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!

 

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.

#SheWhoShines 8. Emmeline Pankhurst - The Woman Who Fought For Women's Right To Vote

#SheWhoShines 8. Emmeline Pankhurst - The Woman Who Fought For Women's Right To Vote

Emmeline Pankhurst, a fiery, determined and courageous woman, paved the way for feminists by defying the traditional roles of 'wife' and 'mother' .

Emmeline Goulden was born in Manchester, England, in 1858. Her parents were both political activists and supporters of women’s right. Emmeline is considered to be one of the leaders of the suffragette movement in the UK who led the way to win the right for women to vote.  In 1879 at the age of 20 she married Richard Pankhurst, a barrister and a supporter of the women's suffrage movement.

#SheWhoShines - 2. Margaret Hamilton, The Woman Who Took Us To The Moon

#SheWhoShines - 2. Margaret Hamilton, The Woman Who Took Us To The Moon

It was the 1960's, a time where women were not generally encouraged to seek out high-powered work, especially not work that was usually done by men. Margaret Hamilton, a 24 year-old mother with an undergrad degree in mathematics, working at MIT, had planned to support her husband through Harvard Law. After that, she would work on her own graduate degree. And that's when the Apollo Space program came along at MIT, which would ultimately find her in a position to lead one of the biggest feats of humankind.

Corporate Gifting to Support Women in War-Torn Countries

It seems only yesterday that we were so thrilled to be sponsoring our first woman from a war-torn country via Women for Women International. Her name is Barfi, from Afghanistan, and soon she will be completing her year long program where she will have learned an abundance of valuable information. The value of this year long program is tremendous as she can now educate her children with what she has learned. 

Skip forward a year, and we're now sponsoring our fourth woman! 




It is with big thanks to PicassoHR that we have been able to sponsor Valentine from Rwanda

 

PicassoHR ordered 100 candles for their 15th anniversary which enabled us to support another woman for a year. We created a bespoke candle for them, with beautiful etching on the purple jar, as a special way of commemorating their anniversary. The fragrance was Plum & Patchouli, a sophisticated scent of dark berries, cinnamon and clove, with floral accords of rose

Valentine completed her first module in December 2015. During this module, 'Sustaining an Income', she has learned how to overcome inequalities which prevent women from gaining economic self-sufficiency. Valentine and her classmates have also worked on increasing their confidence and challenging beliefs that women's value is secondary to that of a man. They have focused in on how to manage family resources, the value of saving, and types of economic activities they can become involved in. She is currently in Module II, 'Health & Wellness', where she will learn about prevention, treatment and management of key health issues, including basic family health, psychological health, and reproductive health.
