Do you love to cook, but hate that oddly specific smell that lingers in your kitchen long after you've finished cooking? And even though you open all your windows, turn on the ceiling fan, and wave a towel in the air, the smell won't let up?
We've all been there, and lucky for us, Instagram-favorite olive oil brand Brightland just launched a candle to solve your kitchen woes once and for all. Meet the DIGESTIF Candle, your one-wick solution to a fresh-smelling kitchen while you cook up a storm.
A digestif is typically a type of food or drink you enjoy after a big meal to help to aid digestion—and that's just what this candle does for your kitchen. Featuring a long-lasting 40 hour burn time, beautiful 8-ounce glass build, and all-natural ingredients, light the DIGESTIF candle as you cook or post-clean-up for a fresh air feel. You'll sense warm hints of olive oil, neroli, black pepper, and vetiver through the air—no matter if you're grilling fresh salmon or sauteeing garlicky string beans.
Vetiver is a plant native to South India, and so DIGESTIF’s vetiver and black pepper notes immediately take me to my grandparents’ home in South India.” — Brightland Founder & CEO Aishwarya Iyer
Since its launch in 2018, Brightland has become famous for its wildly popular preservative-free olive oils that taste delicious and look beautiful on our countertops. This exciting new great-smelling candle was inspired by Brightland founder and CEO Aishwarya Iyer’s upbringing in South India and her current life in California. "The orange blossom and neroli notes remind me of California’s gorgeous natural bounty, so I feel like a part of my heritage, history and personal story is poured into each candle."
Not only is the DIGESTIF candle aesthetically pleasing, vegan, paraben, and phthalate-free, but Brightland also tapped LA-based candle brand Flores Lane (also woman-founded) to help create it.
We have tirelessly worked on this to make sure that it incorporated our hero product, Brightland olive oil, as well as our core values around sustainability, partnering with California makers and farms, and celebrating striking, vibrant design."
This chic candle launches April 6, which you can shop now, plus read on to see some of our other favorites products from Brightland.
