If you want to make your house smell beautifully fragranced may I suggest aromatherapy candles and wax shavings from With Love, Jane. They are natural soy candles made with 100% pure essential oils, poured by hand.
Jane Campbell, the lady behind the business, sent me a Refreshing Essential Oils of Orange, Lavender & Geranium 200g aromatherapy candle tin and a 100g pot of aromatherapy wax shavings.
Here is the website description of the aromatherapy candle:-
REFRESHING – Orange, Lavender & Geranium
Orange is sweet and fruity and helps to disperse gloomy thoughts and promotes a positive outlook. Lavender is calming and creates a sense of rationality. Mixed with the balancing Geranium, this candle is a must have anywhere in the house
I really love this candle! Personally I think the stated aromatherapy properties of this are quite right…it does make you feel refreshed and positive. It is quite a strong fragrance but not too over-powering. The fragrance goes throughout the house and really makes my home feel ‘homely’. The fragrance of these particular blended essential oils reminds me of a beauty salon, relaxing and luxurious.
The silver metal candle tin is decorated with pretty decorated paper, on the bottom there is a label with burning instructions & a warning notice and on the top there is the ‘With Love, Jane’ candle label stating which fragrance the candle is. In this case, Orange, Lavender & Geranium.
It is a very heady fragrance that envelops you with the sweet smell of geranium and orange. If I’m honest I would not have assumed there was lavender in this…. if you smell it very carefully you can notice notes of it but it wouldn’t be the first fragrance I suggested if asked to guess which oils were in the candle. Personally I love the fragrance of lavender but my sister can’t stand it…so to me the non-intrusive lavender fragrance is a good thing as it means that those of you that are not keen on the lavender scent might enjoy this aromatherapy candle fragrance if you decide to give it a go. 🙂
The candle tins are £12.50 for a 200g tin and £6.25 for a 100g tin. They are definitely worth the money as the quality of the essential oils used is very apparent. These soy aromatherapy candles would make ideal gifts because not only are they are affordable but they look so pretty because of the decorated paper around the sides of the tin.

The pot of wax shavings I was sent was Relaxing Essential Oils of Jasmine, Lavender & Lemon. I used it in a oil / wax burner that I already had at home. I just had to pop a bit of the wax shavings into the bowl part of the burner and then put a lit tealight candle underneath so it would gradually melt the wax so the relaxing fragrance of the aromatherapy oils could be released. The wax melted really quickly and the scent filled the whole room. I so wish you could smell how lovely this fragrance is…it is lemony, fresh and makes you want to smile!
The wax shavings are available in mostly the same aromatherapy blends as the candles. A little goes a long way and these wax shavings will last you a long time and scent your home for ages! A 100g pot is an absolute steal at £3.00!!!!! And the large 200g pot is just £6.00. If I was you I would go for a selection of small 100g pots so you can try out various different scents and the pick your favourite.
