Aromatherapy Associates Inner Strength Candle

I have recently become a massive fan of Aromatherapy Associates, starting from the time I had my hot stone muscle massage. From the bath and shower oils to their massage oils, I can pretty much tell you it was love at first try. Then the Inner Strength Candle** came into my life and well, wow!

I am a huge candle fan, I've said this a million times on my blog and I will probably keep on saying it, but I find them incredibly relaxing. There is something about watching the flame dancing about once it is alight that makes me feel suddenly relaxed and I like to have a candle alight in whichever of the rooms I am in, whether that is watching TV in the lounge, having a long hot soak or even reading a book in bed, I will always have a candle alight.

Described as follows:

"Evoke a sense of calm and inner peace to your surroundings with the fortifying combination of frankincense and cardamom to inspire. Elegantly designed and beautifully embellished, this candle will create an atmosphere to uplift the senses in any room. Our candles are hand-poured in the United Kingdom and made from the highest quality soy wax with unbleached cotton wicks. 100% GM free".

So being created to evoke a sense of calm and inner peace to your surrounding, the ingredients used are frankincense and cardamom. Frankincense is said to soothe and calm the mind, slows down and deepens breathing and is excellent for use when meditating. It also helps to calm anxiety and obsessive states linked to the past.  Cardamom leaves you feeling refreshed, invigorated and is known for its uplifting and refreshing properties.

As soon as you open the lovely bright purple coloured box, the scent immediately comes to life, it is one of those you breathe in deeply as soon as you get sense of it.  As soon as the candle is alight, that very same fragrance instantly surrounds you, almost enveloping you within and you get a sudden sense of calm and as it drifts throughout you home, the scent is simply wonderful and even when the flame has been extinguished, the scent lingers for a good few hours afterwards.

If you haven't used on of these candles before, they are all poured by hand with soy wax and the wicks are unbleached cotton. The burn time is a rather impressive 40 hours and as you can see it is presented in an elegantly designed and embellished frosted glass jar.

If you are looking for a candle which can transport you from a stressful day, week or are simply in need of some relaxation time, I cannot recommend this candle highly enough, it does everything it states it will do and more and is totally and utterly heavenly.

You can purchase this Aromatherapy Associates Inner Strength Candle for £35 and there are four others within the range which include - Relax, Revive and Indulge and every one of them sounds as appealing and amazing as this one.

  14. I have a load of AA candles, not this one yet but I do have the Bath & Shower oil which is great. I think my favourite candle is the old 'Indulgence' one but I think they have now re-named them along with the new packaging.x
