What is more festive than setting fire to a small piece of string and filling a room with various incredible smells? Candles create not only a luxuriously romantic ambience but there is even scientific research that confirms that this form of aromatherapy can help with our mental health! For example; Christmas Spice and Cinnamon scents have been shown to help relieve exhaustion and fatigue as they are full of calming aromatic qualities (as well as smelling like Christmas happiness in a jar!). So we thought we’d share a few of our absolute favourites this year with you all , so chuck on Love Actually with a hot choc and light up one of these sensuous nightlights – consider it our Christmas gift to you all!
The Brown Paper Candle Co. – Pumpkin Spice Latte – £10.00
So, our absolute winner of this year’s Christmas Candle search has to be these incredible (and so fricken’ affordable) homemade candles. All crafted in a tiny kitchen from natural, organic wax, pure cotton low-smoke wicks and paraben-free fragrance oils – and presented in gorgeous little jam jars – we LOVE this artisan gem. With a large variety of scents including PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE (to fulfil all your basic bitch requirements) – I have truly fallen in love with the story and the smell of these incredible candles. BEST BUY!!

Nirvana Spa – Peach Schnapps – £17.00
Nirvana Spa is an incredible spa hidden away in Wokingham, near Reading and if you
haven’t been – your inner snob is screaming for it. With a hot tub the size of a large swimming pool and heated ceramic beds for your napping pleasure – heaven is recreated here. If that wasn’t good enough, the entire spa is laced with the scents of their very own candles, which are available to buy so you can bring your own little piece of heaven home with you! Our absolute favourite of their selection has got to be the Peach Schnapps scent which is both warming and sweet – available as both a candle and a reed diffuser – it’s bloody delicious. The only negative here is these aren’t currently available to order online – so you’ll just HAVE to take a trip to the spa and while you’re there… it’d be rude not to slip on a dressing gown and try the facilities.
Yankee Candle – Christmas Memories – £18.00
Yankee of course, have to have a cheeky mention being the candle funding gods for our
flickering cravings and Christmas Memories has got to be our absolute festive favourite. With a combination of Gingerbread baking and Warming Citrus tones – it will literally fulfil your Christmas Candle Craving.
The White Company – Winter Signature – £20.00
A sassy, spicy combination of cinnamon and clove, this candle is simply sensational. The presentation glasses are adorable and they last for ages – a beautiful Christmas gift…. for me.
Jo Malone – Incense and Embers – £42.00
Granted, these come at a much heftier price tag – but if science tells us they can help our mental health… its medicine in my eyes. My mother always told me to not neglect my health so… I fully justify this purchase. It’s deep and smoky with spicy tones throughout and looks so bloody adorable – we love
