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 thing and they're smart enough 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 - This one I struggle to keep in stock, the blend of oakmoss, geranium, patchouli, rosemary, sandalwood and sweet orange is just so different, it's got a hint of cologne and herbs from the oakmoss and rosemary, but it's lifted by the sandalwood and orange in a bright, fresh way. I'll be honest, it's my favourite from this range and my addiction to having this candle at home at all times might be at the heart of the stock problem.
Relaxing - Another firm favourite in the shop, this blend of may chang, ylang ylang and lavender is just inspired. May Chang (the aromatherapist's Prozac) has citrussy notes that blend beautifully with florals to make this the perfect candle for that bathtime treat, breathe in and float away!
Pure Indulgence - A fresh, mouthwatering mix of ylang ylang, geranium, bergamot, cedarwood, sweet orange in this one make it a 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.
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.
Spa Days - A fresh and light blend of geranium, patchouli, lavender, lemon and sweet orange, I love this mix of high florals and citrusses, it's a soft, fresh smell that's sophisticated and clean, just like a spa should be.
Hygge - Quite a sophisticated blend of cedar, oakmoss, patchouli and geranium, this is a cozy blend for a rainy afternoon on your own with a blanket and a book. They always go quickly in the shop, I think it's the oakmoss scent that so appealing and different about this candle.
Heavenly Citrus - A stunning fresh citrus scent created with pure essential oils including sweet orange, bergamot and grapefuit - perfect for bringing a hint of spring/summer indoors....
Sea Breeze - A mix of lavender, bergamot, rosemary, eucalyptus and cedar - the first note I take off this is citrussy, but underneath that it's just ffresh clean air smells, which is why it's called Sea Breeze I guess, this isn't an ozonic sort of fragrance, it's just clean and clear, a very livable with scent, not dominating at all.
Christmas in Tin - All the traditional favourites of cinnamon, clove and sweet orange make this exactly what it says, Christmas in a Tin. It's home baking and comfort and if it could, it would sing you Carols, I'm sure.
