I discovered Becky, the woman behind Hazel & Blue Candles, on Instagram and loved everything about her ethos. Inspired by nature and the seasons, her lovely hand poured soy candles are made from natural eco-friendly, high quality 100% soy wax and a blend of premium fragrance oil all sourced in the UK. She uses clean cotton wicks and recyclable containers – these tins are great for storage. She makes everything by hand in small batches in her kitchen in Wiltshire. These candle tins are perfect for people who like to use candles in different rooms or spaces. They’re compact and portable and fit into a weekend luggage bag or handbag. They burn longer and cleaner than paraffin wax. I’ve chosen my 3 favourite summery fragrances:
Botanical & Vetiver blends the delicate scent of rare botanical orchid with a spicy accent of anise and the warmth of vetiver, amber and clove, creating an unique and calming scent. I hadn’t heard of Vetiver before, but it’s an Indian grass known for its healing properties.
Orange Blossom is a brand new scent, fresh and floral and perfect for summer. It’s a vibrant citrus fragrance with top notes of sweet mandarin combined with orange blossom and jasmine.
Sea Salt & Wood makes me think of campfires on the beach. It’s a lovely warm scent with top notes of Sage and Grapefruit, Tangerine and Bergamot and bottom notes of Amber & Cedar wood.
Burn time: approx 25 hours per candle.
Candle Care: Burn the candle for up to 2 hours for the first burn. Trim the wick 4mm before each use. The recommended maximum burn time each time is 3-4 hours. Keep away from children and drafts, and always burn on a level surface.
