The Rosemary and Lavender Candle: A perfect companion for dark, grey days. January 03, 2019 20:32
It's January. Days are short. Outside, the sky is that murky, mizzly kind - uninviting, grey and overcast. While we've been working away for months on our new range of outdoor candles with Spring / Summer in mind, today, I've got to say, I've absolutely loved lighting one indoors.
My candle of choice for today was 'Rosemary and Lavender' - a perfect scent to clarify my thoughts; still foggy from too much cheese, wine and mince pies woofed down over the Christmas hols.
The candle isn't a straight 50 / 50 split of Rosemary and Lavender. We've carefully worked on the ratio and mix to get it just right; deliberately weighting it in favour of Rosemary, which gives the candle a rich, clarifying aroma. Before Christmas, we enlisted the help of some wonderful strangers, via the power of Facebook & Twitter, to help review and test our candles. It's been a daunting time, waiting for their responses. But the feedback has started to come in, and with my own candle lit, I spent an hour or so this morning going through the feedback and reading their comments.
As I was busy enjoying the sniffs and whiffs from my own candle, it was great to read this description of the scent from one of our reviewers:
"The pine aroma of the rosemary means that the lavender is not too dominant - a lovely ‘clean’ fragrance with no cloying notes"
Hurray! Lovely stuff. It's just how we want our candles to be enjoyed. For both the Rosemary and Lavender and Citronella and Clementine Candles, the feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive, fuelling my confidence surrounding this brand new range that we simply love making.
