A quick run down of what I’m loving this month
Neom Moroccan Blush Rose Lime & Black Pepper Candle
This has been going almost three months now and I light it virtually every day for an hour or so when I have my quiet time. I’m in love with rose and this candle now smells like home to me as I’m burning it so often. The only downside is that even though I use extra long matches, I am still struggling to light it without burning my fingers as it reaches the bottom of the glass. You can probably see the black marks on the glass where I have dropped the burning match! I think next time I will go for a smaller candle.
Neal’s Yard Seaweed and Arnica Bath Foam
This smells almost medicinal (a good thing) and I’ve been using it after my long walks and yoga sessions to relax my muscles. I’m a fan of anything Neal’s Yard really, but this one is new to me. I’ll definitely buy it again.
Scottish Fine Soaps Tangled Rose Hand Cream
There we go again with that rose theme! This is designed, made and packaged all in Scotland by a family business in Stirlingshire. It doesn’t contain a massive hit of rose, but still smells fab.
Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Oil
This beautiful exotic oil is solid at room temperature so I run it under the hot tap while I’m in the bath to liquefy it before slathering it on afterwards. Expensive, but oh so worth it!
Sabai Soaps Lemongrass Bar
I’m no big fan of lemongrass if I’m honest, but I was gifted this soap to try and it really is rather soothing on the skin, unlike many soaps which can be drying. I took it on holiday and really enjoyed using it. The lemongrass scent is 100% natural so not overwhelming. I’ll pack it again for my next trip. It came beautifully packaged too – so would make a good stocking filler.
I’m planning to try out some different candles soon, so if anyone has a recommendation for a good quality candle containing essential oils with an even burn and natural soy, please shout up!
