Filthy Candles Review!
Filthy Candles is an absolute gem that I came across on Instagram (you can check this out here!) and I am SO in love! Not only are Filthy Candles made from 100% Soybean Oil, natural, biodegradable, free from pesticides, Vegan friendly AND are Cruelty Free, but they are also just so freaking cute! There is a stunning vintage vibe to each and every candle – and you can tell they are made with such passion! So! I have 3 candles from the collection – lets get started!
“My main focus is turning old items into beautiful, Eco friendly soy wax candles.
As an absolute animal lover, these candles are cruelty free and vegan friendly as they are made from 100% soybean oil. My cheeky companion, Kevin Bacon likes to help with my candle making – she can be such a rascal for the scented ones! I have a lot of ideas, and almost all of my products are unique and one-of-a-kind so please watch this space for more as I’m still quite new to this and just getting started setting up my shop!”
Vintage Bone China Tea Cup Candle
This – regardless of anything else – is simply beautiful. An absolutely gorgeous set that is so stunning it could just be a display piece. That however would be a huge waste! This candle smells absolutely incredible before it is even lit! Such a gorgeous and understated floral scent that literally fills the room instantly. (£6.00 – £8.00)
Soy Wax Pot Candle infused with Lavender and Amyethyst
So this is an interesting one, not only is it in a super adorable plant pot (decorated with a bow no less…) but this opens a whole new door to crystals and their benefits. This amazing little plant pot contains a hidden amethyst stone within the wax – a powerful and protective stone that has many healing properties. “It guards against psychic attack, transmuting the energy into love and protects you from all types of harm.” Amethyst is a natural tranquilizer, it relieves stress and strain, soothes irritability, balances mood swings, dispels anger, rage, fear and anxiety.. the list goes on. On top of that (as if that isn’t enough!) it smells absolutely divine! (£6.00)
Soy Wax Vintage Tin Candle
As if these candles couldn’t get “unique” enough – this is just genius! I received the “Valda Pastilles” tin and it is so darn cute! (£6.00)
This candle also features wooden wicks – Filthy Candles description below:
“Valda Pastilles” genuine vintage tin, transformed into a beutiful, eco-friendly soy wax candle with two wooden wicks. When burning your wooden wick, you will hear that old familiar crackling sound of a campfire as the flame breaks apart the pieces of the wood that make up the candle wick. Even without any scent in the wax, your candle will give off a light wood-burning scent. These wicks are longer lasting; that can contribute many romantic nights of sitting around a faux fireplace. (please allow a few seconds to hover your flame over the wick for it to really catch)”
So! The incredible Filthy Candles has a stunning Etsy shop – full of unique and beautiful candles. (I know – I’ve use the word beautiful a lot but that is literally Filthy Candles in a nutshell!). Another thing I feel I just have to bring up is the packaging. While these candles are not boxed or individually packaged, the whole package (for delivery) included cards along with a ridiculous amount of real petals! The scent just from opening the box was amazing!
The care, passion and love that is clearly behind this whole brand is absolutely mesmerizing and I am so happy to be able to get behind it!
