Rambling's from Ambrosial HQ

By Kelly Wright 12 Feb, 2017
A warm and fragrant waxy welcome to this long overdue blog post.
All has been incredibly busy at Ambrosial HQ,  getting feedback for the new site and ironing out any glitches alongside  all the lovely wax thats being made. 

Firstly Id like to say a very big thank you to Sarah Newman from Sarah Newman Photography  for the absolutely stunning photographs which have been used around the website. Every single shot captures a dreaminess and idyllic sense of warmth.  A very talented and creative lady who captures dreamy, timeless moments like no other. Sarah specialises in natural light photography for newborns, portraiture and weddings. Really do go and take a look at her   website  for more examples of the magic Sarah brings to her beautiful photographic works of art. 

Now whilst browsing the internet the other night, geeking out on all things smell related as I do....  I chanced upon a list of people's top ten best smells. I had a little read and thought I would share here for you to have a read of.

This is how it reads: 
  •  The smell of winter at night
  •  Freshly-shampooed girl hair
  • Fall morning (crisp air, damp leaves)
  • No. 4 The water rides at Disneyland/Disney World (Pirates of Caribbean, It’s a Small World, Splash Mountain) 
  • No. 5 Apple Pie 
  • No. 6 Clean laundry fresh out of the dryer
  • No. 7 Cookies baking in the oven
  • No. 8 Campfire
  • No. 9 Vanilla extract
  • No. 10 Freshly-baked bread (or bakeries in general)

Shows us how powerful the connection between smell and memory really is. If I were to smell any of the above it would bring back a memory for me. how about you? It's fascinating how unique and personal our senses of smell are. Recently scientific research suggested humans have the ability to detect 1 trillion different smells. We detect smell by inhaling air which contains odour molecules that bind to the receptors which send messages to the brain. Although we have the ability to detect a trillion scents,  we may not all be able identify all of them... explaining why we all have a unique take on the same fragrance.

Two of the most common questions we get asked are "What is your best smelling melt? & " Which is the strongest smelling fragrance?"
There are no specific answers to these questions really, everyone is different so I have decided to share with you a list of our most in demand fragrances, the ones which sell out quickly and the ones I get asked for most often. These are defined by customer trends and we will call them our

   Top Ten Best Smellers
  • Love Affair in Lavender
  • Cuban Heal
  • Hippy Mumma
  • Ms Anarchist
  • Nunite Bubba
  • New Baby
  • Downy Blue
  • Docs n Frocks
  • Snow Fairies
  • Back to Black
So if your unsure where to start on your scented journey with Ambrosial Wax one of our top smeller's would be a good starting point. All of these fragrances are strong throwing meaning you will comfortably fragrance a medium sized room.

Currently the website is restocked every 2 weeks although we do plan to do weekly restocks in the future as products do tend to sell out very quickly, if you subscribe to our newsletter you can keep up to date with the latest restock dates and what new fragrances you can expect to see. This is a new feature for the site and the first newsletter will go out in March with details of our new themed collection and how you can put your name down for a pre order. As the newsletter isn't ready in time for the next restock here are just  some of the fragrances you will find available on the 12th February

  • Celestial Kisses
  • Love Affair in Lavender
  • Sex Appeal
  • Penelope
  • You Sexy Thing
  • Rose Patchouli
  • Love Spell
  • Lavender Linen
  • Ms Anarchist

For now a warm and waxy farewell 
Love, light and positivity

Hello and welcome to our brand new online scent and bath boutique.



For weeks now we have been busy preparing for this day and now here we are.



For those new to the site here at Ambrosial we handmake gorgeous and unusual wax melts . We stock a huge range of fragrances and restock the store every two weeks with new scents added each time.



Our unique wax melts are made from ecosoy wax which melts at a lower temperature to paraffin wax thus releasing our gorgeous fragrances into the air faster.



We choose quirky names and funky artwork to bring our products to life and give you a unique and lovingly handcrafted product experience.

Every tiny detail is thought about meticulously and we pride ourselves on quality.



There's lots of new fragrances been added to the wax boutique and of course some of our all time favourites are in there too. .



And yes you did read that correctly earlier, Ambrosial Boutique are proud to present our new bath boutique . A whole section of the store devoted to some of the very best handmade bath and body products. All of the products we have chosen for you are made strictly with the same natural and cruelty free ethics we follow when making our scented wax melts. All products in our boutique have been handmade in the U.K. with love and attention to detail.



None of our products have been tested on animals nor have any of the ingredients and never will we stock anything that has. We love animals and do not believe humans have the right to use them in such barbaric ways.



We do not use any palm oil or anything else from an unsustainable source in our products and use recycled and recyclable packaging wherever possible because we love our planet.



Ambrosial boutique has been created with love and we wish to spread love and positivity with our lovingly created unique wax melts and bath products. Gift your friends and family or treat yourself to a little bit of our love ❤️



Our unusual wax melts make an ideal gift, the only problem you may have is deciding which ones to choose, so to help you out we have plenty of wax gifts and hampers in the store ready to ship including hand knitted stockings full of wax melts and hampers with bath and wax products.



We hope you enjoy the new website, please take a look around and let us know what you think, we love to hear all of your feedback and suggestions.



