The Arya Butterfly & Butterfly Symbolism

The Arya Butterfly & Butterfly Symbolism

Here at Arya HQ, we are on a mission. A mission to bring something new and vibrant into the candle market. We vehemently believe that business should be used as a force for good.

In a world that is waking up to a new way of living and doing business, Arya has taken the challenge and responsibility to create something that has lasting impact and creates a ripple throughout the world. 

We describe ourselves as a socially and environmentally conscious candle company, and we would like other's to also think about how they can make meaningful change in the natural world, and society.

Arya's 2nd Birthday: From Caterpillar to Butterfly

Arya is 2 years old! And what an exciting time it is for us to be launching a brand new vibrant, vivid look for her. Arya is truly morphing into a beautiful, strong, and compassionate woman.

On Friday 11th November, we are going to be releasing our new look into the world. Arya is coming out of her cocoon, if you will, and what a transformation it will be! 

Since founding the business 2 years ago, we, Lina & Jenny, have sponsored EIGHT women via Women for Women International. These women, from countries such as Afghanistan, Rwanda, and South Sudan, have had their lives changed. They have learned about their human rights, health, community and so much more. These women have in turn educated their children and other women in their community - The ripple effect created is immense. 

We are so very proud of where our business is heading, and loyal customers such as yourself make it all possible.

Stay tuned to our social media accounts  and on Friday 11th visit our webpage to put your name down to be the first to hear when our highly anticipated new candles will be for sale! (And find out why we've been using so much butterfly symbolism!) 

When Friday comes, please share our news far and wide, and help us make a splash!

 

Why We Are Crowdfunding & How We Need Your Help

Why We Are Crowdfunding & How We Need Your Help

In our last blog we revealed that we have been working on an exciting re-brand of Arya Candles. We have spent the last 12 months creating some very exciting designs, a new logo, a new candle container, and a beautiful box which we know will take everyone's breath away. We know we have the WOW factor. 

When Lina and I founded Arya candles we had big dreams and big goals. We knew that our company would be more than just a candle business and we are not women who do things by half. The purpose of our business is to produce gorgeous, elegant products which help to support women in war torn countries via Women for Women International.

In order for us to produce the quantity of candles needed to make a huge impact on the lives of these women and to spread our message far and wide we will be going onto the investment platform Seedrs, to raise the money to make this happen. The money we raise will be used to purchase increased stock, new product development (we have more exciting plans already in the pipeline!), and marketing & branding. We will also be having a complete website make-over to go with our new branding.

Candles, Cakes, & Coffee Breaks: The Magical Feeling of Hygge

Candles, Cakes, & Coffee Breaks: The Magical Feeling of Hygge

Denmark is the happiest country in the world. (I think Scandanavia wins at pretty much everything). 'Hygge' (pronounced hoo-ga) is a Danish concept which is a bit difficult to describe because as ToveMaron Stakkestad has said, "Hygge was never meant to be translated - It was meant to be felt." If we were to try to translate it, we may say 'well-being', or 'cosy', but the essence of hygge goes much deeper. It is all about creating a nice, warm atmosphere, being kind to yourself, and enjoying the little things in life.

How to Choose the Perfect Summer Fragrances for Your Home

How to Choose the Perfect Summer Fragrances for Your Home

All year round candles create a wonderful ambience through the subtle aromas they emit, and the soft light of the flame. Delicate fragrances can create a mood, a memory, and stimulate the senses. A warming cinnamon scent makes us feel cosy and festive, whereas fresh florals encourage us to spring into summer! At Arya, one of our favourite times of year for candles is under the warm summer sun, just as it starts to set into the evening. We also love to fill our home with fresh, natural fragrances of zingy citrus and beautiful florals. 

If you feel overwhelmed by all the different fragrance choices, we are here to help. With our expert knowledge of scents and oils we have some top tips on choosing summer aromas for your home and garden.
