Our veggie candle is more than just a candle – it is like a small fireplace. Doing it the Hetkinen way, there is of course a wooden wick in the candle. From the tree species, we decided to use Finnish aspen as the wick of the candle. Aspen burns with a beautiful, silent, and safe flame.

Wooden wick requires a bit more from the user than a normal wick candle. When you remember to trim the black part away from the wick between burns, you will always have a candle that burns beautifully.

The vegetable wax in the candle contains spruce resin that burns cleanly and without emissions. Between using the candle, the melted wax creates beautiful layers in the candle, just like annual rings in a tree.


An artless, bright greenery.

Scent: birch, pine, eucalyptus, lemon

non-gmo rapeseed wax, non-gmo soy wax, birch essential oil, peppermint essential oil, lemon essential oil, eucalyptus essential oil

Sweet Birch Essential Oil

Sweet birch essential oil has a sweet, minty and fresh aroma that is instantly soothing and uplifting to the mind.

Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint’s fresh and cooling scent is familiar to many. It stimulates the mind, and alleviates stress, depression, and fatigue. The refreshing nature of peppermint also aids concentration.

Organic Lemon Essential Oil

The fresh and clean scent of lemon invigorates you and enhances productivity. Lemon is beneficial for digestion and circulation. It also aids itchy or irritated skin and can help combat cellulite.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil

Essential oil of eucalyptus carries a fresh minty and spicy camphor scent. The oil also functions as an antiseptic, and will strengthen and invigorate a tired mind.


Genuine, likeable, tree loving.

Pine Extract

The fine, forest-scented oil extract is obtained as a by-product from needles and cones left over from forest care. A sniff of resin extract immediately creates the feeling of freshness and clarity familiar from forest walks. Pine extract refreshes and strengthens against fatigue and increases positivity and renewed vitality.

Pine Essential Oil

The essential oil of pine brings the fresh scent of a forest into the product. It opens and strengthens your airways. Pine oil also enhances blood circulation and reduces muscle pain, as well as arthritic symptoms. Resin scented pine oil is known to increase positive traits such as durability, persistence and self-confidence.

Vetiver Essential Oil

Vetiver essential oil is earthy and green. It is recommended after physical exercise or when experiencing fatigue.

Rosemary Essential Oil

Rosemary oil smells spicy fresh and stimulates blood circulation.

Smoke Sauna

A sensual, smoky atmosphere.

Scent: pine tar, smoke, eucalyptus

non-gmo rapeseed wax, non-gmo soy wax, fir needle essential oil, pine tar, juniper essential oil, lavender essential oil, eucalyptus essential oil

Fir Essential Oil

The fresh, pine-like aroma of fir is used to soothe feelings of anxiety and combat daily stress. The oil is steam distilled from a fragrant evergreen tree that thrives in the remote forests. Fir oil improves circulation and is naturally antiseptic.

Pine Tar

Tar is a dark, thick, and viscous liquid pyrolyzed in high heat from a resinous pine. Tar as a flavouring has a recognisable smell and taste. Tar has been an important substance in the Finnish folk healing.

Juniper Essential Oil

Juniper is one of the best known traditional medicinal plants of Finland. Essential oil is made from its ripe, black berries. Juniper berry oil provides a grounding and calming effect that can help balance emotions.

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender oil relaxes, soothes, and balances out the body and mind.

Hetkinen Moment

Hetkinen is a Finnish word and means wait a minute in English. When the Finns are thinking something, they usually say Hetkinen.
On this day, as we live a hectic life, it is important to have a Hetkinen moment for yourself. Stop for a while and calm down. When you apply for example hand balm to your hands, it is your Hetkinen for yourself.

We honour the wisdom of Nordic nature and all that it has to offer us. That’s why we choose and source our ingredients mindfully and use the purest essential oils that both smell good and do good.

The whole Hetkinen line of products is planned to be fit for everyone regardless of gender, age, or skin type. You don’t have to spend time choosing different products. Our products at Hetkinen are suitable for everyone. And this way, we can save your time as well.

Life is short and every moment is precious.



Based in Turku, Finland, Hetkinen was founded in 2018 by designer and former sales manager, Mona Isotupa. Mona defines herself as “a mother of two children, feminist, vegetarian, animal and nature lover,” as well as being an activist against deforestation. The company drives inspiration from the Finnish forests and trees. The design approach is careful and minimalist. Everything is made in harmony with the nature.

Hetkinen’s mission is to bring people closer to nature in their busy everyday lives via high-quality product innovations. All of Hetkinen’s products are gender-neutral, vegan, and manufactured in Finland at the company’s own factory.

Hetkinen uses Finnish pine heartwood for their jars and containers. It takes a pine tree 40 years to begin to produce heartwood, so it is used sparingly & respectfully, and as such, knots or stains in the wood are not discarded. Pine heartwood is used for it’s superior resistance to rot, antibacterial properties, and because it doesn’t absorb moisture.
