Drawing the curtains, lighting a candle and reading a book, is the perfect way for me to unwind and relax. But not any old candle will do. I only look in the direction of candles made from soy or beeswax, which gives a clean burn with a beautifully smelling scent.
The reason why I steer clear of candles made from paraffin wax, is because it pollutes the air by releasing chemicals when burning, which can affect your health and skin. And lets be honest who wants that?
Recently I came across candles from Holistic London, their candles are made with organic essential oils and renewable, eco-friendly soy wax. The new Meadow scented candle caught my eye.
It’s smells like a beautiful countryside field on a summer’s day, bringing in calm and serenity throughout the home. The packaging isn’t fussy and I like the minimal stylish look of the glass jar, its also recyclable, which is a big tick for me.
If you’re looking for a stylish and contemporary soy candle, head on over to the Holistic Health website, they recently launched the Outdoor range, which Meadow is a part of. You can also find bath salts and linen mists, to bring even more calm and serenity into your home.
