Need a great holiday hostess gift, spa companion and fragrant candle for your home during the holidays?
You can have all three with Lavanila’s The Healthy Candle in Vanilla Lavender. The Vanilla Lavender Healthy Candle contains notes of Spanish Lavender, Violet Leaf and warm Madagascar vanilla for a calming fragrance that is never overpowering or unbearable. The candle is 100% natural and burns clean without releasing harmful pollutants, toxins, or soot into the air. It is also free of paraffin, dyes and harsh chemicals and is a beeswax blend that is infused with pure essential oils. I absolutely adore the design on the tin and was really happy when I found out that when the candle burns down you can just clean the inside of the tin and reuse it! Read more
No matter the time of year, I am always a sucker for scented candles. In the summer I do like to go a bit lighter with the scents and try to avoid anything that reminds me too much of baked goods…not the case in fall and winter. So far this summer, my scented candle of choice has been Thymes Lemon Geranium Candle.
The candle is made with high-quality food-grade paraffin and burns for approximately 40 fragrant hours. The light, fresh, lemony/herbal scent is perfect for summer and is never too overpowering, even during the summer months. Another awesome plus is that the candle jar features a very pretty decorative design and really adds that extra something to any space. This candle would also make a great hostess gift as it comes in a cute cloth bag (that I have been using to store my jewelry). Read more
The holidays are officially upon us, which for a lot of us means fun, festive holiday get-togethers, one of my absolute favorite things about the holidays. I definitely look forward to gathering with family, friends and of course co-workers and getting into the holiday spirit. One of the first thoughts that crosses my mind after receiving those much anticipated holiday evites…besides what will I wear of course…is what would be a great hostess gift? I tend to be quite unoriginal in choosing hostess gifts and will frequently rely on the fail safe bottle of wine, chocolates or set of soaps. These have always seemed to go over well but I wouldn’t mind gifting something a bit more unique, something like a beautifully scented candle that is not only eco- friendly, but can also be used as a body moisturizer.
Well thanks to The SOI Company, an amazingly scented, all natural candle, that is also a moisturizer, is exactly what I will be presenting to my party hostesses this holiday season. I think these candles are the greatest things ever. Because the SOI candles are made of 100% all natural soy oil, you will enjoy clean, soot-free burning that is not harmful to you or the environment. The SOI candles soy oil only heats to 106 degrees making them last longer. The melted soy oil from SOI candles can also be used as skin moisturizer and help remedy sunburns, eczema, psoriasis and poison oak.
I have been enjoying the Pumpkin Spice candle in my home for the last week and I am absolutely crazy about it.Â The fragrance is heavenly, very warm and inviting and really puts you in a holiday state of mind. I still get the aroma of pumpkin spice even when the candle is not burning. I also loved it as a body moisturizer. At first I was very hesitant about dipping my fingers in hot soy oil and applying it to my body, but the oil was actually more warm than hot. It felt very soothing and I really enjoyed the fragrance on my skin.
The SOI candles are available in some great holiday scents such as; Pumpkin Spice, Mandarin Cranberry, Holiday Spirit, Spiced Cider and Mistletoe and would make great hostess/holiday gifts. And if you happen to be the hostess, having these burning when your guests walk will definitely create a festive atmosphere…and if your hands happen to get a bit dry from all of the entertaining, just dip them in your jar with the burning candle and enjoy the surprised looks on your guests faces!