On a final note we would just like to highlight that your safety is incredibly important to us so every product we sell has compliant labelling and all allergens identified for allergy sufferers. We are also fully insured with Lloyds business insurance. 

Until the next time....love, light and positivity from Kelly at Ambrosial Boutique x

Wow Hello again,

Firstly i would like to thank you all for your orders and support, we welcome feedback and love seeing your pictures and posts on social media.

This week i would like to introduce you to the Riot Grrrl collection, I am so super happy with this collection. Its out there, its punky and it packs a punch. For those of you who aren't familiar with the riot grrrl movement heres a little bit of information...or better still go and check it out. Its not for the feint hearted though so be warned!!

RIOT GRRRL MANIFESTO

BECAUSE us girls crave records and books and fanzines that speak to US that WE feel included in and can understand in our own ways.

BECAUSE we wanna make it easier for girls to see/hear each other's work so that we can share strategies and criticize-applaud each other.

BECAUSE we must take over the means of production in order to create our own moanings.

BECAUSE viewing our work as being connected to our girlfriends-politics-real lives is essential if we are gonna figure out how we are doing impacts, reflects, perpetuates, or DISRUPTS the status quo.

BECAUSE we recognize fantasies of Instant Macho Gun Revolution as impractical lies meant to keep us simply dreaming instead of becoming our dreams AND THUS seek to create revolution in our own lives every single day by envisioning and creating alternatives to the bullshit christian capitalist way of doing things.

BECAUSE we want and need to encourage and be encouraged in the face of all our own insecurities, in the face of beergutboyrock that tells us we can't play our instruments, in the face of "authorities" who say our bands/zines/etc are the worst in the US and

BECAUSE we don't wanna assimilate to someone else's (boy) standards of what is or isn't.

BECAUSE we are unwilling to falter under claims that we are reactionary "reverse sexists" AND NOT THE TRUEPUNKROCKSOULCRUSADERS THAT WE KNOW we really are.

BECAUSE we know that life is much more than physical survival and are patently aware that the punk rock "you can do anything" idea is crucial to the coming angry grrrl rock revolution which seeks to save the psychic and cultural lives of girls and women everywhere, according to their own terms, not ours.

BECAUSE we are interested in creating non-heirarchical ways of being AND making music, friends, and scenes based on communication + understanding, instead of competition + good/bad categorizations.

BECAUSE doing/reading/seeing/hearing cool things that validate and challenge us can help us gain the strength and sense of community that we need in order to figure out how bullshit like racism, able-bodieism, ageism, speciesism, classism, thinism, sexism, anti-semitism and heterosexism figures in our own lives.

BECAUSE we see fostering and supporting girl scenes and girl artists of all kinds as integral to this process.

BECAUSE we hate capitalism in all its forms and see our main goal as sharing information and staying alive, instead of making profits of being cool according to traditional standards.

BECAUSE we are angry at a society that tells us Girl = Dumb, Girl = Bad, Girl = Weak.

BECAUSE we are unwilling to let our real and valid anger be diffused and/or turned against us via the internalization of sexism as witnessed in girl/girl jealousism and self defeating girltype behaviors.

BECAUSE I believe with my wholeheartmindbody that girls constitute a revolutionary soul force that can, and will change the world for real.

"The Riot Grrrl Movement began in the early 1990s by Washington State band Bikini Kill and lead singer Kathleen Hanna.The riot grrrl manifesto was published 1991 in the BIKINI KILL ZINE 2"

In other news we have started a little  Facebook group  up so come along and get involved, we will introduce lots of special offers for members as well as friendly chat, reviews, and photos.

We have another sampler being launched next week, 9 new fragrances for you to try and not forgetting another new collection later on in August.

Love, light and positivity

Hello my lovely wax loving friends and welcome to this weeks blog.

I havent had chance to blog since our trip to Glastonbury, we had a fabulous time and took the cubs with us for their first time at Worthy Farm to celebrate mine and hubbies first wedding anniversary. We honeymooned at Glastonbury last year and have a definite bond with the beautiful land there. I can also say the facilities and help given to those with disabilities is outstanding. Youngest cub has autism and we were allowed around the back of stages through special walkways to avoid the masses of crowds.

So.... fully inspired by our week on Worthy Farm i have created the Festival Fever collection, all unique house blends not to be found anywhere else. These are limited stock so grab some while we still have them in the shop.

I have been busy over the last couple of days listing scents, so most of our scents are available now to purchase in the store as melt pots (50g) , wax pies (200g) and clamshells (cubes of 6).

Our collections and limited edition melts will be listed individually so they are easier for you to find.

The  fr agrance men u  has been updated and I will be adding to the list regularly.

All of our products now carry CLP compliant labelling on the bottom of each melt,this is something I have been working on for sometime now in order to get them absolutely correct.

I have also just finished testing our new scoopable wax and it will be available soon on the store.

There is a like and share competition over on our  Facebook page  so pop over for your chance to win two 50g melt pots in our exclusive best selling blends vintage tea party and intergalactic candy pop.

I hope you enjoy the updates to the site and please do get in touch and let us know what you would like to see in my wax shop , maybe have a scent named after you.

Love, light and positivity to you all

Kelly xx
