Ahh, winter. I like you only when you’re frosty and white. This grey and rainy look really doesn’t suit you. No, but seriously, why can’t it be snowing? I don’t know about you but I just feel so lethargic and uninspired in this weather.
What I do like about it though is the fact that I can burn candles all day long if I want to and they give the warmest and cosiest feeling ever. If I can also curl up with a good cuppa and favourite book, then I’m the happiest person in the world. What can I say, I’m a simple girl like that.
Candles. I love hoarding candles. However, I always make sure to use at least one of them to the fullest before picking up a new one. What I love about natural candles is that their scent is always gentle and never overpowering or making you sick, like non-natural fragrances in commercial candles do. Today I’m sharing with you my favourite candles that are just perfect for this time of year.
1. Cowshed Knackered Cow Candle. This candle has been my favourite ever since I got it over a year ago. Cowshed candles have to be my favourite in general as their natural wax burns evenly and scents are lovely and very unique. The scent of this one is a blend of ….. essential oils. It’s so relaxing and soothing, like a blanket on a cold winter night.
2. Kiss Air Toasted Marshmallow Candle. I stumbled across this company I think almost 2 years ago on Twitter and I’ve been loving their candles ever since. All of their candles are soy wax based, infused with beautiful scents. This Toasted Marshmallow one is very sweet, but it’s not sickening at all. It fills your home with this delicious scent and makes you feel like it’s already Christmas. Additionally, £1 from the sale of this candle goes to Wood Green, the Animal Charity. How fantastic is that?
They also have a selection of Christmas scented candles so I might get one of them soon as well.
3. Kiss Air Cinnamon Candle. Another one from Kiss Air Candles because they have such wonderful scents. This one just screams winter and Christmas! It’s just a pure Cinnamon smell, so a sweet one as well, but at the same time very warming and relaxing one. I’m almost out of my second large tin so will definitely place an order soon for this one.
4. Shearer Candles Spice Candle. Shearer Candles is a very old candle company based in Scotland with a huge selection of candles. Unfortunately, not all of their candles are made with natural wax, but the one I picked is 100% natural wax. It smells incredible! It’s a very unique fragrance that is a mix of spices, along with some patchouli and cedar. I always find myself smelling it throughout the day even when it’s not being burnt. I also love how elegant it looks with a silver lid it comes with. It would make a perfect Christmas gift!
After all this writing about my favourite candles I guess I will go and light one of them now.
What are your favourite natural wax candles? I would love to try some new candles, so let me know in the comments!
