A fan favorite here at The Quality Edit, Brightland -- the cult-favorite California olive oil brand known for its ultra-fresh and high quality oils (along with its beautiful branding) -- enters an entirely new category today with the launch of its DIGESTIF Kitchen Candle.
The first of its kind, DIGESTIF is a candle designed to burn specifically during or after cooking -- a digestif for your kitchen, to set the mood for cooking and diffuse a pleasant scent in place of any lingering odors after your meal. Of course, the candle is composed of Brightland’s premium Olive Oil, along with notes of Black Pepper, Neroli, and Vetiver. These fragrance choices are intentional. From Brightland’s founder, Aishwarya Iyer:
"The Brightland DIGESTIF kitchen candle is extra special to me because of its fragrance notes and what they mean to me: 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. 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.”
We’ve raved about Brightland’s delicious olive oils and vinegars, along with the brand’s honest, sustainable, and better-for-you harvesting practices, in countless gift guides and reviews (all the products are really that good). DIGESTIF is no different. The candle is vegan, paraben-free, and phthalate-free, and is hand-poured by female-founded, clean, and sustainable candle company Flores Lane in Los Angeles. It’s also made of recycled glass, and the use of Brightland’s olive oil in the candle itself not only improves its scent throw, but also extends its lifespan.
Like all of Brightland’s other products, DIGESTIF comes in an aesthetically stunning package -- perfect for gifting this Mother’s Day and into Spring.
