Natural Fragrance

What does it mean?


We say that Cotswold Pure candles are made entirely of natural fragrances.  So what do we mean by that?


When we say that our Cotswold Pure candles are composed of natural fragrances, we mean that all of the scents were extracted from a plant by steam or heat extraction, cold pressing, or carbon dioxide extraction.  Natural fragrance means pure essential oils, not synthetic fragrance oils made in a laboratory.


Below is a list of the ingredients in our scent and an explanation for how each ingredient was extracted from the plant.
