Candles are becoming an addiction………I love the sweet citrus smells that leave your room fresh and inviting. Candles are homely, warming and sensual. They remind me of childhood, when lighting a candle was an adult task, they seemed and still do seem so comforting and exciting.
My latest favourites are the natural wax, essential oil, wood wick ones. Knowing that no toxins are coming off them make them that bit more enjoyable. Lemongrass and geranium, refreshing and reassuring. Beespoke Of Devon candles are my new go-to candle.
One candle light can fill a room with a loving glow. The perfect comforter whatever the season, wherever you go. I’ve already got my Yankee Christmas candles stocked up. Fighting the urge not to light all of my candles (even the Christmas ones) is tough to do. Even a simple tea light in my ceramic tea light house does the trick!
Bath time is the perfect candles time. I always make sure I have at least two large candles and the rest small, after all I need to be able to see! Not only does the water smell divine with all sorts of Lush products but the air is fragrant with a mixture of candle scents. This makes for the ultimate relaxing experience.
Don’t leave candles dusting on the shelf, brush them off, treat yourself. Indulge in the small and simple luxury of fire. Sometimes the simple things really are the best.
