Just over a year ago I reviewed the Warming Balm from Niki’s Organic Balms you can see my review here. Niki has expanded her range to include hand made one hundred percent soy candles. Three fragrances are available, original (tea tree and lemon) warming (orange, black pepper rosemary, and cinnamon) and Rose and Lavender, which I have been enjoying the for the past few weeks. The packaging is beautiful – the box has a beautiful graphic print but does not really smell of rose and lavender. That is because the candle is in a jar which has a lid which means that the fragrance is kept within the jar.
Once you open the lid you get a gentle wave of the fragrance and when you light the the candle the fragrance intensifies but is never overwhelming. The fragrance is very well balanced so it is not tooo rosey or tooo lavendery and the addition of geranium to the blend keeps it ‘floral without being heady ‘. Keep the wick low to encourage an even burn and because the jar has a lid it can be reused for a variety of storage uses. It is a lovely candle from a very lovely brand.
