What is Aequill?
We’re often asked where our unique name - Aequill - stems from; the word ‘aequilibrium’ is Latin, and is simply defined as ‘to level’ or ‘balance’. It’s this feeling that we try to infuse into all of our product offerings, so that every fragrance for our scented candles is truly harmonious. That’s what makes our scented candles such a perfect gift - for yourself, or a loved one.
What goes into your candles?
At Aequill, all of our products are made using a blend of raw, natural, and refined materials, to ensure the exceptional combination of scents that delivers emotive benefits. During the creation of our scented candles, we blend the purest possible essential oils with soy-mineral wax, which is renowned for its longer burning time and cleaner burning abilities vs. some alternatives.
Our recipes were devised around traditional aromatherapy practices, and the emotion and satisfaction that can be derived from just the right blend of scents. Meanwhile, our innovative soy wax blend enables each of our candles to provide exceptionally strong scent-throw with a more cohesive and balanced slow-burn stability.
Which fragrance options do you currently offer?
We currently offer a range of seven incredible fragrances within our scented candle range, encompassing everything from herbaceous florals to earthy woods and spices, to vibrant citruses and sultry exotics. These all form part of our first core collection, the Mum’s Aromatherapy Shop Home Fragrance Range, designed to soothe and provide relaxation to combat the stress of everyday life.

Where are Aequill fragrances sourced from?
All of our blends are made from a 100% custom blend, which we create in-house. That means our incredible aromatherapy benefits are totally unique to us, and why we pride ourselves so much on our ability to deliver the perfect sense of balance with each and every candle.
We’re incredibly proud of each and every one of our blends, and this first collection, ‘Mum’s Aromatherapy Shop’ was in development for four years before being completed, just so we could ensure every single blend was just right.
How are your luxury scented candles made?
Each of our candles is hand-poured by our small, East London team, utilising the same traditional pouring methods we’ve been using since the start of Aequill, creating small batches of the best quality products possible - and we think it makes all the difference.
We also utilise a bespoke cotton wick for all candles, which offers a longer burn time and reduces sooting for each use.
Every single Aequill scented candle comes in a high-quality, clear glass jar with a heavy base, meaning you don’t have to worry about heat transduction or the associated negative impact it could have in your home. These glass jars are all individually labelled with matt black foil on a natural brown label, making them a neutral accessory for any home.
