Aromatherapy Associates Revive Candle has been my saviour over the past few weeks. It’s citrus based, uplifting and ever so spa-like. It takes around 15 minutes for the scent to infuse the air with a light blend of citrus oils of grapefruit and petitgrain. It’s a great combination which revives the spirit and soul.
The centre piece of my home spa experience – to spa at home requires a warm bath, some bath oil and a fabulous candle. A simple church candle or a cheapie from IKEA will do the trick – and don’t get me wrong, I have a store cupboard full and use them around the house and in the bathroom. But if you want to really do it properly, I suggest you invest in an essential oil based candle from a top notch brand. You might pay more, but the results are a hundred times better.
Aromatherapy Associates Revive Candle really hits the spot. It’s elegant (can you say that about a candle?) so perfectly balanced and doesn’t have any pretence or flowery notes. It’s not synthetic and whilst you are paying for quality, that’s exactly what you get.
I don’t just use it in the bathroom; it gets placed all around the house to infuse the smell everywhere. They are hand-poured in the UK and made from the highest quality soy wax with unbleached cotton wicks. 100% GM free.
With a burn time of 40 hours – it’s less than a quid for each hour. Money well spent in my book. Treat yourself or put it on your Christmas list.
