I have always loved candles, what girl doesn't?! For me, they're reminiscent of romantic dinners for two, alfresco dining with friends, relaxing in a candlelit bath with a glass of wine - sigh! Candles always create a beautiful atmosphere, and let's not forget that candlelight is super flattering!
If you love candles as much as I do, you'll want to be introduced to Rose in Thorns, an online boutique specialising in gorgeous scented soy candles and recycled wax candles.
The range of soy glass votive candles come in a range of divine scents and colours. Each candle is hand poured and made with premium quality, 100% vegetable soy wax. All natural and chemical free, once finished you can return the empty glass to Rose in Thorns for recycling. Return four candles and receive one free.
The creamy texture of soy wax is now also available as a floating candle. Float them in a dish or teacup, or even en masse in an outdoor pool for an amazing effect.
The perfect gift, I love these teacup candles. A selection of teacups with various scented candles, when finished you can either use the teacup, have it re-filled, or pop in a floating candle or tealight candle.
Fill your home with a delicious scent by melting these soy melts in an oil burner. Unlike using oils, you don't need to worry about the water running dry. Once the scent has all evaporated, return the wax to Rose in Thorns for recycling and receive a 10% discount on your next purchase.
Another brilliant recycled product, these candles are created when old candle stubs are melted down, purified, and transformed into gorgeous new candles.
A range of glass candles including citronella candles will be essential for your summer entertaining.
