One of my favourite candle suppliers, Rose in Thorns, asked if I'd like to try their latest product, a soy glass candle. Because I'm of the opinion that you can never have too many beautiful scented candles, I was only too happy to oblige!
Made from natural soy wax, each candle is hand poured, topped with a wooden lid and tied with a soft, natural ribbon. You can rest easy knowing that soy wax is a natural chemical-free, biodegradable and renewable resource. And, when you've finished your candle, you can return the glass to Rose in Thorns to refill. Return four empty soy glass tumblers and receive one free.
The candle comes in two different sizes and a range of delectable fragrances - rose, frangipani, vanilla, mandarin & mimosa, jasmine & honeysuckle, pineapple & coconut, white tea, carnation, passion, sweet lemongrass, and red raspberry. I chose pineapple & coconut, and it is, quite simply, summer in a glass! I had it burning over the weekend and it filled the house with the most delicious summery scent.
One very important tip I'd like to share... the first time you burn a candle sets the stage for the life of that candle. If you burn the candle for a short time and only have a small wax pool, the dry hard wax around the outside will almost never burn - you'll get what is called "candle tunnelling". You want the wax to melt all the way to the edge, which usually means burning your candle for at least 3 hours. I highly recommend trying these gorgeous soy glass candles, and (as we get closer and closer to the festive season) they'd make great gifts for family, friends, or your kids' teachers.
