This candle is the blend that was formerly called Restore and it’s my bestseller. I burn it most evenings and feel so relaxed. Everyone who smells it at my markets loves it and I get lots of wows and oohs! It’s hard to get across through a website just how great this candle smells and what a relaxing effect it has. I love that Sophie takes inspiration for her scents from nature and memories of time spent outside and how that makes her feel. And I really love her ethos of using only the most natural organic ingredients too and putting the environment first. She uses UK grown rapeseed wax that she blends herself, locally sourced organic essential oils and natural wood or organic hemp wicks to ensure that her candles are the most eco-friendly they can be. Each candle is topped with homegrown and wild sourced botanicals and features a natural hemp wick. As she uses the purest essential oils, these candles make your room smell so good when they burn too.
The Stillness blend was created to soothe your mind and body and is a great candle to burn before bedtime or during a yoga/meditation session. Sophie describes it as “the feeling of a late spring evening with deep hues of purple and blue, the soothing sound of birdsong and the watery light of the moon”. It has all my favourite essential oils in it including:
– Lavender to soothe and calm
– Clove to invite in joy and warmth
– Vetiver to reduce stress and help you relax
To get the most from your candle, allow it to burn for a couple of hours when first lit so that the botanicals are engulfed in the wax and do not burn. To achieve the longest burn time, when you first light your candle allow the wax to melt from rim to rim. Thereafter don’t burn for more than 3 hours at a time. Keep the wick trimmed to roughly 1 cm above wax, and try to keep it straight, upright and centred to the jar. Don’t let the wax to burn to the very bottom of the jar as the botanicals will catch.
Size: 120ml, burn time: 35+ hours
