Sustainability and Natural Ingredients: Why They Matter for Your Home

At Neneshe's Botanicals, we believe that home fragrance should not only bring joy and comfort, but also promote health and well-being. That's why we are committed to using eco-friendly and natural ingredients in all of our products, from soy candles to room sprays. In this blog, we'll explore the benefits of using sustainable and natural ingredients, and how they contribute to a healthier and greener home.

Eco-Friendly Soy Wax

Our candles are made from soy wax.  Soy wax is from a vegetable source soybean which is grown in in many countries including the USA. Soy wax is a renewable and sustainable natural source for candle wax because it is made from soybean oil, which is derived from soybeans, a renewable crop. Soybeans are a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to other crops because they are biodegradable and have a lower carbon footprint than other crops.


Soy wax is also a natural source because it is free of harmful chemicals and synthetic additives, making it an environmentally friendly option for candle making. In addition, soy wax is biodegradable and can be easily cleaned up with soap and water, making it a great choice for those looking to reduce their impact on the environment. Overall, soy wax is a renewable, sustainable, and natural source for candle wax that offers many benefits over other wax types.  Our candles are non-toxic and have a cleaner burn when compared to paraffin wax which is a petroleum biproduct. Our soy candles burn slower and provides our customers with a longer lasting candle with practically no black soot being produced.

Premium Quality Fragrance Oils infused with Essential Oils

At Neneshe's Botanicals, we use premium quality fragrance oils infused with essential oils to scent our candles, wax melts, and room sprays. Essential oils are derived from plants and are known for their therapeutic properties, as well as their ability to create a relaxing and uplifting atmosphere.  Premium quality fragrance oils are made from a combination of natural and synthetic materials. 


These fragrance oils are blended together to create a final product that is highly concentrated, long-lasting, and versatile.  The highest quality fragrance oils are made with pure, high-quality ingredients and are carefully formulated to ensure they have a consistent, strong scent that lasts throughout the life of the product.  By using essential oils and natural fragrances, we are reducing the use of harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances, which can irritate the skin, eyes, and respiratory system.

Cotton Braided Wicks & Wooden Wicks

At Neneshe's Botanicals, we use cotton braided wicks and wooden wicks in our candles to ensure an even burn and a clean flame. Cotton braided wicks are made from cotton, a renewable and sustainable resource, and are free from lead and zinc, making them safe for indoor air quality.  

                                                                                                                          Wooden wicks are handcrafted, made in the USA from clean burning FCS Certified Wood and.  The Wooden Wicks offer a unique crackling sound and a cozy ambiance, making them a popular choice for candle enthusiasts.

Both cotton braided wicks and wooden wicks are biodegradable and offer a more sustainable option compared to traditional cotton wicks with metal core.

Glass & Reusable Containers

Another way we are promoting sustainability and reducing waste is by using glass containers and reusable containers for our candles and room sprays. Glass is recyclable and can be repurposed for a variety of uses, such as vases, containers, or drinking glasses. Reusable containers are a convenient and sustainable option for storing our wax melts and room sprays, reducing the need for disposable packaging and containers.


In conclusion, using sustainable and natural ingredients in home fragrance products is an important step towards promoting a healthier and greener home. By choosing Neneshe's Botanicals, you are not only investing in a product that brings joy and comfort, but also in a brand that is committed to promoting sustainability, health, and well-being. We hope this blog has given you a glimpse into the eco-friendly and natural ingredients used in our products, including soy wax, cotton braided wicks, wooden wicks, essential oils, and natural fragrances, and why they matter for your home.
