AEQUILL was created by Jintana Khieochuam. Born in Thailand, she moved to London with her mother who owned a beauty therapy practice. From an early age Jintana was surrounded by precious oils where she began to learn of their powerful therapeutic properties. Her obsession with candles and her childhood memory of playing with essential oils is brought together in the most therapeutic way she knows – the light of a candle.
AEQUILL is born from the Latin word equal is based on the idea that old and new worlds need to collide to strike a sustainable balance. The first range of five signature fragrances ‘Mum’s Aromatherapy Shop’ is inspired by Jintana’s time helping her mum blend essential oils for her beauty therapy shop.
Presented in elegantly simple 100% recycled glass containers the candles are handmade and hand poured. Jintana’s first job in a chemist’s shop inspired the packaging which she created to have an old apothecary feel. Each box is hand-stamped with a contemporary wax seal.
Orange & Ylang Ylang
The rich floral essential oil Ylang Ylang, known as the “flower of flowers”, is balanced with Sweet Orange, Lavender as well as Bergamot to lift the scent giving it a wonderful soft, sweet smokiness. It is both sensual and exotic and we can be used throughout the day to help soften tension and calm the heart.
