Like all ladies, I love to be able to pamper myself. Give myself a little me time, run a scorching hot bath with tons of bubbles and light some of my favourite candles to create a home spa experience. Well until this past week I never thought my regular candles could actually be doing me some harm, the paraffin in these like most candles contains harmful toxins and parabens and I’ve been merrily burning away not even giving it a thought.
The past couple of weeks I’ve come to learn that as most things natural is best even when it comes to scenting your home. So when I was introduced to Aroma Works Luxury Candles, the science behind them wasn’t my first thought. My first instinct was to give all of them a real good sniff as that’s important right!! Well these candles aren’t only healthier for you but smell amazing and visitors to my house have even commented on the spa like aromas which all in all creates a very relaxed atmosphere.
Soulful Candle – Wow this candle was a lovely size and although a little pricey for my normal budget, would actually make a lovely fragrance investment. It has lovely exotic scents combining spicy Frankincense and Fruity Juniper Berry and a total of 7 essential oils and has a long burning time and aids in deep relaxation. A sure winner in my bathroom whilst enjoying a soak in the tub.
Burning time: 40 hours Price £43.00
Essential Rose Candle – This fragrance was my least favourite but is by no means an unpleasant smell. It has a very floral odour which I found quite overpowering so didn’t light the candle for a long period of time. The scents are provided by 7 essential oils featuring Rose and Patchouli. This is definitely something I would buy as a gift for example for my nan as she would love this fragrance. The size of this candle is affordable and you still get a great burning time.
Burning time: 20 hours Price £15.00
Inspire Room Mist – The Aroma Works room mist was another one of my favourite fragrances, its scent which combines spicy black pepper and lime to name a few creates a refreshing and pleasant smell and I loved the fact that spraying this in a room meant I was breathing in nothing but essential oils. These oils are known to help reduce fatigue and promote calm and soothing effects.
Price £16.00 on sale normally £20.00
Nurture Reed Diffuser – This was another popular one for me as I love just having a light fragrance in my home which doesn’t mean I have to light a candle all the time. The diffuser releases a lovely subtle fragrance which consist of the essential oils May Chang and Chamomile. This diffuser sits perfectly on your mantlepiece or a shelf and is in a small glass jar to fit in with any room.
