If you've been a regular reader of my blog you'll know I love candles, some say you can never have enough handbags but I think in this instance you can never have enough candles. I have a candle in every room downstairs and upstairs apart from the children's rooms. I've been burning a candle from The Spitalfields Candle Company- Grapefruit, Bergamot & Lime in my front room recently. The packaging is beautiful and very chic, I love the simplicity of the brands logo featured on the front of the glass votive. This particular candle stands out and catches my eye amongst my other candles purely because of the design and packaging.
The scent is amazing, I couldn't believe how fragrant the scent was and it soon filled my front room with a very uplifting happy aroma. The candles are made from 100% natural soy wax. The larger votive candles (200g) have a generous burn time of 50 hrs whilst the smaller 65g votives still have a burn time of 12 hrs. The larger candles retail £25 and the smaller votive candles retail £8.99. I know these are more expensive than your shop bought candles but they're 100 times better. I always say it pays to invest in good quality candles. I wouldn't waste my money on cheap candles which don't keep their scent.
Grapefruit, Bergamot & Lime
Grapefruit’s sweet and inviting fragrance is said to have a positive effect on the emotions, and is widely recognised as a natural anti-depressant.
Bergamot has a refreshingly sweet citrus aroma with warm spicy undertones which invigorate the spirit.
Fruity and refreshing, limes have been a kitchen staple for centuries. Lime oil has a wonderfully uplifting scent.
You can purchase The Spitalfields Candles online www.spitalfieldscandles.co.uk have a look at the other scents and let me know which ones appeal to you!
Just looking at these photos wants me to snuggle up on the sofa with a cuppa tea and my book! There's other fragrances which you can pick from, I like the sound of them all but if I had to pick one I would pick the Lavender & Chamomile. I think the smaller votive candles are great to give as gifts, you can get two for the price of one and try two different scents.
