Random Home… Smells like Christmas!

I love walking into a home which smells of fresh baking, coffee or the natural aromas of herbs and oils. It’s so much more pleasant than walking in to an onslaught of chemicals and fake aromas. That’s why I absolutely love this gorgeous gift box from Munio Candela, sent to me by MyPure.

This gorgeous box is more than just a soy wax cinnamon scented candle. It contains lots of little rounds, which can be used for various purposes. They can be added into drawers to make your clothes smell lovely – remember the little lavender bags or scented paper when you were a child? I put some into some tea-light holders I don’t use very often, and put them in the bathroom for a delicate fragrance which occasionally drifts up. They also look really pretty, as they have lovely whole cinnamon pieces within.

With something like this, the scent obviously isn’t as strong as if you put them in a closed space like a drawer, but it’s still lovely. Of course, you can also pop them into your luggage when you’re travelling, to help keep everything smelling fresh, or use them in a potpourri burner.

The smell of the candle burning is divine, and it lasts for ages. It looks so pretty and the fragrance is not at all overpowering. It’s subtle and relaxing. Such a perfect scent for Christmas and cold nights, tucked indoors. Once again, the real cinnamon sticks just set this apart as a unique and beautiful piece.

Of course, there’s more to Munio Candela than meets the eye. The box is 100% biodegradable, and the candles are completely hand-made from 100% natural soy wax. And here’s why that’s so good for both us and the environment.

1)Unlike paraffin soy beans are a renewable resource, and therefore much better for the environment.

2) The paraffin wax used in most candles releases toxins and carcinogens when burned.  These are then circulating inside the air we’re breathing in our homes, which can affect those with asthma, or trigger allergies.

3) Soy wax is completely water soluble and any spills/drips are easy to clean up with just water.

4) Soy wax burns more slowly, and therefore lasts up to 50% longer than regular candles.

As you can see, there any many benefits to switching to soy wax candles. So, maybe you can treat yourself, or pick up the perfect present for someone this Christmas. Why not take a look at the gorgeous Munio Candela gift boxes on the MyPure website. They’re available as single candles too.

Thanks for reading. Have a wonderful week!

  1. These look lovely – I also didn’t really know there were quite so many benefits to using soy candles. Good to know 🙂

    1. They are amazing – it surprised me how much rubbish paraffin candles throw out too. 🙂
