I AM ... (chamomile + spearmint with citrus, sage, lavender + eucalyptus)
MORE THAN THIS ... (ginger, cucumber + aloe with agave, mint, lemon, mimosa + cedar)
This range has been created with the sole intention of supporting the Leukaemia Foundation and those who need them. I know, because I was one of them. Loobylou Candles was an idea formed in an isolation room at Royal North Shore Hospital in 2011. It was during my treatment for Stage 4 Angio-immunoblastic T-Cell Lymphoma that I planned my own candle range full of nothing but goodness. It is only by the grace of numerous blood donors, and an incredible young man donating his bone marrow that I'm even here to offer these products to you.
The two scents have been inspired by things that made me feel a little better when combating my own treatment side-effects, low energy and general feelings of it all being just a little more than I could handle. These candles are made by someone who walks this journey with you, and are named to be a reminder for those still fighting, on the days when you need reminding that: You Are, and you are so much More Than This...
The flame itself represents the beautifully fierce yet fragile nature of your life force. The idea of the mists are that the patient / carer / friend still has access to the healing fragrances, and can still create a moment of pause or reflection. This are suitable in any space where a candle may not be suitable (ie. a hospital room with oxygen tanks!) As you know, the whole range is designed using healing ingredients that made me feel better during my own worst chemo / nausea / exhausted moments.
The candle celebrates you, your life, and your fight. The profits are being directly donated to a cause that supports you during this journey. This is a promise I made back in that room in 2011 when it didn't look like I'd see light again, so I dreamed of a flame. This is the why.
