Since they first arrived on the scene as OPTIAT, I have been a huge fan of the brand that now calls it’s UpCircle - a more fitting name? Personally I’m still on the fence but the products are still just as fabulous and that’s all that matters. 
New to my collection, which I purchased from Persephone Beauty, are the UpCircle Soy Candles with Coffee Grounds. The description was what caught my attention and I really wanted to try them, it’s Autumn and I love candles.

If you are familiar with the story behind Upcircle, then you will be aware that they are known for their repurposing of ingredients, namely coffee grounds. If you are not so familiar with them, then they have an amazing story to tell.  Aside from an incredible beauty range which features cleansers, scrubs, creams, serums, toners and masks there is also an incredible accessories range which I intend to work my way through.
Top up your self-care routine by creating an indulgent ambience, or simply use these low-waste candles to diffuse a luxurious scent throughout your home. Chai Spices is a must-have for cinnamon lovers and those who enjoy a little hygge.
When it comes to candles, UpCircle have taken their use of repurposed ingredients to a whole new level and not one I would have ever thought of, but am glad that they did. 
Creating hand-poured, cruelty-free soy candles, which are plastic free and made with 100% natural ingredients they look incredible and smell even better.  Infused with repurposed coffee grounds, these candles smell absolutely stunning, the scent you get when you walk into a coffee shop who have just finished serving or roasting coffee beans. Once alight, that scent comes to life and quickly fills the room with the most wonderful aroma.

Top Tips For Candle Burning

  • Burn on a heat resistant, flat surface  
  • Keep away from drafts and flammable items
  • Never leave a candle burning continuously for more than 4 hours
  • To prevent tunnelling, the first time you light your candle allow the wax to melt fully across the top so that it reaches the edges of the jar and the whole surface is liquid.

These candles are 120ml in size and have a burn time of approximately 20-25 hours. They are priced at £11.99 and if coffee isn't a scent you enjoy, there is also the option to choose Chai Spices which is described as being infused with repurposed chai tea spices.
