Our Burning Love For Scented Candles
The candle industry is having a resurgence, thanks in part to the rise in luxury candle brands and to the increasing role that mindfulness, relaxation and meditation are having in our lives.
It’s a remarkable marketing success, reviving a product that has been virtually obsolete for a century, but today we don’t buy wax and a piece of string, or even a candle, we buy an experience. We purchase fantasy, memories and romance.
Sandalwood & Rose, Lavender Rose & French Vanilla, Cranberry & Orange, Cranberry Orange, Cinnamon Apple, Warm Vanilla Sugar, Candy Cane and Gingerbread. local Candle seller,Wicks of Water Orton, sells a rich and varied range of scented candles. All evocative of a time or a mood, all appealing to our desire to fill our houses with pleasant smells, and memories.
Donna Shingler is the person behind Wicks of Water Orton. In June 2015 she gave birth to her second child, a daughter. When the baby was 12 hours old Donna and her husband were informed that she had a rare critical cardiac condition, and would face open heart surgery throughout her life. Her first 13 months were spent in and out of Birmingham Children’s Hospital, with some lengthy stays of a few months. During this time Donna’s employer made her redundant.
Donna told us “When returning home in July 2016, I was greeted by my husband with everything I needed to make candles at home, he had decided that I would need a hobby. And he was right! As our daughter is so poorly it is not safe to burn the usual paraffin wax around her, so I soon discovered the world of soy wax, which is 100% natural with no harmful chemicals or toxins. I soon realised that I was actually quite good at making candles, with many compliments from friends and family. I quickly decided to make it more than a hobby, and Wicks Of Water Orton was born!”
The candles are 100% soy wax, 100% natural. They are highly scented with professional grade fragrance oil, which is also paraben free. The jar is made from recycled glass, and has an aroma seal too. As soy burns at a lower temperature, each jar gives over 30 hours of burn time. Soy wax gives an amazing burn pool, which fills a room with warming fragrance.
