I was recently fortunate enough to come into contact with the very talented creators behind Sugi Tree Studio and participate in a collaboration. And guys.. I am simply obsessed!! I honestly don’t know where to begin this review because there are that many great things to say about the company. With this said, I’m going to try and pinpoint my favourite things in point form.
Before we begin I just want to share a bit of Sugi Tree Studio’s back story. As stated on their website: “Sugi Tree Studio, named after one of the oldest trees in the world, strives to make quality products that create a long lasting impact on our customers, the environment, and the charities we support. All of our products are hand-crafted in our Toronto studio and we take pride in the care and detail put into each and every one. We consider ourselves a team of conscious creators who make home and bath products that not only smell deliciously irresistible, but that promote sustainability, customer well-being, and support animals in need. Drawing inspiration from the world around us, we incorporate a variety of natural ingredients from around the world in our unique formulas!”.
Now let’s begin the review!!
Each one of Sugi Tree Studio’s candles are made of 100% soy wax blended with a small addition of beeswax, before infused with various essential and fragrance oils. Thus, enabling the candle to both burn cleaner and for more hours than those candles made using paraffin wax. Sugi Tree Studios also ensures that all of their fragrances are phthalate free!
Oh my GOSH do their candles ever smell good!! As I was lucky enough to choose my own candle scent for this collaboration, I decided to go with their Moroccan Rose & Sea Salt scent from the Compass Collection. For those of you who know me it will be pretty clear why the Moroccan Rose & Sea Salt was my candle of choice; I am obsessed with floral scents. And boy, the scent from this candle did not disappoint; it was simply delicious!
P.S. Even Broccoli loves the scent!!
Each one of Sugi Tree Studio’s candles are poured into re-usable apothecary jars- allowing re-use of the jars. In fact, they’ve included a step by step guide on how to clean your jar once the candle’s burn life is over. They suggest the cute idea of re-purposing the jar as a vase! I’ll include that information here.
Cause & Donations (#CANDLEFORACAUSE)
As Sugi Tree Studio’s home and bath products are inspired by nature, the creators feel it both necessary and important to somehow give back to nature with each purchase. So, with every purchase made, 10% of their revenue is then donated to various animal and habitat rescue organizations. These hand chosen organizations include the Toronto Humane Society, Rocky Mountain Animal Rescue, Wildlife Rescue Association of BC, Ontario SPCA, and the World Wildlife Fund.
Canadian Based & Created
As a Canadian blogger I was so excited to learn of Sugi Tree Studio’s Canadian identity! I love the fact that with each purchase I make through their company, I am supporting a local business as well as supporting local animal rescue programs and environmental sustainability.
Sugi Tree Studio NEVER has and NEVER will test on animals; allowing customers to be more conscious consumers.
Ring candles, need I say more? Sugi Tree Studio offers a wide variety of natural gemstone rings worth up to $5,000 within their ring candles. The best part is the unique ring designs- unlike other ring candle manufacturers, Sugi Tree Studio uses handmade gemstone rings from Hawkhouse Designs and ARTISUNtis. Their ring collection includes natural gemstone pieces from all over the world, such as quartz, amethyst, turquoise, and aquamarine, as well as rings that are gold, silver and rose-gold plated. Much more uniquely appealing than the costume jewelry found in other ring candles!
Okay so obviously I had to include this little tid bit. Not only does Sugi Tree Studio carry amazing home and bath products, but they also have a cute hedgehog!! As a hedgehog mother myself, I clearly needed to find a way to incorporate Broccoli into this photoshoot… and that is exactly what Jorja and I did.
To conclude my review I would like to thank Sugi Tree Studio for the irresistibly delicious scented candle they sent me, as well as Jorja from Jorja Coral Photography for the cutest pictures ever!! I would also like to take this opportunity to recommend Sugi Tree Studio to anyone and everyone. Not only are their home and bath products made with impeccable quality, but they also give back to nature through the revenue made from each purchase. Make sure to check out their website here, and their Instagram here.
