I truly am a candle addict, I am in a founding member of Candle Addicts Anonymous, but sssshhh, keep that to yourself, it’s supposed to be anonymous remember! So it’s always with great excitement when new candle scents are released, whether they are new additions or limited editions like the fabulously fun upcoming Coney Island version from Glasshouse Candles, so here’s a round up of some new releases that are on counter now or coming soon.
Online lifestyle brand, My Lula, brings us four emotive candles inspired by the finding of your inner serenity and peace; Love, Courage, Forgiveness and Protection, with each candle featuring different healing crystals within. The LOVE candle carries the crystals of Rose Quartz which is the stone of unconditional love and the most important crystal for the heart (fragrance: Gardenia). The PROTECTION candle contains Amethyst and Rose Quartz crystals with Amethyst being an extremely powerful and protective stone that helps to calm and relax the mind. (fragrance: Lily of the Valley). The COURAGE candle Carnelian and Red Jasper crystals and combined these crystals help to anchor in the present moment whilst restoring motivation and fearless sense (fragrance: Lime Blossom).
