I love The Body Shop – it’s one of those shops I remember vividly from my childhood we had a quite big one that we would often visit and I would love looking through the little baskets full of one use items such as shower gels alongside flannels and hairbrushes. When we moved we didn’t have one as close for a couple of years until a small one opened in the town centre and by then it was makeup that I was more interested in. I have often brought fragrance oils from The Body Shop but I don’t ever remember having tried a Body Shop candle until I was sent this one.
The Body Shop – Jasmine and White Frangipani Scented Candle.
Made from Fair Trade Soya and containing essential oils, this candle is paraffin free and uses an unbleached cotton wick giving off a gorgeous floral scent that can be smelt around the room at all time.
I have to admit I never manage to burn candles without them tunnelling, I just haven’t got the knack of leaving it to clear over on the first use before blowing it out, I always seem to forget and by the time I check it’s always burnt for just a little too long. I will one day manage though, this candle didn’t tunnel any more than a normal candle for me – so I shall say in the right hands it would burn evenly.
The floral scent is fantastic, as I said before you don’t have to have this lit to smell this around the room and once lit you are in for a whole different experience as the scent and gentle glowing light offers a wonderful ambience to the room. I can’t find an approximate burning time on these candles but I’m guessing I will get around 15 hours from it.
If you are yet to try a Body Shop candle you really must get your hands on one, available instore and online they cost £10 each (you can grab this one on this link).
