Best Kept Secrets Candles

Patchouli,Cedarwood & Ylang // Lemongrass, Pepper & Thyme // Ylang, Bergamot & Rose
If you are an avid reader of Seek My Scribbles, you'll be aware of just how much I love handmade items. Being a crafter myself, I appreciate just how much effort, love and dedication is put into each individual item, which I think makes the products that little bit more special to own. I have always loved candles ever since I was little and would spend time admiring my mum's beautiful floating candles, which she'd place in a glass bowl in our living room. Now that I have my own house, I love to purchase scented candles, varying between creamy vanilla scents, floral notes and refreshing citruses. 

Best Kept Secrets have created a range of natural scented, handmade candles . They are made using essential oils and soy wax (from renewable sources), and are said to burn for up to 35 hours. There are 12 scents to choose from, but I particularly liked the sound of the three featured in the image above. I used to have a Cedarwood & Ylang bubble bath, so already know that I would adore this aromatic scent. I think the Lemongrass would be so refreshing and would definitely wake you up in the morning. The Rose scented candle would be perfect to burn in the late afternoon, when you are getting ready to wind down for the evening ahead.
Daisy Bouquet // Faerie Wishes & Kisses / Vanilla Whisper

When I saw these candle tins on the website, I couldn't help but get a little bit excited. I am definitely going to have to purchase a few when the huge candles in my lounge finally burn out! How adorable does the 'Faerie Wishes & Kisses' candle sound? I'm always attracted to wonderful and whimsical names. I also picked out the Daisy Bouquet and Vanilla Whisper candles to show you, as they are both scents that I equally love. These candles burn for approximately 50 hours. I think they would make such a lovely birthday present or Christmas gift - I know that I would certainly love to receive one! If you are looking for an extra special gift, Best Kept Secrets actually offer a personalised candles service on their website. For £9.99, you can choose from a variety of scents, for different occasions, adding personalised messages and candle toppings.

Do you have a 'signature scent' in your house? Which candles from Best Kept Secrets do you like the sound of?

  5. Ahh, I love all things handmade - coming from a family of quite creative people, so I definitely appreciate the amount of work that goes into these things, and these candles look gorgeous!
    I generally keep Lily Flame's 'Fairy Dust' candle burning around my house, but some of the Best Kept Secrets ones definitely appeal - especially 'Chocolate Dreams'! xx
