Bright spark

I've mentioned before that I'm uncomfortable using paraffin candles. Wasn't expecting to find a viable natural alternative in the toilet spray aisle of Woolworths.

I picked up two candles yesterday and found that the ugly labelling on the glass vanilla soy candle would take about half a second to remove and that the pillar candle was made with palm wax sourced from sustainable regenerated forests. Which is good as not keen on killing orangutans for the sake of some evening sparkle. So in the trolley they went.

The pillar candle is slightly too orange for me to buy again but the soy one is working out nicely sitting among my perfumes. It may not be Diptyque or Jo Malone but, at $7 for 23 hours of burning time, I'm more than okay with that.

  1. Thanks for the tip ;) I'm a bit of a candle addict, I must say. The glass jar one looks great among your perfumes. (My perfumes don't get time to look pretty as I keep them in the fridge)
