A Comforting Candle Company ft. Candle Spa*


Something that I've never really spoken about on my blog before is my love for anything, and everything to do with relaxation. I do talk about self-care quite regularly, and I know there's a link between the two to some extent, but today, I thought I'd take the time to mention a candle company that I discovered a couple of months ago, as it's always good to introduce a new type of content!

Back in November, I got in touch with Candle Spa, who create, and sell natural soy wax candles that help to provide people with that everyday spa feeling. I was very kindly sent this Lavender & Black Pepper Candle to review for all of you, as well as the Lady Ashleigh Reed Diffuser. 

I was absolutely blown away by both of these gifts. Everything feels luxurious about this brand, from the boxes the products come in, and the individual packaging to the scents themselves. Even though I've never been to a spa, or anything of the sort, I can genuinely imagine immersing myself into that experience whenever I smell these two products. They're absolutely divine, and I think that they would work perfectly in a home, a salon, a spa, or even guest houses/hotels. 

Not everybody can afford to have a spa day, or pamper themselves regularly, if ever, but these people may work incredibly hard on a daily basis, and want nothing more than to add some serenity to their routine for a change. Considering the candle on its own is £12, I don't think many of us would be able to resist that offer. You can burn one whilst reading a book, having a bath, cuddling up on the sofa, or literally anything else that takes your fancy. Even if you don't want to start burning it right away, it still looks beautiful, and chic whilst on display, and I guarantee any visitors will ask about the brand, and where they can make a purchase from!

In regards to the packaging, I got sent a note with very interesting information on it, so I thought that rather than giving a poor explanation myself, I'll just insert what that says here:

"The core values of the Candle Spa brand are to provide a self-indulgent product in a recognisable quality pack that reflects the image of a hand-poured luxury product made here in the UK. Aimed at four star hotels and Spa's on the commercial side, it's measure of success is to see how well the packs sit within that environment; and on every count it achieves that objective. The original concept was created in-house using natural images of pebbles/hot stones and a floral accompaniment to provide fragrance differentiation amongst the product range. The majority of the packs display an orchid, as this is often used as decoration within Spa's and Beauty Salons and evokes a sense of quality, and relaxation. Orchids also represent longevity, which we feel our products offer the consumer, with the diffusers lasting up to 3 months (50% longer than some well-known competitor products). The teal foiling and gloss lamination provides a real on-shelf focus of luxury, and quality, better-reflecting a cosmetic brand rather than a home decor one."

As well as the candles being made of natural soy wax, they also have non-metal wicks, to which they add luxury blends of fragrance oils to help create an added feeling of utter relaxation. The company's Spa range comes in 3 different sizes, which are 20cl, 30cl, and 50cl (the 3 wick one!). It's thought that they last approximately 30, 45, and 80 hours, proving that you get incredible value for money, and they aren't even extortionately  pricey in the first place! 

Some of the scents that you can choose from include: Patchouli & Ginger, Pomegranate & White Fig, Spicy Pear, Woodsage & Sea Salt, Lotus Flower, and then (obviously) Lavender & Black Pepper, to name just a few of them. 

Whatever it is that you're on the hunt for, I'm sure you will be able to find something to satisfy all of your senses if you go and check out Candle Spa's website. You definitely won't regret it!

Are you a candle lover? What sort of scents are your favourites?

Lots of love always,
