On these cold evenings it has become my favourite thing to get cosy in my big fluffy blanket, stick on an episode of Friends (thank you, Netflix!) and light a few candles. To me, lighting candles helps me unwind and relax. They create a beautiful calming light and release some amazing scents.
ThYme Candles are made in Sheffield, by Helen Clark, using the finest natural soy wax and fragranced with oils. Soy wax is 100% natural and an environmentally friendly alternative to paraffin wax. They are also vegan friendly!
Soy wax creates a pure, delicately scented candle. The best part about buying from this brand? A donation from every thyme fragrance candle will be made to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. So while you are enjoying a beautifully, handmade candle, the money used to purchase it is going to an amazing cause. So, what’s available?
Currently, four scents are available from Thyme Candles. Honey, Berry, Clove and of course, Thyme. When I picked up each candle from it’s delicate tissue paper wrapping, I could instantly imagine where each candle would work best at home; this is something I don’t usually experience with candles. Normally, I pick up a ‘fresh cotton’ sort of scent and think, perfect! That’ll do! However, with the Thyme candles, the scents can work across the home, which I think is an amazing concept. For example, let’s take the scent ‘Thyme’ – a scent which would compliment any dining room or kitchen. It almost inspires me to get cooking it’s that good.
My personal favourite from the collection is Berry. As a girl with a sweet tooth, I love anything that smells sweet and fruity. I’m actually about a third down already I love it that much – it’s been burning for hours and it’s incredible how long they last.
Sometimes, with the big candle brands, the overwhelming choice can be quite intimidating. I love that ThYme candles have a collection of four staple scents, all of which are unique to each other, meaning there is definitely one for everyone. Even my mum is after these candles! I may have to share them with her…
It’s always a pleasure to work with local brands, it’s one of my favourite things to do. Why don’t you show Thyme Candles some love? The candles are available to buy on Etsy, here. A Fiver each for a handmade product with so much love added into it, you can’t go wrong. These would make a perfect gift, especially with Valentine’s Day coming up!
