Last winter I bought my first Yankee Candles, and now I am hooked! I've always loved candles before but could never find money friendly ones. Although Yankee Candles are not particularly budget friendly, it is certainly not making a massive dent in my piggy bank either.
Here are my Yankee Candle collection. I did have Cinnamon Stick but The Boy stole it from me ¬_¬ My favourite out of the three is Pink Lady Slipper.
Some tips I have learnt about candles
- Always trim you candle wick to around 0.5cm
- You can buy fancy candle wick trimmers OR just use nail clippers (that's what I do)
- Don't blow out your candles! The smoke masks the smell it has been giving off, instead use a smoke snuffer OR what I like to do is use the end of a used match stick and push it into the wax. This also makes it easier to relight next time.
I've also used a few other branded candles. A slightly more pricier one that I would highly recommend is Max Benjamin candles - it's an Irish brand and uses Soy Bean Wax, so it doesn't contain parabens. I was introduced to this product as the wife/mother ( I can't what she said oops!) of one of the founders gifted it to my mother and I each Christmas :) You can find Max Benjamin candles at Selfridges and John Lewis or you can just buy from their website.
What are your favourite candles?
