of bathing’ in modern times and is dedicated to an ontology of nature using flowers, herbs and trees, as a vast amount of time is put into formulating them as natural and simple as possible. They use only natural hand-poured wax derived from vegetable and plant oils, for clean burning. The collection of British made Abahna Candles and splendidly scented oils and lotions are sold by many of the most distinguished retailers in over twenty countries worldwide.
Abahna Candles have a soft glowing light and are designed to appease and stimulate the senses which make them the perfect candle to use in any room, not just in the bathroom. They are great for burning after a long day at work or for a romantic evening, and they come in four signature fragrances: Frankincense & Sweet Orange, Himalayan Cedarwood & Rose Otto, White Grapefruit & May Chang and Frangipani & Orange Blossom.
Abahna Candles are all natural with perfumes of pure essential oils and waxes that are 100% natural, and Abahna never uses animals for testing. All of the packaging is recyclable and the designs are extremely attractive. Light an Abahna Candle and discover an adventure into the world of aromatherapy. Our favorite fragrance in the collection of Abahna Candles is Frankincense.
The Abahna Frankincense Candle
A most RELAXING and ENTRANCING experience! Frankincense, an aromatic resin also called olibanum, is obtained from the Boswellia tree and is used in incense and perfumes. It has been traded on the Arabian Peninsula and in North Africa for over 5000 years and lavishly used in religious rites because it is believed to represent life. The natural scent of Frankincense combined with Sweet Orange and Madagascan Vanilla gives a warm smoky fragrance that completely relaxes the body and soul.
