Autumn is just around the corner meaning the dark nights are slowly creeping in. It also means both Halloween and Christmas are not too far away. All these things are a reason for candles as well as them also making lovely presents and gifts for any time of the year.
Sentelle are sellers of fine Soy Candles. If like me you are not sure what a Soy candle is then here is a brief explanation from Sentelle website.
Soy candles are clean burning, so by choosing them you can say goodbye to the black stains you get on walls and furniture when you burn candles made from paraffin wax and hello to clean air.
Unlike paraffin based wax candles where most scents are lost after an hour, soy candles have a wonderful “scent throw” which means the fragrance fills your room with a strong and lasting scent.
Did you know that a scented soy candle lasts 50% longer than one with a petroleum base, as paraffin burns much faster? So, by opting for soy, you can enjoy the sensual pleasures of candlelight and fragrance for so much longer.
If you love the environment as well as candles, then soy can combine two of your passions. Soy candles are made from hydrogenated soybean oil, extracted from soya beans. This is a natural, renewable and biodegradable source; making soy wax candles the eco-friendly choice.
Soy candles also seem much safer as they burn at a lower temperature than paraffin wax. The soy wax is also water soluble which means any soy spillage can be simply wiped up.
The Soy candles come in many colours and fragrances and designs. They also come unscented too. The fragrances contain some unusual blends fruity, florals, leafy greens and many more. The candles also come either in a choice of decorative jar or as a stand alone chunky pillar candle.
Candles can be used for lots of occasions or moods. These include *A relaxing soak, Chilling out in the evening, dinner parties, bedroom romance, working environment ,wedding reception, birthdays, making a house smell good and of course the obvious one being if and when your power fails or you have to reset the trip switch in the dark.
Sentelles product of the month happens to be the Creamy Vanilla Olympus jar soy candle this is also the product which I have been sent over to try for myself.
I chose Vanilla as it’s one if my favourite fragrances and scents. I love the smell of vanilla essence and anytime I smell vanilla it reminds me if sweets, cake and baking.
The candle is in a glass Olympus jar and weighs 8oz. A lovely creamy colour with the fragrance of ripe vanilla bean.
It has a total burning time of 72 hours but obviously I’m not going to leave it lit for 3 days non stop.
The scent is consistent all the way through the burning process. Unlike other candles which eventually lose the fragrance and turn into a horrible waxy smell. This one is very pleasant and gives a lovely sweet smell to my home.
It costs £12.80 and what a lovely gift this would make.
