This lovely natural candle smells like Christmas in a jar to me, it’s warming and comforting. It has been created based on traditional Midwinter scents to bring comfort and joy throughout the solstice and this, the darkest time of year. As Sophie says “As our outer world has darkened, our inner world continues to expand and our roots grow deep into the earth. From now on, the days will lengthen and we will be able to bring our inner wisdom out of the darkness and into the increasing light.”
It is a time of year when you can often feel under pressure, and suffer from overwhelm or stress. This aromatherapy blend offers emotional support to uplift your senses, boost your energy and your mood. It is made with pure essential oils including clementine, clove, cinnamon and pine.
I love Sophie’s 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 organic hemp wicks to ensure that her candles are the most eco-friendly they can be. As she uses the purest essential oils, these candles make your room smell so good when they burn too. These candles come in a 120ml recyclable clear glass jar, with recycled paper labels printed with vegan ink.
Size: 120ml, burn time: 30+ hours
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.
