Soul Candles Shropshire | Votive Scent Selection

Hello, Hi, Bonjour, Hola, Ciao, Ola, Namaste .... 

I hope you have all had an amazing week! Now with the weekend on our doorstep (three days for most of you!) I thought what better time than to kick back, relax and de-stress. I have had the busiest week in a very long time, I am sleep deprived (I am counting on a total of 8 hours sleep during this entire week) and full of emotions. I cannot wait to get myself into bed, and sleep until my body is ready to awaken! It's crazy how a lack of sleep can affect different aspects of your life. Personally, for me - stress is a huge factor. I work long, draining, unsocial-able hours. I am often awake whilst the rest of the world sleeps, and asleep whilst the rest of you are creating memories and living your life. Don't get me wrong, it works for me - but when I have a week like I have this week, I could not think of anything better than running a nice, hot, bubble bath. Lighting a few candles, and just laying there and breathing. It sounds so silly, but there is nothing better than taking time to heal and repair yourself. Usually I would light a bog standard candle, something with a sweet smell and I would not really think much more of the situation. I think there is something soothing about laying in a dark room, whether that's in a bath filled with bubbles and steaming hot water or not - you can decide and having the aroma of a beautiful candle flicking on the side.

Not that long ago I discovered the company Soul Candles on Instagram, and after an intensive internet stalk (yes, I went there) I was contacted by the lovely ladies over at Soul Candles Shropshire, whom offered me a cheeky discount code. I could not say no *palms over face* I found it extremely hard to decide what scent I wanted to try, and to my surprise they had already had that thought and catered to the struggle by doing a gift-sets. I treated myself to The Votive Scent Selection, and my god I am so glad that I did!

The Votive Scent Selection.

"This perfect set gives you a selection of our three flagship scents, Relax, Nero and Uplift. A lovely gift for someone special or great for a first time customer who doesn't quite know which scent is right for them.⁠⁠⁠⁠"

The Votive Scent Selection contains three mini-sized candles.

Relax - features notes of Geranium, Sweet Orange, Lavender and Ylang Ylang. It's quoted to help you relax.

Nero - features notes of Ho Wood Oil, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot and Clary Sage. This is their newest addition to the Soul Candle family!

Uplift - features notes of Neroli, Sweet Orange, Lavender and Rosemary. It's quoted to lift the soul and enhance your mood. On their website they say that this particular candle is popular for individuals whom lead a busy lifestyle. 

Personally I cannot pick a favourite. They all smell absolutely amazing!! The first thing I noticed when I opened the package was the incredible scents escaping the packaging. I was overwhelmed with such beautiful scents. I have never had such strong scents from packaging before, and this just increased my excitement to try them!  

This Selection is just the smallest of their creations! They cater for everyone and all your needs. Soul Candles also create Reed Diffusers at 100ml of all their collections. Candles at 30cl, The Nero Votive Set and Large 3 Wick Candles. 

The only reason I purchased this collection was because I was unsure on how I would feel about each individual candle. I am so wary when it comes to ordering anything scent wise via the internet. I am such a "touchy, feeling, smelly" person whilst shopping. I love to feel the product, smell it and have it physically in-front of me. Although I have probably done myself no favours because I just want each of these in their larger forms - on the other hand I am so glad they offer gift-packages like the Votive Scent Selection because if you are like me, you get the try a little bit of each before picking a favoruite or deciding what candle you want to purchase in a large form. This is also a fantastic idea for gifts. Did I mention that they also come gift-wrapped for FREE?! Incredible. 

My entire experience from stalking their Instagram account, chatting to the ladies, browsing their website, picking my items, purchasing, delivery, packaging and use of the products has been amazing. I could not fault them at all. 

I have attached their Instagram feed below, and all their social links. If, like me you love shopping and all things candles then make sure you head over and show them some love! and I promise you, if you do make a purchase you will not be disappointed! 

I hope you all have a lovely bank holiday weekend.
