Lemon Myrtle, Lavender & Rose Geranium* (£28) | available online
If you know anything about me it will be that I love a good scented candle. I probably have roughly eight different candles on the go at the moment, all dotted around my house and just waiting to be lit the next time I enter the room. I have my favourites of course, Jo Malone, Neom and Diptique to name but a few but I do love discovering new brands of scented candles and my latest addition comes from a lesser known name, 100 Acres Apothecary, which is a little beauty company based in the beautiful Cotswolds countryside. They are passionate about creating entirely natural, organic and gorgeous smelling products for the home, your body and your bathroom.
I love the ethos and feel of this brand, not to mention how incredible all their products smell. They use hand-blended essential oils and botanicals to give each product a scent of the English countryside as well as helping give you a sense of wellbeing by choosing certain ingredients to maximise mood and feeling. There is a real mix of products available from haircare, moisturisers, hand washes and bath salts but my favourite from the range is, of course, their signature scented candle. The look, feel and scent of this candle feels incredibly luxurious and the blend of lemon myrtle, lavender and rose geranium is just perfect to calm and relax your mood whilst transporting you outside to a verdant field during the English summer. It feels fresh, floral and utterly addictive. The vessel is rather beautiful too and will make the perfect makeup brush holder once the candle is finished…which won’t be long at this rate considering how often I am burning it!
Have you tried anything from 100 Acres Apothecary? Do you like the sound of this candle?
