Essential Oil Candles in Tins
I found these candles at a trade show I went to last year and it's not often I get stopped in my tracks, but these just did it for me. They're attractively packaged, contain nice, clean burning soy wax and just have such a beautiful set of blends of essential oils in them that I had to stock them. So here they are. They won't replace the diddy essential oil candles we've stocked for ages, those are a cute little impulse buy and priced so that you don't mind buying yourself a present. These Purbeck candles are more of a Gift For Other People type, or as a spluge thing for yourself, they're smart and substantial enough to be given on their own or as part of a hamper.
One of the reasons I like this range so much I guess is that the lovely lady who owns Purbeck and I seem to have similar taste in blends - we both like a blend of florals with citrusses, we're both a bit partial to patchouli and geranium. She has similar ethics (only using soy wax and essential oils) and hand makes her products in Dorset, not a million miles from us, so it seems a good fit. I hope you love them as much as I do.
Lazy Sunday Afternoon - A very relaxing blend of oakmoss, gereanium, patchouli, rosemary, sandalwood and sweet orange. That all sounds like a lot to take in but to my mind it's the perfect "background nice smell" blend (my personal favourite) - no one of those scents dominates and together they just leave a light, pleasant scent that's very easy to live with.
Pure Indulgence - A fresh, mouthwatering mix of ylang ylang, geranium, bergamot, cedarwood, sweet orange in this one make it another very liveable with smell. With all those different scents combining so well, there's nothing that dominates here, it's all about balance and peace, this is another one that goes quickly in the shop, it's got a very broad appeal.
Secret Garden - This one is new to us, a bright, high floral scent with a citrussy edge, it's made up of lavender, bergamot and cedarwood. A new firm favourite, we've all taken one of these home already!
Hygge - Another sophisticated blend, this one is of geranium, patchouli, lavender, lemon and sweet orange. With all those citruses in there, it's fresh but the geranium and lavender keep thier floral edge with a base of woody patchouli to keep them all grounded, a great candle to burn while you're having a relaxing bath.
Chelsea Flowers - Like opening a window on a Summer's day - this blend of rose geranium, palmarosa, lavender, bergamot and cedarwood is floral, heady and with just a hint of moutwatering citrus.
The Orangery - Well the clue's in the name with this one, it does smell almost edible and puts me in mind of orange sherbert. A simple blend of geranium, lemon and sweet orange that's sure to raise a smile.
Mindfulness - Is a mix of sweet orange, patchouli, sandalwood, frankincense, rosemary and myrrh, making it the sort of thing you'd smell in a spa or one of those terrifyingly expensive yoga studios. It's clever and multilayered, a very sopisticated smell and yet not overpowering.
Oriental Flower - Another new one to us, with a simple mix of geranium, lemongrass and cedarwood this is another scent that's easy to live with, would make a lovely candle for a bedroom, it's more of a romantic sort of scent.
