I don’t know when my obession with candles first started but now I am seriously hooked. I love candles so much! I love how they can make the house smell so lovely and fresh, like you’ve just cleaned or you’re baking. They can make any room feel homey and more comfortable, put you at ease constantly and give you that big feeling of relief that you’re home now, in your lovely smelling home. I usually tend to buy Yankee Candles or Woodwick, the amount of Yankee’s I have gone through is quite ridiculous to be honest. I currently have a ‘Christmas Memories’ one burning which smells amazing, it’s definitely making me feel festive.
I have recently tried the Juniper Berry and Cedarwood candle from Aequill and I instantly fell in love. I love the packaging and it’s kind of retro and basic but it’s pulled off just fine. The candle is in a cute little glass jar and it just looks so nice and fancy on my table! I love the scent of Juniper Berry and Cedarwood but it’s really difficult to describe, it’s a pleasant smell and reminds me of like a wood lavender scent. It’s deep but fresh at the same time. These are aromatherapy candles meant to relax and calm you. It kind of smells like a fresh winter morning, like we’re having all the time now!
The glass is actually 100% recycled which is pretty cool and a travel candle can last up to 16 hours, whilst a regular one can last up to 40 hours. These would be great as a Christmas present for a loved one! Plus they’re not too expensive at £14.60 and £24. As they’re recycled you can buy refills instead of a whole new glass. I really love this concept, and I haven’t heard of it before.
