Incense and Essential Oils | Canadian Brands

Reap the benefits of aromatherapy and burning incense in your home. Did you know that burning incense dates back 1000’s of years (like over 5000 years!?) Humans have been using these beneficial products to bring peace, calm, healing benefits and spirituality into daily life.

Incense Republic sticks are hand dipped and made in Ontario, Canada.  High quality incense that makes a difference. Our brick-and-mortar store has 2 air purifiers that circulate the air very often. Upon burning a mass produced “cheap” incense, our air purifiers sensors go off and flash red notifying us about pollutants in the air. Once we started burning Incense Republic incense, our air purifiers notice smoke and particles in the error, but not remotely close to the commercial incense brand. If you are going to burn incense in your home, make sure it that is as pure and clean as possible. Try out the “Mastery” blend which is a beautiful mix of Orange + Eucalyptus.

Holistick Incense is another Ontario based company that supports creative makers in Bali. Their incense is hand dipped and made from high quality essential oils and botanicals. The difference in quality from this brand to mass produced product is unequivocal.

We carry a wide range of Essential Oils from Fern + Petal, which is a local Vancouver company. They are a small family run company that puts quality first and plant a tree for every order they receive. Try their frankincense essential oil which is a warm, woody top note oil that will help soothe and relax the body and mind. It has moisturizing and soothing properties that are great in skincare.  It can be added to a diffuser, diluted in oil and applied to skin, or can be added to your favourite products like shampoo.

Aromatherapy essential oils are a must have in your self-care arsenal. They remind us to slow down, take a deep breath, and take time to look after our mind and bodies. If you need a nice pick me up during the day, try something invigorating like Peppermint Essential Oil or Lemongrass Essential Oil. If you have troubles winding down at the end of the day or sleeping, try something simple like Lavender Essential Oil or Bergamot Essential Oil.   Tea Tree Essential Oil and Lemon Essential Oil are great for their antibacterial properties and can be mixed with a carrier oil like coconut oil and applied to feet and nails to help mitigate any athletes foot, fungus, or toenail issues.
