I love the smell of a real Christmas tree, but this year we decided change and go for a re-usable artificial one. Going against tradition further, the Fifi Friendly family got out the starting block early this year and put up most of our Christmas decorations last night. To our puppy’s delight, there is now a Christmas tree laden with funny looking baubles on it, a singing Santa hat, reindeer/Santa/fairy lights and various tacky Christmas delights that I have “collected” over the years. Great excitement.
One thing I can’t stand at this time of year though is the smell of Christmas candles and room sprays. For me there is nothing worse. Last night, with our living room looking all festive and sparkly there was something missing… a scent and I decided to add some fragrance in the air with my Sweet Orange, Geranium & Chamomile Luxury Natural Candle by Natural Empathy.
Currently half price at £12.50 this beautifully packaged candle is a perfect gift for Christmas or at anytime of the year (Spoiler alert to some of my friends and family…. guess what you are getting!). Candles are something that people rarely buy themselves but they are such a lovely addition to the home.
This luxury candles came securely wrapped up with extra packing inside to make sure it arrived safely. Pretty much before I had opened the box, I was getting the smell of rose geranium, sweet orange and chamonile oils wafting out. This 100% natural wax candle is described as being like an English garden and I would agree, but I also found it to be quite a warm and light scent. Unlike many candles, there is a high percentage of fragrance in this one and I found that even just having the unlit candle in the room made an impact.
I found that this candle burned evenly from the get go and did not have any soot or black smoke coming out of it. Not only is the wax made from natural soy, the wick is lead free and made from natural fibres. As a result this candle emits no toxins and carcinogens. All that is emitted is a fab aroma really that lingers in the room nicely. With 60 hours of burn time I am looking forward to my house smelling great over the festive period.
Natural Empathy also do a Wild Fig & Patchouli candle which is great for relaxation. I suspect I will need one of these this month too!! If you are looking for a candle that is UK made, vegetarian & vegan friendly, against animal testing, made with 100% wax, smells stunning and above all else is Fifi Friendly you have to try one of these.
