A Brand Introduction
Ashley & Co is a modern day scent company. What began over twelve years ago as a unique collaboration between a husband and wife duo in Auckland, New Zealand is now a growing, creative brand.
So – why Ashley & Co?
Ashley & Co believes people don’t remember the days – they remember the moments.
Being a modern day scent company means they’re not into whimsical fantasy. They don’t promote dreams. Their scents won’t transport you to a medina in Morocco.
They’re much more excited by the potential of your reality.
Because our lives are a series of moments, they go by really fast. We schedule in half our segments and often don’t notice the minutes in-between. Ashley & Co. encourages you to make the most of the moments – to connect with yourself and the present.
Washing hands, lighting a candle, moisturizing before bed or in the car on the way to school drop off – we know these can be ritualistic moments to pique the senses and regain some semblance of connectivity with the present.
The kids might be hungry and the dog barking and the laundry hanging on the line for another day. But that’s ok!
Make the most of the moment.
Designed & formulated in New Zealand, Ashley & Co spans 8 signature scent profiles with over 40 products. WE are delighted to present to you quite an expansive range of their products online and in store. Washups
(Hand & Body Soap), Wash Locks (Hair Care), SootherUps (Hand & Body Lotion), Waxed Candles & Home Diffusers.

Smudging is a symbolic exercise found in feng shui practice, many Native American traditions and alternative healing practices. It involves burning selected herbs or other materials in a manner that fills the home or other space with the fragrance of the smoke, and it is thought to clear negative energy.
Smudging can sound a bit intimidating to beginners and may seem unsafe or complicated, but in reality, it is quite easy and completely safe. Here are some reasons to smudge.
#1 NEW HOME, NEW BEGINNINGS
Many believe it is a good idea to do smudging before moving into a new home. This is because you want to release any negative energy the former occupants left behind. It will give you a fresh start in your new home.
#2 AFTER A BAD DAY
Some days are downright unbelievable. And sometimes you can almost feel the negativity sweeping up inside this. This is a good time for smudging as it neutralises the energy within you.
#3 3RD PARTY NEGATIVITY
We are not saying you should not listen to your friend in need and distress. Be a positive person and help your distressed friend as best you can.
Just be aware of the negative energy left behind, it could aversely affect you. You can do a quick fix by smudging the space.
#4 STRESS RELIEF
Burning sage is a great ally against stress.
A 2016 research project for the University of Mississippi established that white sage is rich in compounds that activate certain receptors in the brain. These receptors are responsible for elevating mood levels, reducing stress, and even alleviating pain.
#5 ODOR REMOVAL
For some, this may be the best of all benefits: Sage / Palo Santo is a lovely incense with a divine aroma, pure and simple.
It also works great as a chemical-free air freshener or odor controller.
Garlands are the perfect ensemble to dress up any space. It promotes depth and texture to a seemingly ordinary space. Affix it on the wall or across an empty crevice and voila, instant gratification.
Trays of all shapes and sizes help hold a look together. Good for bedside tables, doorway consoles, work desks; essentially any tabletop surface. It’s great for the OCD driven individual to perfectly group their items together. Also, especially helpful for the messy and forgetful.
TIP: Always group items in odd numbers and play around with different heights.
#3 ART PRINTS
Art prints undeniably jazz up any wall but you don’t have to break the bank to own a piece of art. Try painting your own canvas, be creative, it’s a great way to destress as well.
TIP: You don’t have to hang up your art prints. You may also lean them against the wall or put them on your book shelf to add extra depth to an otherwise ordinary setting.
#4 FAUX PLANTS
Many argue that faux plants don’t look as good as the real thing and yes while we agree… Faux plants also don’t die. That’s our only argument. The modern working class hero doesn’t have time to tend to a living plants requirements but that isn’t to say that you can’t add a little green to your humble abode.
TIP: There are several types of faux plants to choose from but we recommend using fern leaves in odd numbers. They don’t attract so much dust and their shape accentuate any space.
#5 SMALL CATCH ALL DISH
Smaller catch all dishes are great for room organization. Everyone owns some kind of trinket, bits and bobs that we keep losing. Hair ties, earrings, cufflinks and the link all deserve it’s own little catch all dish.
Have fun sprucing up your home! Get creative, there really are no rules. Everyone has their own idea of a perfect home.

You likely know from experience that the way a space smells can affect your mood. Obviously, if you’re in a place that has a disagreeable smell it, you are more likely to be in a bad mood.
Conversely, if you walk into a room that features a pleasant smell, you are more likely to be a good mood. However, your sense of smell may affect your moods much more than you may know. Smell is the most sensitive of the senses. As infants, smell is the first sense to develop. Our noses have as many as six million odor detecting cells.

Just as a diffuser elevates mood, many use it to reduce anxiety and promote peace of the body and mind. It creates a calming effect in your home that is great for when you’re feeling burned out or depressed. It also sets a positive atmosphere and inspires high spirits whenever you need them most.
#3 BOOSTS IMMUNE SYSTEM
A lot of essential oils have antibacterial and antiviral effects all which protect your immune system once inhaled. By diffusing the oils into the air, airborne germs are warded off before you become ill. It is a great way to keep cold, flu and other illnesses at bay.

#5 RELIEVES PAIN
Applying oils directly to the body may be the most effective way to relieve pain. But, using a diffuser can also extend their effects. When essential oils are inhaled, they enter our bloodstream thus, internally relieve persistent pain in the head, muscle or joints.
